    Anyone use A/C Delco fuel pump? Factory replacement? My Astro has an Airtex from Advance auto parts. Lifetime warranty and I had to replace it once already

    I try to stick to AC Delco and Delphi for many GM replacement parts. Airtex has a pretty crappy reputation for fuel pumps. Lifetime warranty is great except for breakdowns, tow bills, and having to do a not-fun job over and over.

    I replaced an "autozone special" fuel pump with an ACdelco one...been a couple of years now. Highly recommend it. I'm sure this one will last for a long while, especially since i never run it lower than 1/4 tank, helps keep the pump cool.

    I'll be putting a "parts store special" fuel pump into my Suburban, but I plan to cut an access hole vs dropping the tank since I'm confident it's going to fail prematurely.

    Bought this one for my Tahoe, WAY cheaper than any local parts house too.

    Also did the fuel pump access, so much easier to do it this way.

    Is this the correct one for a 93 c1500? Just need to make sure as shipping it back to the States would be a killer..
