I'm not familiar with that brand, but since the price difference isn't terribly dramatic, I would definitely stick with OEM. THat brand may be very well be good (I have no idea), but for parts that will leave me on the side of the road like a fuel pump, I'm sticking with OEM or better. I have always been told by mechanics who have been doing it a long time, do NOT by cheap fuel pumps.

^ That. URO stuff is generally of lesser quality that most aftermarket parts, and WAY poorer than OEM. It's so bad many aftermarket suppliers quit carrying it.

also look into walbro. they are aftermarket high quality units. you will most likely need to replace the sock as well, which i believe comes seperate.
