Thanks boofer for the warning, but the only thing a fuel pump does, is pumping fuel - with a specific operation pressure. The MEAT & DORIA pump delivers 3.8 bar (= 55.114 PSI at sea level), which exactly meets the L-18 specs between 53 and 58 PSI. The worst case can be that the pump is not working anymore - this happened twice in 8 month with the genuine Carter pump
