If you need upgraded pump you can source a Walbro E85 pump for $180 plus $20 of fittings and that solves the LPFP issue. There is a DIY out.
I think the Walbro was a good aftermarket solution if your LPFP was actually failing, but I think they found that pump alone was still dropping pressure because it couldn't maintain the surge volume required at peak torque.
