Nothing yet. I've left messages for ZZ Performance (Cobalt guys) and PT Performance (mostly Dodge stuff). Neither have contacted me yet.

zzperformance is 10 minutes from my house :) Dealt with them a few times for my 97 RS with the 3.8 v6. In fact, they were the last place I dyno'd it at.
Hi my name is Travis and I have an addiction, an addiction to anything and everything dealing with v6 camaros. :wave:

Cool, give them a call and see if they are interested (not that bugging vendors necessarily works). I got a message back from PT Performance and they are interested. They need a pump and a car to test with. I asked them where they are to see if we have a member near by. I'd be willing to buy a used pump to send them., or maybe take donations for the common cause???

Here's the response I got from PT Performance:

We are located in WA state. I am sure I can find a test vehicle but I need a fuel pump to test with first. They are very similar to the new VW fuel pumps and we have already started working on those. I will order up a new fuel pump and see what we can come up with for you and the other GM owners.

Get back in touch with me in 4 weeks and I should have more news for you.

very cool! Hopefully they can come up with something for these engines then. Nice work tracking them down and contacting them

Thanks Travis and Gretchen for all the research to get this going. This will certainly help those in need of more fuel.

Also got an update from Orange5thGen and his project with IPS. They are trying to use the pump from a SUV (assuming Traverse) because the Cobalt guys have had some success. With his father in ICU I don't expect we'll hear anything right away, but thought everyone would like to know.
