Your pump will do the job, the OEM might be made by the same company, maybe not. Most of the time you pay for the name on it and licensing fees. No worries, put the $58 pump in and drive it like you stole it.

Sorry Tom but i cant agree here, make sure the pump can supply the fuel pressure that the cis system requires, if it cant keep pressure at the fuel rails, your going to run into fuel starvation issues, also a lot of these bargain car parts companies, never really check fitment. I would recommend buying al parts from either 928rus or 928 international, roger at 928rus is an expert on parts fitment, as there are huge variations between years, and even half years.
