    i have a 93del sol si and swapped a jdm b16a into it last august. I plan on running a 35shot of nitrous by next month and getting a JRSC in May 04. I will also be getting hondata s200b shortly. My stock fuel pump for a d16y7 has 90,000 miles on it and figured replacing it couldn't hurt, especially at high RPMs.

    My questions are:
    (1) Is it even worth replacing my stock pump with a b16 or ITR fuel pump, or will i not even notice a difference until i get the nitrous and SC?

    (2) What LPH rate should i get? Right now i'm N/A, in a month or two i'll be running a 35 shot, and in 11months i'll be running 9lbs and a 15shot, so should i just wait til i get the supercharger to upgrade the fuel pump and get something around 255lph? Can i even run a 255lph pump on a near-stock N/A b16 with propper tuning, or will i run into problems?

    thanks for any imput.

    for now you are fine but i would highly reccomend an upgraded fuel pump for your future application. i hear that walbro sells nice pumps. i'm sure others on here will have some other ideas.
