    I went with the Walbro it was a drop in and found it cheaper than the Aeromotive. I have it and the Riva RRFPR good combo and works great

    With your mods.... a Walbro will be all you'll ever need. It's a direct drop in replacement, as stated earlier. Just be careful where you purchase it!

    Do a search, there are several threads about this topic. Both are NOT direct drop ins and require a little cutting on the housing on the newer S3/T3 skis. The Aeromotive kit in the store is very nice and $$, but draws more amps than the Walbro at any given AMP load, and should be installed with a relay. The Walbro works great, cost about $90 from Summit.

    Go to Riva site and look at the directions for their Aeromotive kit, it explains what is required perfectly.

    Several of us have been running a Walbro for years with great results.

    Damn iPad is a pain when trying to do a search and post links, sorry!

    Didn't know about the increased amp draw, that's good info. Walbro sounds like the ticket, but also wondering if anyone has experience with the HFP units?

    Just like JT said you need a relay harness for the Aeromotive as they draw more. Our skis the Walbro was a drop in.

    The Walbro has held up well, on my 05' Turbo at over 70psi fuel pressure with a RRFPR,for many years.
    I run over 9K and 20psi boost with it now, If i get some Much needed larger injectors, I will be able to drop the fuel pressure down to around 43 psi
