im at the beginning stages of doing a mean stroker build and am considering the Walbro 255 pump. Im just having a hard time spending $130 on a new sending unit assy. and another $100+ on another new fuel pump too.
I'm still around

When I did the swap I eliminated the stock fuel filter in favor of a corvette fuel filter/regulator in prep for an LS swap. But with the stock filter/regulator, I don't see why this pump wouldn't work just fine.

Also I drove around for quite a while with this setup and place with the stock 4.0 and worked rather well, it just ran a little rich when the ecu was in open loop because the corvette fuel pressure regulator runs at a higher pressure.
