    D15ZB? Which car do you have? That's not a real engine code...

    As long as you don't mod your engine, your stock fuel pump will probably be ok.

    Hmmm. Well, if you want to swap out the fuel pump to the OEM B16 unit, it's not that expensive. I nabbed my Walbro for $150 (expensive)- I'm sure you can get an OEM B16 pump for much less than that. Installation is pretty easy too.

    I honestly think you'll be ok, but I don't know the flowrates of all the Honda fuel pumps off the top of my head. I'd have to look it up... but I don't want you to try something and blow it up because I told you it would be ok.
