The same guy told me "the reason the HPFP breaks is because people don't drive it hard enough, if you just cruise around, you'll blow the HPFP faster"

As someone who works in the auto industry, the stupidity of these comments is absolutely hilarious. I can assure you parts are not designed to break because someone is "just cruising around". A lot of engineering goes into pretty much every part by every major automaker...the sales guy is clearly ignorant and thinks you are too!!

What a load of BS. Run away!!
