Gents, I think I'll upgrade the fuel pump and add the hotwire kit. Question is I've heard that the Walbro needs to be modified to fit the fuel tank. I've heard that Red Armstrong has a [email protected] fuel pump. Which do you guys recommend? Thanks... powersix

I put a Walbro 340 in my car last year. Pretty easy install. I'm not sure what modification you're talking about. The only thing I did was replace the pulsation dampener with a straight piece of fuel line. No big deal. I bought my pump and hot wire harness from Racetronix. Very complete and pretty easy to install. Don't know about Red's pump but I'm sure it's fine. A lot of people running both of the above mentioned pumps. Few complaints about either. :)

reds pump is simply a Walbro...no mods required for anyone's pump as long as it is sold for a Buick.

The Walbro is a tad smaller in length than stock. Just put on the hose supplied to take care of that problem. DO NOT install the pulsator! Being a Hot Air car the plug in is different than the 86/87. You might have to splice on a connector or see if they might have an adapter.
