I KNOW this has been asked many times, but I just can't seem to find a straight answer. Should I just buy a SVT Focus fuel pump for my '01 Bullitt, or should I go with the Ford GT supercar pump? What about any other options? I want the SVT Focus fuel pump due to the ease of installation (take the old one out and drop the new one in,) but will I run into any problems? I heard it doesn't supply enough fuel if you start driving fast? Don't recommend the Kenne Bell BAP because I really don't feel like having to cut my wires and do all this stuff where I might mess up, the same reason why some people are scared tapping into their oil pan when installing a Vortech.

The same I was gonna ask, what else do I need to make it work? I wanna make sure if I buy it, I don't have to buy something else.

get teh submersible gates fuel line, do pprv delete, cut wires from stock connector, put new connectors on, and mount the pump. i personally clip off the little mounting tab from the pprv and used it to hold the pump down.

get the gt pump. There really isnt anything that complicated to doing it. You simply remove the hose that comes on the pump, remove the pprv, trim the edges of the pump, drop it in the basket, cut 2 wires, crimp on female spade terminals, plug them in, run the whole 1ft piece of gates submersible fuel line from the pump to the hat or whatever using 2 hose clamps and youre all done.

you don't trim anything on the pump,you remove the pump assy from the basket in comes in to install in orig. basket. be sure to use a new stock gt sock,don't use the one that is on the pump because you have to fold it up to fit in basket which will cause issues.Drill a few holes(7/8 or so) in the front side of basket also

Hmm thats odd. I had to grind down the edges of the plastic on the top of the pump for mine to fit, also seems like many guides on the net also say this needs to be done, or trimmed with a razor blade.

"7. Cut a 45 on the corners of white plastic housing near electical connections so the fuel pump will fit into mustang canister properly."

Ah makes sense. I wonder whats up with the trimming thing. I could fit it in the basket but couldnt bolt the top part back on w/o the edges of the plastic hitting the circumference of the circle that the pump "goes in" *if i remember right*. Maybe some sort of variation in the pump or top parts?

The pprv thing is the white thing that looks like those bendy straws. Basically it's where the black wire is on the GT pump. Just don't reinstall it on the GT pump when you take it out of the car. A gates submersible fuel line is a fuel line from gates that is submersible :) I can't remember the part number 13097 or something maybe and yeah it goes on the new pump instead of the black wire thing
