Why me? I don't have a 90-93. IIRC actually documented this on his NA6 but good luck finding it. I feel like it was a Wally 225

Ask yourself this question: Do I care if I can hear my fuel pump or not?

If you care: Deatschwerks DW200
If you don't care (aka BECAUSERACECAR): Walbro 255lph
If you want everyone to know: Aeromotive A1000

The important part is you get it with the install kit that includes the proper pickup sock pre-filter chingadera. This is what will give you access to the last 3 gallons of gas in your tank.

Looking around either pump will be purchased from FAB9 I don't see anyone else thats even close to his prices. I assume he includes the kit?

I assume he sells it with the install kit because he is no slouch. I only mentioned it because there are a lot of vendors who do not include the Miata specific install kit.

18 got his from Fab, ask him. Or like maybe ask Fab directly? What are you a Millennial?

FWIW I <3 DW200 vs the Wally 190HP that I had before. No issues with either on the stock NB regulator and system.

The fuel pump is actually quite a lot quieter now that I covered it back up with all the parcel shelf goodies. You can only hear it faintly whine while stopped at a light.

With the metal cover and carpet and stuff off, it sounded like a siren in the cockpit.

I love it.

Quote from Bryan, I see why you all like him so much.

Quote:
The noise is one thing but you have to consider why it's making noise and
what that means. Noise the result of friction and friction means the Walbro
requires more amperage to flow the same numbers, it's also likely the reason
that the Walbro flow will fall off before the DW200. Basically the WB pumps
are old technology, it's not a bad pump by any means, it's just outdated
technology. It's like trying to compare a BW EFR turbo to an old Garrett
GT. We actually make more money on the WB pumps but I'm well versed enough
that I can't recommend it over the DW.
