Bimmerworld. Used it on my old E36M3 race car. Never a problem.

Go with your favorite vendor, they are all the same.

Default Re: Which Fuel Starvation Kit?


From what I gather from other threads and PM's from members, the BW is tried and true and the obvious choice given the price (about half the money VAC is worth) BUT.... With the car that has 80K on the original pump, the VAC kit seems more appealing with (2) oem pumps included vs moving my original pump to the driver's side and having an OE equivalent at the passenger side. Also, with the VAC kit since both pumps are OEM, is it possible to have one pump as the sending unit and have an accurate fuel gauge?

What I'm looking for since the last post was four years ago is updated feedback from BW users; how's your kit held up since then AND given my vehicle's current mileage would the VAC kit be the logical choice? Surge tank or fuel cell set-up's are way out of my budget, but I appreciate the suggestions. I'm looking for feedback with respect to these two kits only.

Just installed the Bimmerworld kit exactly 2 days ago. It actually does come with 2 new fuel pumps, so no reusing of the old pump. Your info is outdated.

Took about 2 hours to install, but we took our time. One of the diagrams was just a tad confusing as far as orientation, so we followed the actual pictures mostly. Car is running fine and will be tested on the track next weekend.

With a larger surface area did you use the OEM pump or upgraded?
