    I need a fuel pump but cant get one

    MY fuel pump is on its last leg according to my mechanic. They ran a bunch of tests and stuff i guess. I am supposed to leave for NY on monday (1000 mile drave) and the only two places in town say they cant get one until the 28th. Is there some place that has fuel pumps for my 02 WRX that wouldnt charge an arm and a leg to overnight it?

    It'll be fine for stock setup, and it'll be nice for future upgrades (e.g., VF34)

    Might be to late but I think you will need a tune because it is larger than stock.

    Will it be bad if i dont get a tune? I dont know of a place close to springfield that does tuning. How much is tuning usually? And will the bigger pump give me worse gas milege?

    The vehicle should be ok without a tune, a vehicle's computer can vary a few things... If the regulator is doing its job the pressure to the rail should be the same as stock, if the pressure is a little higher it won't even matter, the ecu can vary pulse width to make up for fuel pressure irregularitys.
