For now I will have to stick with a direct fit pump.
But im thinkin I'm gunna cut the spot in the floor for easy access if I need to change a pump later on. Have any of you fox guys done that yet?.
I haven't don't it on a fox. But had done it on other vehicles. It's best you you have a little bit larger piece of sheet metal. then you can overlap it and just run some self tapping screws in.

Re: holley 190lph fuel pump

Well it isn't quite a direct drop in but close enough
to make it worth the savings..

This is what came in the box if you do this swap
you might want to get a new hose for it

New pump next to old (Walbro) it is smaller and has a smaller inlet
but the outlet is the same size

The pump in the Mustang braket. I trimmed the bottom of the carrier
so it would fit the way I wanted. Probably didn't need the ZipTies but
I wanted to make sure everything was secure and not going anywhere.


Overall it was an easy swap, no more difficult than a stock pump.
Took me about two hours. Biggest pain in the *** is putting the tank
back up by ones self, and mine was completely empty.
Sent the wife to the gas station to get 5 gallons of gas going to prime
the system and start here up..

doesnt look to bad. now we just need to see how good it holds pressure. do you have a fuel pressure gauge? i just would like to be certain it holds pressure well. if it does this maybe the ticket. im not positive i like putting the zip ties submerged in the gas tank or not. but that problem can be worked out easily enough.

Re: holley 190lph fuel pump

Holds the pressure perfectly according to my gauge.
When I was priming the system it shot straight to 60psi
quiker than the old Walbro 255lph that was in there.
I set my PSI@41 but my wide band has been on the
fritz, I think there is just a loose ground or power wire.
Just want to make sure it is good.

Took the car for a ride, topped it off with 93* Ethanol free
fuel (wife brought me 87* shell ****) and put in some
Octane boost just to be safe. It runs great idle was a bit rough
at first, but I think the plugs were
fouled a little from when the pump was only putting out 22psi.
It seems to pull just as hard as before, throtle response seems
better.

All in all it was well worth the little bit of extra trouble to save $40

Yeah I was going to use a worm clamp instead, but I get my ZipTies from
a guy at the shell refinery and they are suppose to be Fuel and Chemical
resistant....
