Fuel Pump - Delphi or Airtex ?

My 99 e250 - looked over some stuff on the web. (sorry its a 250 not 350 -- corrected)

Delphi or Airtex complete assembly - same cost for either.

Any input about which one to use ?

For a data point, I got a Delphi for our '97 Caravan a few months ago simply because I'd heard of Delphi and hadn't heard of Airtex (whatever that's worth). It fits and works. I saw an Airtex video which said to reuse the QD clips. The Delphi came with new clips. On reflection, I might have paid up to 5% more for the Delphi.

I just did a Delphi vs Airtex fuel pump search using Yahoo and in the first page of hits were a bunch of people having problems with Airtex (3 bad brand new units, 6 mos of life, etc.) and definitely recommendations for Delphi.

When I needed one, I did the same kind of search for my old BMW radiator and found that Nissens was the hot tip where some of the other brands (same price range on Rock Auto) were REALLY bad news. So I got the Nissens. I'll tell you in 20 years if it holds up

No problem at all asking here, but the Internet can give you some really quick feedback at times if you have to make a snap decision. I would then do a search on Dephi fuel pump reviews and you may find some clusters of info on many websites that sell them. Of course there will be different models and styles, but if a brand tends to be positively reviewed, I'd have more faith in it.

Delphi was a spinoff from GM's Delco division, for what it's worth. Also, if there is a Bosch or Denso unit available (I have no idea) for a decent price, I have good faith in those brand names (but would still check reviews). I'm in Detroit and when I was working, I did pension work for Delphi, Bosch, and Denso as tier 1 suppliers.

Have a great holiday,
George

Its odd Airtex is bashed so soundly these days----they were the OEM supplier to Ford for quite a while.

Delphi and or Denso would be good choices based on their overall corporate reputation for quality electronic and electric automotive components.
