Default Fuel Pump for Verso Tune

I rang up to get a quote on getting a verso tune done on my car (should be in July), that aside, I was advised I should upgrade my fuel pump from the standard fuel pump (my car for those who dont know is a my02 wrx) to something better...

Firstly, is it really necessary, or are they trying to sell me something i dont need.
Secondly, if I should upgrade the fuel pump, can someone please:
A - Recommend a good fuel pump and roughly what it cost to buy
B - Some please give me a run through on how to change the fuel pump over.

They want to charge me $300 for a walbro fuel pump fitted, but from what I understand, I can save a decent amount of money by just buying the pump and fitting it myself.

Yes you need a fuel pump upgrade. Yes you can save yourself some cash fitting it yourself.

pump upgrade is for peace of mind.

02 car, 5 year old pump.

Whereas you can upgrade the pump (to something that flows better) and something newer. Pump failure is gay.

Thinking of getting Verso soon on my 07, would the standard 2.5lt engine fuel pump be fine or should i upgrade aswell?

The only mods I will have is a 3"tbe.

At the moment I don't think it would be worth it for you. Maybe worth thinking about when you do more mods.

Why would you buy a second hand pump?

No need to upgrade, it's something you do when it gets old
