Re: stock fuel pump

The stock pump should be decent up to 240-250ish rwhp.

Yes, roughly, in a boosted app. In a nitrous app it will support a little more.

The stock one is roughly 150lph out of the bucket assembly. The Focus pump is about 225lph out of the bucket assembly (there are flow losses from the aspirator and bucket assembly, thats why you don't see 300lph).

Details on your upgrade would also help us providing accurate answers.

Re: stock fuel pump

^ In that case I would for sure upgrade that fuel pump. Even if you're going to run a minimum amount of boost at first I think it would be a good idea.
Think of it like an insurance. It's better to spend $160 or whatever it is for the pump of your choice then to spend 3K on a blown motor.

Post up some pics of the tt set up. congrats.

Ok, so the focus fuel pump is good for 255lph. VMP lists a Ford Returnless pump that will run 310lph. What is this pump out of? Is this the Focus pump at is would be rated outside the bucket or what?

Re: stock fuel pump

The pump that VMP sells wil be just fine. It's the 255 lph pump in the bucket. If it's rated out of the bucket, it's 310 lph, in the bucket it's 255 lph.

If your going twins, I wouldn't think there would be a question of upgrading the pump. It's like $110 and well worth it. That's less than you can get for a brand new stock pump most anywhere else.

Re: stock fuel pump

Ok, last question. What year Focus uses that pump? I can probably get it cheaper through work, since I can buy parts at cost. Also, is it for the SVT focus or just the base model?

Thanks.

Re: stock fuel pump

It's the SVT focus pump, and any year they made the SVT focus is fine I believe...

Re: stock fuel pump

I believe it's the same part number as on Justin's site, because mine said "Ford" on it.
