You can't pick up a Walbro as a replacement. The only unit you can replace the factory high pressure fuel pump with is the same Siemens unit. A direct injection fuel system is more complex than the typical efi system. Aside from that even if you could put in a Walbro pump you would have to change the fuel mapping in the engine management.

lol... its not that pump... its the HPI pump (2000psi, for direct injection)

Also, my dealer is independently owned, and they run a very nice detialing center, they are very good... not like other dealers.

You got your car back yet buddy? Please do let us know if its the new pump or not. I'm sure it would really be helpful to us all who has and are currently suffering from fuel pump problems on their car. How does it drive?

Not sure if its that easy to get a pump capable of putting out 2200 psi....and that is what our pumps do.

Yeah, sorry I didn't post earlier about this, but I have been driving her all night, can you blame me? I talked to the mechanic who looked at the two stock numbers, they are different. They look the same from the outside though, but different part numbers. Didn't ask for those numbers but he has been brutally honest with me in the past (actually everyone at the dealership has been) so I see no reason for him to lie.

Thats real good news! Looks as if the new pump is out for sure already. If its not too much trouble for you, do you mind getting the new part number from your mechanic? It would really do me and I'm sure a lot of people out there a lot of help since we'd finally know exactly what part they need to replace our bad pumps with. Thanks buddy! Good to hear your car's up and running again.
