Well I've been reading about this pump and it can get up to 700hp which is crazy I know. No I havnt bought one yet just looking at all options I might be the lab rat and try it and let you guys know. I'll buy a Walbro one too and do a comparison.

They seem to look VERY similar to the RCM and Scooby Worx fuel pumps. Are they all rebranded?

Hi mate, not yet but I am off work next week so I will get a chance then. Quality of the unit and accessories looks good though! I cannot foresee any issues when it comes to fitting but we will see

Why not just buy a pump that is already proven, we ain't talking about huge sums of money here.

Looking at the pump, looks like rcm/scoobyworx/aeromotive etc which are all same pump from same factory and just branded for the customer.

Hey if it is and it's cheaper then why not.

As far as I know our SWRD and Aeromotive are the same. RCM were the same but they have now sourced their own from a different supplier.

Not sure on the kemso but price would tell me that it's a cheap copy. As our cost price on the genuine ones is a considerable amount more than the retail price on the Kemso version so unless they are selling pumps at a loss they are cheap copies

Seems to make sense then if the kemso ones are under cost price

I know this is an old post but thought I would do a Quick update on this pump, I took the plunge and bought and fitted it into my classic and it's a great little pump I've recently had my scooby mapped, running around 350hp and it's working absolutely flawlessly. its really quiet,comes with everything needed to fit it,it flows so well my mapper had to turn down my fuel pressure regulator in my opinion it's well worth the money.
