Does anyone know of a good brand universal fuel pump for a 75 280Z. AutoZone has one for $30. What do you think?

most likely that will be for a carberated system and only will put out 3-8 PSI. the fuel pump for F.I. is like 35-40 psi...
i may be wrong.

Don't do it

A universal cannot put out FI pressures. Go to the U-pull-it and get a used one off any 280Z or ZX for $15. They last a while and at that price you can afford to change them every couple of years.

Re: Don't do it

I want to put an electric pump on my 71. Do I need to get a pressure regulator if I get the ZX pump?


Thanks

Don't do that either :p

Carbs will use a low pressure universal pump. If you use a FI pump, you will squirt fuel out the carbs big time. Carbs need 5-8 psi of fuel pressure, fuel injection (EFI on the Zs) typically needs 35-40 psi.
