Don't know. Just wondering why you would put a V8 fuel pump on a (supposedly stock?) V6.
I don't think there would be any advantage unless the engine/ECU is modified (injectors, fuel regulator, cam etc.) to accept the extra flow/pressure.

While I haven't seen it done, I don't see why it wouldn't.. VT-VZ fuel tank is the same piece irrespective of model (except of course for the extended range tank of course), so a V8 pump should drop in.. As long as it flows the same or better than the standard pump, it should work fine.

He didnt ask weather it fitted, he asked weather it would work. Yes it will fit, no it wont work. Gen series has pressure regulator valve in the tank unit to maintain 58psi to the fuel system.
