Quick question for those running stage 2+

I have the VWR intake, stage 1 revo, forge diverter and about to get a downpipe installed.

my question: is the HPFP completely necessary for stage 2+?

Yes. The stock fuel pump can't handle the necessary fuel demands.

thanks for that. I'll search the forums for the best one price vs reliability, unless anyone has any advice on this thread.

As far as I know Evolution Motorsports are the only ones who do not require an upgraded HPFP for any of their tunes.

I talked to a guy today at auchtuning in Redmond Washington who does a lot of apr stuff and he said it most definitely helps and fer sure is nice, but not completely necessary until stg3 or ko4

It's definitely a huge improvement installing a hpfp. From stg 1 to 1+(new flash + hpfp) I noticed the difference entering the on ramp as I left the installer. The improvement was pretty obvious to me with the seat time I had coming from stg 1.

As far as fuel pump options, you've got several. Apr offers either a rebuild or brand new, Autotech offers a rebuild kit. Price point I believe looks like this for the 3 options I've listed, in order of least $$ out of pocket to most $$.

Autotech rebuild kit/Apr rebuilt hpfp/Apr new hpfp.

Good luck!
