Is that just the price of the pump in both instances? Does the $515 include the labor?

Any shop will charge around $400-$600 to do the job, they have to drop the fuel tank and mark up the cost of the pump. If you do it yourself, then yeah, it all be $167 for the pump. Don't forget to change the fuel filter too.

That is for the part only. Hanger assembly, pump, sender , strainer

Is spending the xtra money to buy a factory part worth it? Even with doing the labor ourselves?

In my opinion NO most of the fuel manufactures make a better pump than OEM, airtex for one, carter for another. Use a major part store like NAPA or CarQuest for your pump.

Go with one with a warranty from NAPA, O'reilly's or advanced. They are way cheaper and with a warranty its worth the gamble.

I'll answer this way. The striker which screws into the pillar of a door to keep it closed sells for about thirty bucks at a dealership. You can buy one on the internet for about eleven bucks. A relative recently retired from selling autos and managing a GM dealership. He has the best description yet for a dealership. - A dealership is an auto repair facility that sells new cars.
