I had surprisingly good results from a very cheap pump, Kemso. Ran great for two years or so. Only took it out cause I found a brand new OEM unit that was going cheap. The kemso pump is now a spare.
It's a rebranded aeromotive stealth pump and I doubt very much it is made in Japan.

That's a great price for a fuel pump, but it looks like it doesn't come with a low fuel sensor. Can it be rewired to use the existing sensor? Also, how hard was it to replace the old fuel pump with this one?

Ah just saw that you have to disassemble the fuel pump assembly to add this in with the existing low fuel sensor and fuel filter.

I ended up buying Kemso. It was too hard to pass up at $25 USD.

Thanks for recommending it Islandboy! Besides the intake strainer, did you have any other problems assembling it?

Glad to help mate.
The new pump fitted up to the old pump assembly easy. An electrical connector, fuel line and a band clamp.
Just reuse the old strainer if the supplied strainers don't fit. I gave the old strainer a good clean.

That's a relief to hear. Would you recommend changing the fuel filter as well?

If it was me. I would drop in a new fuel filter.
The one in there might be fine but how can you tell? By putting in a new one you can be sure.

Aye tae tha'.
Once you're in, and don't want to have to go back in, wiser to replace it, even more so, it being a nickel and dime part.

That's a good point. I'm not trying to do this again in the near future after this time. I ended up ordering the fuel gasket, fuel return filter and the fuel filter from quantum. It was cheaper than OEM, hopefully it's just as good.
