1997 V8 Fuel pump replacement???

Anybody out there have any thoughts on a fuel pump replacement for a 1997 V8?

The factory OEM units seem fairly pricey.
What is an equivalent aftermarket pump(s) that will work?

Does anybody have a procedure on how to go about replacing the pump?

Any info would be great!

You could likely replace it with a walbro or other aftermarket pump. You'll need to figure out what the stock flow capacity of the pump is, however. I believe it's around 50 gph. A walbro 255 should flow plenty, for example.
