Replace Fuel Pump with SVT Focus Fuel Pump - 06-29-2011

I recently got an SVT Focus Fuel Pump from a member here that I will be installing in my 06 Mustang. This is just the pump and will therefor be going into an extra stock fuel hat assembly I have.

Before attempting this swap I want to make sure I know what I'm doing so I don't screw something up.


How does one go about removing the old fuel pump from the fuel hat assembly? What needs to be removed or kept on the Focus fuel pump. I did some google searches but came up with nothing but info for doing this in a SN95 Mustang or how to do this change using an after market fuel hat assembly.


Anyone have some info for me?


Thanks,

Is the SVT focus pump that much better than our stock one? Is it better than the GT40 pump?

Edit: I just read online that the SVT focus pump can supply a little over 400 rwhp. 264lph (60-70 gallons/hr at 80-100psi)
GT 40 pump is rated at 300 liters per hour at 17 volts

Okay, so is the SVT pump just a direct drop in where as the GT40 pump needs to be rewired?

http://stangplanet.com/forum/s197-fo...fuel-pump.html

another forum a member stated "Don't forget that you are supposed to drill out the inlet hole, at the check valve to 11/32, to enable more flow. My Procharger installation manual states this." Apparently that isn't necessary though, it'll still flow more than ours without drilling the hole.

Yes, the SVT pump is supposed to be a direct replacement. I hadn't heard about the GT40 pump needing modifications, but just that the SVT pump was cheaper and a better performer than stock.

I guess there isn't any specific write-up on how to remove and replace just the pump from the hat, so I'll have to do some "experimenting" on my previous pump and hat (glad I saved it, even when it didn't work). I just didn't want to damage anything in the R&R of my current working system.

Just an FYI, but the Focus pump ran just fine on my blue car with the Procharger, even at 450RWHP. It's a stout little pump.

So rather than going with the boost a pump kit, I could pick up this from RockAuto.com which lists it as the fuel pump for the SVT Focus?

Then install this pump in place of my stock pump without anything else?

Waiting for further confirmation. This thread has my interest. I tried going with the Ford GT pump ("not" Ford Mustang GT) and it wasn't going to work. I've been looking for BAPs on eBay and elsewhere... but this looks good if things actually swap in without any fuss.

Well, now I think I'm even more unsure of what I should do. I just tried finding out how much the stock fuel pump flows and I couldn't find it so far. I saw one person say it was 155lph (255lph with the boost a pump) and another site that said the stock pump flowed 255lph.

I have a mafia extender now and would like to address my fuel delivery issues before getting an emissions friendly retune.
