Fuel pump replacements

What fuel pump do y'all recommend? Can I upgrade and it still run good? I have just basic bolt ons now. Intake, exhaust, gears. Should I just do a stock replacement or go ahead and upgrade for when I supercharge it?

I just replaced mine today. I just went with a stock replacement. I got the whole assembly so I skipped out on the svt focus pump. No need for that unless you plan an going FI in the near future.

I would put in a single Ford GT pump. I run twin Ford GT pumps in a Fore fuel hat with dual FPDM and 10ga wiring.

Would that be enough for when I put a kenne bell on it?

You can use a single GT supercar pump and a Kenne Bell BAP and get to the 475-500 rwhp safely. Any thing really over 500rwhp I would recommend twin pumps.

Did you have an issue with pump depth? I had to trim my fuel hose from the hat to the pump and move the pumps as far toward the top of the hat as possible and even then had to beat the tank down slightly. Other than that the fore hat is a very nice peice and flows a ton of fuel with dual fpdm/wire upgrade/8an lines to rails

And to OP
Walbro makes a nice pump replacement for returnless setups now. Just sold my old pump but it was a walbro tu229hp. Made 425rwhp safely. Added a BAP to safely make 450. Not sure what it would have held up to but i went dual pump to crank boost up high

Did you use the GT fuel tank? I think Mzilla has a cobra tank, I thought the Fore fuel hat was supposed to be a direct swap on a GT without any modification to the tank?

Yea i have a gt tank that i baffled myself. The fore hat should be a direct swap, which is why i had asked if he had any issues with his swap. No difference in tank depth from gt to cobra tanks though. Done plenty of swaps from cobra pump hats into gt tanks as well as cobra tank swaps and no difference besides baffling. I just figure maybe fore fuel hose was cut slightly longer for smaller pumps than the supercar pumps

No adjustability of pump height. Your pumps are stationary where they are because of the design. With mine i was able to add or subtract amount of hose between the hat and pump, which in my case had to cut as much out as possble and move the pump as close to the hat as it could go. Looks like that block is too deep and wouldnt allow my pumps to sit high enough. Obviously thats just going by looks though

Looks like you stayed returnless though... What kind of power did you make? And are you running dual fpdm or single modded?

You can adjust the pump height about a half inch in the hat. I run twin GT pumps with dual FPDM 10 ga wiring 8 an line 60lb injectors .I am currently making 587rwhp pulling it to 7400rpm. My next project is to add a water/meth kit so I can have a safe 600+ on pump gas.

Sounds exactly like my setup. Made 576 on mine with a very conservative base tune for 91 right now. Probably going next week to get a final tune for 93. Had some BOV and IAC issues that i had to take care of
