e fuel pumps for 238/80 injectors

ok it looks I have a leaking fuel pump on my 97 so e fuel time for it . and I plan to do 238/80 injectors this summer with Kc turbo .

can I still use both tanks ? is ANYONE using 238/80 with duel tanks ?

and what pump should I use will a Bosch 044 be enough.

I will be using a 444fab kit as I like the one I have on my 95 it has Bosch 044 but planned 160/30 for it . but my 97 is going 238/80 . so here's my options .

Walbro
Standard pump is the walbro gsl392
Good for up to ~600hp
Lifespan is 1-3 years on average
Excellent performance pump at a great price.
Although this pump isn't as reliable as others, don't let that scare you away from running one as they flow a ton of fuel for the price.
Running twins or carrying a spare will guarantee you never get stranded.
30 day warranty on walbro pumps.
Add a spare bare pump to any order for $72

Bosch SD
OEM Bosch superduty pump.

Incredibly reliable and was used in 99-03 trucks from the factory.
Roughly 400hp capacity
10 year average lifespan, this pump is recommended for all smaller injector applications not looking for room to grow.

Aem
Based on the Bosch 044 frame this is the best best budget high hp pump.

Solidly supports 350/200 ~800hp

Long term reliability is unknown however there are many in service for multiple years with no known failures.
Not recommended for dual tanks applications*

Fuelab Prodigy
Clearly the king of pumps but with the primo pricetag to match.
1000hp capacity on high speed setting
Must be run with single tank*

Twin Pumps
Our signature twin pump design.

Parallel flow results in nearly double the output plus the reliability of a backup pump

The horsepower rating isn't much use. The flow rate at a given PSI is what is needed to find the right pump. I highly doubt all of those are rated at 600hp at 60psi and they probably have a varying flow rate also.

There's a few people here running big injectors and i'm sure they will chime in. With a good clean return line you can go overkill on the pump and not have to worry about overheating it from being dead headed.

ya I'm leaning to the AEM pump as Corey sells it so I assume it's a good pump . Irate states in there 238/80 SECTION a walbro pump setup will run them and still use both tanks . I'm not fond of the walbro because they don't seem to last .

I'd run an OEM super duty 7.3 electric pump. Or if you need more psi two of them. Cheap and if they ever fail you can easily source one on the road, and quiet good pumps compared to walbaro garbage

that's why I was thinking the AEM as is a Bosch style and could be replace with a Bosch if need . I for sure don't like the walbro reputation.

Following, thinking about running the same setup (444fab and 238s).
How do you like the 444fab setup on your other truck? Did you have to buy anything else to get it installed?

I just installed the AEM 400lph from Corey and it is good so far. It sounds similar to a Fass pump. You will need reducer fittings and larger clamps to mount the pump.
