Cold Weather Package

So when I was sourcing a new IP for my build I checked NAPA prices (way out of my range even with our shop cost) and saw that it had a "cold weather package" and "w/o cold weather package" after searching the all knowing google and coming up with zero I figured I'd waste somebody else's time. What is this package and why is the IP different between the two? Is one made to handle fuel with more additive than the other pump? \_(ツ)_/

Never heard of that, either.

Marketing???

I don't think an IP will know if you overdose on additive, etc.

I'd agree with that but the difference in price is outrageous between the two

May be the Cold one is new instead of rebuilt?

Who knows unless you ask Napa corporate or the person that puts in the database.
I am not sure you will have the answer here, all we can do is speculate.

I hear ya. Only reason I ask is because I saw an rpo code in the GM list for a cold climate package too and if the pumps are different, being that I'm in MN and have seen 40 below with my 6.2 I'd like to know if it makes any bit of difference. Only thing I can assume is maybe a high idle or cold advance solenoid?

I'm not sure about the cold weather thing either, but I bought a brand new pump 3 years ago from diesel injection service in grand rapids mi. for $1050.00.

Not a bad price from what I've seen. Bought mine from badger for 320 or something a few months ago for a reman but the thought just kinda floated across my mind the other day so I figured I'd ask

Maybe call Fred at Badger and ask him about the cold weather IP?

I would have thought the cold climate package would just be bigger batteries and frost plug heater.
I do remember seeing that there were military mechanical IP's that were "Arctic". They had some internal parts that were made out of better/harder materials.

I'd have to think that NAPA sells very few IP's at that crazy price.

That might be the difference then. And there's a reason I didn't buy from them. Even at discounted procedure was crazy expensive. Then again you bring a truck to a shop and they're gonna buy from Napa before they look online somewhere so you're kinda stuck with the cost at that point
