Not only that you'll have to pop the hatch to fill your car up. The fuel door then is pointless.

doing a return style using the stock tank is possible but IIRC the way the pump usually fits and other things you have less tank volume then if you went with a fuel cell?

not sure the return fuel systems are out of my knowledge base on the focus. Thus the reason for the time being I only want to go as far as a stock pump and a BAP will get me. when I get around to my turbo....

That's absolutely not the case, plenty have done north of 400 without a return fuel system or boost-a-pump.

Ford GT pump for best results or a Duratec pump for slightly less work.

EDIT; here is a Ford GT pump example on 91 octane;

EDIT; another with SVT Focus fuel pump being used on 93;

you can move the pump tp the back of the tank and use foam to keep it there. the issue is on wot pulls with 1/4 tank the gas will shoot all the way to the back of the tank. wich in turn gets fuel cut off

Green top pump will do, walbro is 255.

Issue is also in curves, I had good results with twin walbros in place, kept the pick ups close to the bottom, never liked foam. Either way I will never WOT under 1/3 of a tank, during regular use ran the tank almost empty, keeping an eye in fuel pressure of course.
