Question Booster Pump? Yey or Ney.....

Was looking into getting a nitrous set-up and came across a booster pump by ZEX, anyone have one installed? Does it just fit right in (not sure if their are metal lines or rubber lines underneath, although I could jack her up and check but would rather ask so I don't have to. :) Is it a waste and will it harm the original pump and if it were to go out would the stock pump still flow like normal or would all fuel flow be stopped? Basically I am looking for any info. on whether or not a booster pump is good or bad and are their others out their for a decent price? (may possibly be for my 2004 SVTF.)

The stock pump is very good at I beleive 255lph as guys that build up 2003 and 04 Cobras use Focus pumps for there high flow capabilities over there stock unit. Unless you plan on going nuts with F/I it wont do anything for you. My friends dads Cobra is 704??WHP on the stock pumps and injectors and with the Focus pumps and new injectors the power can go up a little higher as he loses fuel up top with stock pumps and injectors.
