Tons of Impreza people are running Walbro 255s off the stock ECU, I'd be very surprised if that setup was really problematic.
My friend's setup with dual Walbros sounds like a jet about to take off when only the ignition is on and the pumps running at 100%

For people running E85, they might be teetering on the edge of not having enough fuel pressure with a single pump if they are running higher boost levels. That's why we went with a dual setup pulling power off the battery. The car has a TD06 20G and Bosch 1000cc injectors with E85. My friend used a fancy spread sheet accounting for actual flow rate, IDC, and fuel pressure to realize a single Walbro wouldn't be enough.
