Round abouts what are the gasoline guys replacing them at?
What are they replacing them with?

Stock Fuel Pump is usually maxing out at 300-350HP, those gains I belive you will still need the Kenny Bell Boost A Pump. Think over 250HP to 350HP will require the boost-a-pump. Over 350 the systems get converted over to return fuel system (seams like Mustang Fuel system / pump is what is used).

what year? i beleive the 03-04's use different fuel pumps, IIRC. plus, ur running e85, right??

Not to threadjack, but what other options is there besides a return system once you max out the stock pump+BAP?

I know this horse has been beat to death, but some people believe the SVT fuel pump is rated higher than the Zetec. I don't, I sure they're the same damn thing. I would say that for any NA build that the stock fuel pump is going to be fine.

Kinda curious myself. I'll be needing to know this. Posted via FF Mobile

well, after return style, you shouldn[t need to go higher. after that, a custom setup will be required.
as for the pumps, i'm pretty sure they changed them between the 00-04 models. i do think that the 03-04's are all svt's, but the 02's and under are not. its hard to base hp on a fuel pump if running e85. you need more fuel/molecule of o2. so you need to flow more fuel. if john is running 173/151 whp/wtq right now, i'd say thats more than fine on the stock pump. i'm not into tuning, but if you wanna multiply ratio's, i beleive e85 is at what 10.7:1? and 93 octane is at 14.7/1 = 1.374 x more fuel. = 237 whp on 93. now, i honestly have no idea if my logic is correct. but it seems correct to me! lol
but you definitely need more fuel.
The stock pump is good for a bit more than that, but not too much, and once again, i think its a different pump if you have an earlier year.

What I meant was are there any other pumps that can be used on a returnless style that will outflow the svt pump.

not that i'm aware of, most people just run a return style if ur getting towards 400 whp. i think roushturbozx3 did a dual walbro pump and made them fit in the stock canister, but i don't remember, ask him. he's pushing 600 whp

The 'update' pump is the same as the SVT, which is what I have being my stocker took a dump. But I was in that 'recall' group.
IIRC it's '02.5+ that all have the same pump.
Just curious because I'm running about 85% DC by the looks of it.
