Ok.. whenever I get started doing the 5.0 Swap.. what fuel pump can I use? Is it an inline electric? mechanical? I haven't the slightest clue? Its a Ford 5.0 V8 EFI. Thanks

You need a electric fuel pump with at least 88 liters per hour rating and 45psi for the ford efi. Right now I have a holley pro-jection inline pump that is 45psi and 255lph. I'm not sure if I'm going to use it or not, there's a big debate over the inline pump or intank pump. The intank ones are supposed to be more reliable because they are cooled by the fuel surrounding them. My jeep builder friend is trying to convince me to stay with the inline one because it can be changed easily if it breaks. Remember you have to use special EFI hose and clamps with the high pressure side.

Where do I buy all this [censored]? Will this stuff just fit into my current CJ7 fuel system?

i think i heard something about a gm intake fuel pump because it is so small. The intakes will run cooler because of being in the fuel but changing them can be a B!tch!!!!!

Can someone please bring me a hammer my 33's just ate my fender again. Damn i need more lift.

Inside, I'm running and have been running since I started it a chrysler pump from a cherokee and it works fine. My ford service manual says the 5.0 engine needs 39 lbs of fuel pressure to work properly, any more pressure with stock injectors and your wasting gas. Hope this helps. Later.
