If it has less than 50,000 miles on it or is less than 5 years old.

Yes, I have picked up fuel pumps from the junkyard, have a few on hand. These make great on-hand replacements for a low-usage car for example. Regardless, I would definitely keep it if it is working. The factory pump can easily go to 150k. If you ever need one of these spares because yours dies, drop it in to keep the car going, then decide if you want to buy a new one or drive it until the replacement fails.

Sadly, my local Pic-N-Pulls no longer seem to be stocking P80s. A year ago they might have had six or eight on the lots. Currently maybe one.

A little bit frustrating because one of the main reasons I switched from 940s to P80s was junkyards parts availability.
