Death of a VP44

So I just got my rig back from the shop that installed a FASS150. I was getting dead pedal so I went with the cheaper fix before the expensive one. Got it home and got the cough that means my pump is more than likely tats up. I started looking for a new pump ASAP, what I need info on after all the huffing and puffing is. What are the benefits of a performance pump to a stock, I have read that performance pumps can die in 20k? I will be doing this in my driveway. So which way is the best way to go.

MOD Info: Superchip programmer, 4in. MRBP, K&N intake, Banks High Ram, FASS150

#1 ditch the Superchip...

Id just find a SO VP44 they are good for 600hp +...imo Industrail Injection and BlueChip make the best VPs (that arnt Hot Rods)...so i'd do that...

I have had a special X from blue chip diesel for a little over a year and have had no problems what so ever, also better fuel mileage.

Good idea to add the low fuel pressure light they have also!

99 2500 dodge cummins, HTS auto trans, quadzilla/edge ez, edge stage 2 nozzles, HX40,special X pump, big line kit, custom dual filter intake, custom exhaust, holley blue, adjustable boost elbow, new intercooler boots, t/c lock up switch, suncoast t/c, leveling kit, new 285 bfg's, all the gauges. New TPS

Stock SO VP44 is just fine...

I'm going to be crossing the 100K miles mark on mine and keep on trucking... I'm also on a 2 cycle oil diet for the VP44...

STOCK PUMPS

SO (Standard Output 235/460)
HO (High Output 245/505)

You can put a SO pump on a HO engine. But you CANNOT put a HO pump on a SO engine. All Hotrod pumps are made from SO pumps.

SO is responds to electronics better...HOs are only capable of like 525hp (ish)...aftermarket...

For a SO Industrail or BlueChip

For a HotRod VP44 Scheid or Industrail

For anything bigger Industrail Dragon Flow
