Default Spectra fuel pumps

Anyone have any experience with Spectra fuel pumps? Need one for my p80 AWD. They claim to be quality and I can get one for about $100 less than OEM.

How many times do you want to do the fuel pump in a P80 AWD?

Yeah, what ^^^^ said. Delco also claims to be quality, had 2 different experiences with them before I said never again.

Get a Bosch.

Yah I usually spring for better or OEM. But with Tasca being the cheapest at $335 after tax and shipping I started looking around. I was planning on cutting the hole in the floor so I wasnt too worried about install. But was curious as to their quality as I can get a cheapo for $120 or Spectra for $220. Not worth the extra if its crap in a nicer box.

I'd even throw an AEM in there for a budget pump that's decent, as long as you get a legit one.

Are you dropping the rear suspension or cutting an access hole?

Leaning toward the access hole. Only drawback is it will void the warranty to cut the harness.
