Best place to buy Walbro 255?

Anyone purchased a Walbro 255 from a good place that they can recommend to me?

I'd like to purchase one today or tomorrow.

I've seen them from $80-125 a few places, but I wanted to see if anyone had a specific place to recommend that was tried and true.

Thanks in advance!

Does it have to be car-specific? Some of them say EVO only or STi only.

All the ones from this place have been real. I have had some china junk from other suppliers. You can see it in the surface finish and tool marks.

Thanks Nick, my worry with buying them from a random place was just that...I didn't want to get a Chinese knockoff!

I can get one from world pac - they went up sadly from like 65 2 years ago to now like $110! The Scan craps sucks still - I have one in my 9000 and the g/f 9-3 - they work, but the installation kit they provide is silly and annoying - but they are $85

Just find a BOSCH pump from an early 90's Saab - they last about 200,000 miles on average and are easier to fix I have a spare 91' 9000 "Aero" Fuel pump as back-up.

I'm going with a new fuel pump, mine died again.

Is lightning motor sports a good place to buy from? Snowman is telling me that this might be the place which sold nick the Chinese knockoff walbro.

no lightning does not sell knockoffs, i have done tons of business with them, and spoken with the owner multiple times. great place, and if honda-tech wasnt a piece of shit now you could probably find a coupon.
