    What's the difference in buying a Apr fuel pump for £800 as apose to having my oem refurbished by APR for £468 . Is there any difference in the running or performance of the pump ? Cheers

    There is no difference. apart from the fact they supply a new pump and their internals as a whole for £800 and for £468 they'll just change the internals on your current one.

    why not buy the autotech internals, probably the most popular and cheapest option, it is an easy job to fit

    Yeh seen the auto tech internals but for around a extra £100 would rather let Apr do it and test it lol . Don't trust myself when it comes to stripping a such a important part as the fuel pump lol

    Fitting the internals requires somewhere very clean.

    I have an Autotech and had the internals fitted professionally but the APR or Loba are equally good.

    I did mine on the conservatory table and used petrol to clean everything, I was walking inside with a half bottle full of petrol, tripped over the step and threw it straight over the table, wall and all down my arm, it took a while to clear the smell lol!

    Theres not actually alot to the HPFP but you need to be kind of mechanically minded when it comes to replacing the internals. The use of the correct tools for the job is half the battle as it has been known for people to try and bodge it and get it wrong by trying to be gash and then try and blame the manufacturers for making a faulty HPFP. Doesnt work. As S3Alex has said you cant go wrong with either Autotech or Loba (more expensive)

    I can highly recommend the loba hpfp comes complete and tested by them so adds peace of mind and no need to worry about building it yourself ;).

    Takes 5 mins to fit and 25 mins to get the black pipe underneath fitted which is a pain in the behind as not much room to work with but if you follow the guide on here its straight forward enough oh and remember and get a cam follower to change over while you have the pump off . (think loba now supply the cam follower as part of there hpfp but don`t quote me on that) .

    Got mine from GNJ Motorsport and can recommend them as service was second to none .

    Of course,but the other side of that would be that the Autotech internals are cheaper still.

    I think the best thing is to decide on a budget,in the knowledge that ALL of these pumps do their jobs very well,and are good for well over 500bhp.

    The only proviso for the Autotech as a DIY kit is to be scrupulously clean in doing the work.
