IIRC, we replaced ours twice and it's been updated by factory several times. First time car went into limp mode. 2nd time we changed preemptively when service manual showed newer version(S). Same with oil pump, never had an issue but changed it out preemptively.

'09 S manual - Over 30,000 track miles, with less than ideal throttle matches along the way , and running strong. Motor and tran on this car have been rock solid.

I would presume that since the 2.9l base engines are not DFI, that fuel pump issues don't plague those cars vs the 3.4 "S" model engines that are DFI.

I think thatís a safe assumption but I donít have any experience with the 2.9s. I think Ď09s had most issues being first gen pumps. The early Interseries Caymans weíre running a fuel additive to prevent failures. But issues were solved soon after with updated pumps.
