Well I've already priced a couple of fuel pumps, and seems they are between $200-$250.

Have you looked in a manual or online at what it takes to do this yourself? You and one more can do this in a couple hours fairly easily.

If you do tackle it yourself its not a horribly hard job...just have a free afternoon. If you get a chance im sure you can even find a vid or writeup online on the process...

Motorcraft would be my choice. Factory is best IMO.

Your fuel tank is behind the axel. It's very easy to drop and swap out fuel pumps on. I've done these on the ground backed up on ramps in the rain. Lol back when I was a mechanic.

You can get an airtex pump from advance auto. They are actually produced by walbro (at least. That model pump) drop tank, remove pump basket, take top off basket, swap pump, reinstall. Or you can get the entire basket assembly but cheaper to get just the pump. Cheaper than oem and its a walbro so good quality. Ive installed probably near 50 of these through my shop and never had one fail.

Or if you are looking to run more power later down the road walbro makes a 292lph pump now too that is a drop in with basket. Yes it is made for the returnless style. When i bought mine it was pretty expensive but im sure price went down since it first came out

Can i join the ASE ball swinging club too?

Svt focus or ford gt pumps are great pumps. But sometimes hard to find and some dont feel comfortable doing the wiring change or having issues with the feed hose popping off if you dont use gates submersible hose and nice clamps. It is nice to delete that crappy relief valve though. My walbro hp292 didnt have one there so i just had to drop the bucket right in and go. That pump was good to 440 rwhp on my application.

I replaced my stock fuel pump with the 03 SVT Focus fuel pump past summer and I recommend you call Emerson at Last Call Racing to order it. Tell him that you specifically want that pump and he will get it from Ford for you.

There are a few write ups you should read before starting the job:

http://www.stangnet.com/mustang-foru...nstall.816809/

http://www.moddedmustangs.com/forums...p-install.html

While both write ups help, one thing I learned is there is an anti-siphon grid in our fuel tank filler necks and if your tank isn't low on fuel it can be tricky trying to drain it because you won't be able to siphon fuel thru the fuel door. My tank was full when my pump died and I lowered it using two floor jacks for balance before I could get to the top of the tank and pump the fuel out.

You will see in the write ups a photo of the SVT pump and instructions to open the stock Mustang pump housing and swap out the pumps rather than removing the housing from the tank altogether. The SVT pump will plug right in if you line it up correctly so I recommend taking photos of the stock one as you gain access so you can reference the positioning on the fly.
