Fuel pumps : BOSCH 044 vs AEROMOTIVE 1000 vs WALBORO 255LPH

Alright after a long debate in choosing a fuel pump i ran into a bind. Before my friend Dave aka guitarjunkie died we were talking about what would be a suitable fuel pump for my set up. He wanted me to go with the bosch 044, i wanted the a1000 but everybody else was running the 255lph walbro.

so now i bought the a1000 but i want to back out because i think it will be a overkill for my set up.

GARRETT T70
BOSCH 1600
VENOM 750
KG PARTS RAILS
SS LINES AND AN FITTINGS-but i stopped at the filter
aeromotive fpr
haltech e6x
street port

QUESTIONS:
1- What are the modifications i have to do to run a BOSCH 044?
2- What problems will i run into via voltages and rewiring?
3- Will the infamous $99 walbro support 450whp?
4- Is my a1000 to much for my set up?

The walbro should support 450hp , and it should also be less noisy than the aeromotive unit ,
You can never have too much fuel though

I had an Aeromotive pump before, actually the one bigger then the A1000....it's alittle noisey. Don't go with the walbro, they are known to fail, go with the Bosch 044 and be done with it.

well my set up is almost done everything i noted on the first post is done i am just at the crossroads because i think my aeromotive pulls out 13v and i need to do a couple more thins to make it work

the bosch 044 cost close to what i paid for my aeromotive

i dont mind the noise, hell the engine will be even louder at idle, does anyone here have the a1000 installed already if so show me and the rest of the forum how did you run your set up

I have the walbro 255 lph pump in my S5 T2 1st gen. It failed under full boost and I leaned out and destroyed all 3 apex seals on the rear rotor last December. Now after another engine rebuild i'm definitely getting a Bosch 044 or Aeromotive A1000. Has anyone ever had a problem with the Bosch?

Bosch 044 all the way.

the fact that 99% of all the grand-am and ALMS cars minus the p1 cars have been running them for years and porsche trusts them in they're RSR's should say enough.....plus they produce very little noise.
