So what do you do if your tuner says "needed more fuel, so the numbers aren't where they should be" when you go to pick up your car?

Replacing the pump will ensure you're not caught short during the tune. You would need a retune if you put it in later, which would cost you 3-4 times the cost of a pump. Put it in the first time.

Have read elsewhere on here of fake Walbros floating about, spend the extra $20 for safe peace of mind.
