So I had my Walbro 255 seize up on my while driving but locally I was able to limp to Advance auto parts on the way home from work yesterday.

I didn't want to be stuck but I didn't want to pay $100+ for a stock fuel pump. So I got online with my phone to see if they sold walbros; most auto-parts store workers aren't going to even know that name.

So I found a thread in the DSM world that said an Airtex E2448 was a comparable pump and it was $65.99. Turns out, it's a walbro pump in an airtex box. It even says walbro on the pump!

It comes with a sock, wiring harness, instructions, and a 1 year warranty. I checked around and the stats I find on it is "75 gallons per hour free-flow rate" which equates to about 283LPH. The free-flow rate for a walbro 255 is identical.

So if anyone needs a backup pump or are looking for an upgrade/cheap way to go dual walbro 255s, Advance auto (and probably anywhere that has airtex fuel pumps) will have basically a walbro 255 for under $70 with a 1-year warranty.

The Airtex E2448 is a rebadged Walbro 255, the exact unit us S chassis guys upgrade to. This is the real deal, made by walbro.

Just called up Walbro and talked to one of the fuel pump guys. He explained that it is indeed a made-in-USA Walbro 255 in an Airtex box. He did say that Airtex does manufacture their own pumps too, but the E2448 is sold directly to them.

So if anyone had doubts about them being refurb/lower quality, hopefully that settles you down!

They show in stock at my local autozone too.

That's pretty cool. Seem's something has been happening to alot of peoples walbro fuel pumps with them dieing and going bad, or being loud. Glad we ditched those walbro's and went with a deatchwerks pump.

Where is the best place to order the Deatschwerks fuel pump from, straight from their website?
