Altenative to fass

Well im looking for A lift pump to replace stocker for reliability. Fass system is to expensive for my blood right now. What are some good alternatives. Or maybe just go with a fass 95 gph by itself or bd or what? Any opinions appreciated. Please tell me what you use and why, and the pros and cons. Stuff like if the fass is loud etc. I have an 01 auto stock, new turbo soon and pipes hopefully goerend triple disk when tranny goes. I need reliability foremost as I pull horses to shows and it is my daily driver to and from work.

Holley blue pump is a popular upgrade. I think it's around $120.

When I was looking for an alternative to the stock lift pump I looked into the fass systems, but like you said, they were way to high priced for me at the time. I put a holley blue on. Well my brother and I are both running them. I just cut into the fuel line on the frame and put it there, both of ours are still pumping through the stock lift pumps for now, both were fairly new when we installed the holley blue. My reason was for price, and most all the trucks here run them with no problems. I paid right at $115 for mine, my brother found some on ebay that had been remaned for around $50 I think. His is a lil louder than my new one, but once the motor is running can't hear either of the holley blues on ours. Good luck with your addition.

I have a FASS and love it, but you could put another stock pump near the tank and run the two in tandom, plenty of pressure and not to expensive. Just another option.

The Holley is a really popular option, and so is the Walbro pump from GDP. The FASS is nice for the added filtration, but If I was buying a standalone pump, I wouldn't buy the FASS standalone, I think they are still a couple hundo, and they are no different than a Holley or Walbro.

That's kind of what I thought too.

I hate to say it, but I rarely hear of problems with a newer style stock fuel pump mounted on the frame back near the tank. If I absolutely positively couldn't get a FASS, I'd start to look in that direction.

Good luck !!
