Did the ESS kit include/suggest upgrading the fuel pump anyway?

What is the age of your fuel filter?

Pop the bottom rear seat and see if the soundproofing on the passenger side has ever been cut. If not, your pump is original.

OEM pump is only about $120 from bmaparts.com.
No fuel pump upgrade available or recommended by ESS.

Fuel Filter is only a couple of years old with at most 10K miles.

Pump is original since I was the second owner at 12K miles
