Recommended replacement as the filter is part of the assembly for some stupid reason.
That stupid reason is because the strainer is the only filtration in the entire fuel system. There is no external filter to replace on our trucks.
A Denso pump and strainer kit from Advance Auto Parts is $138. Personally, since Superdak is on the squeeze, I would recommend a Walbro 255HP. I used one of those for years in my race car and made over 450whp on ethanol with it.
Superdak, the reason for the 80K change is mainly because of the strainer. Since that is technically "not serviceable", the factory tells you to change the whole thing. I'm at 135K on my truck and have never had any issues with the fuel system. Since the truck rolled off the show room floor, I have ran BG44K every 10-12K. At no point have I had to do anything exclusive of this.
If it turns out you are feeling froggy and want to change the pump and strainer anyway, I would suggest a Walbro 255HP, since you are on spray. They are a little loud for the avg. in-tank fuel pump, but nothing like my A1000 that sits inside the race car.
