in tank fuel pump question for the tuning gurus
 
i'm going to be procharging my focus svt and i will be running 60 lbhr injectors.
i currently have a kenne bell boosta pump but i'm a bit leery of cutting and splicing wires (not that i wont if i have to) ive been looking at dropping in one of those 255 lph in tank fuel pumps. but ive got a question that i hope can be answered. the main one being if this will supply enough fuel for the car to run properly. i'll be using 91-93 octane fuel (i ahve both available with or without ethanol mixed in, guess i'm lucky) and at most it'll be pushing about 16 psi at redline. i do autocross and lapping days with the car and it's currently my daily. i'm trying to get the most reliable setup possible and ithink this may be a better option than wiring in a boosta pump.

A 255 pump will not drop into the factory canister.

The stock pump may do whats needed by it self with a ProC , the B-A-P added will be plenty if the sock and filter is up to par

thanks guys that was the info i was looking for. at least i know i dont ahve to upgrade the fuel pump. and the stock rail should more than suffice correct? or should i look at picking up a different rail to help the injectors out a bit.

ive got two more things to get. a new serpbelt (that's big enough) and a diablo mafia and i'll be ready to start tuning this. oh and a single gauge pod. for my wideband. i'm going oldschool wit hteh boost and knock gauges and simple drilling small holes on the dash skin.

Stock fuel rail is fine. IIRC, you will need a 101.5' belt. Do double check though.

sure thing mike. oh and a found a dual pillar pod instead of a triple for 60 bucks on the board here. score!

may ahve to change the title soon, lol.
