Welcome to my detailed overview of the BBK direct replacement fuel pump, available for your 2001 to 2004 V6, GT, and Mach 1, and all 2001 Cobras. So plain and simple, the BBK direct replacement fuel pump should appeal to the New Edge owners out there looking to replace a faulty or broken fuel pump on your '01 to '04 New Edge, or maybe for the guys out there looking for a bigger fuel pump to fuel a bigger build, such as a forced induction or maybe even your nitrous applications. Now, with that in mind, the BBK option is capable of cranking out 300 liters per hour for the capacity here, which is more than double that of the stock fuel pump. So needless to say, this thing can support some pretty big builds. Upwards of 500 wheels should be no issue at all for the BBK upgrade. Because this thing is complete, it is a turnkey option, expect to be spending a little bit more on the BBK when compared to a standalone fuel pump that you might find here at AM. Upwards of just north of $300 is what you can expect to spend for this particular unit. Install will get a soft three out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter from me, as the tank does need to come down. But I will have a little bit more detail on that later on. So why do you need to replace your fuel pump in the first place? We'll, like we already talked about, maybe it's on the way out or it's already failed on you. Therefore, you need to replace it to get the car up and running again. How do you know if your fuel pump is failing? Well, rough idle is usually a biggie, maybe a misfire under a load, or the care will just flat out not start. So if you've narrowed it down to the fuel pump in your New Edge, you've done some voltage tests, things like that, and you've determined the fuel pump, well, now it's time to replace it. Well, what if the factory fuel pump in your New Edge is working just fine? Well, then chances are you're looking to upgrade to support a bigger build. More power usually means more fuel, and that is the case here, and the factory fuel pump just cannot keep up when builds exceed a certain power level. Some options that are popular with these New Edge cars include the SVT Focus fuel pump, or maybe even a Walbro 255 pump, both of which I have seen a lot of guys use, but both of which are smaller than the BBK option that we have here. Again, 300 liters per hour is what this puppy is rated at. Now, sure, a fuel pump is simply one part of the fueling equation. You have lines, injectors, rails, filters, and more. But it really all starts with the pump. Because ultimately, if the injectors aren't getting enough fuel, under hard acceleration you can possibly encounter a lean situation. Despite the old adage, "Lean is mean," well, lean can also pop motors as well, and nobody wants that to happen. So long story short, guys, a good fuel system all starts with a good pump. But let's switch our focus back to the BBK option that we do have in this video, and complete is just the perfect way to sum this thing up. You're getting a new pump already buried inside the canister here, as you can see, plug-and-play wiring, a new top hat equipped with a gasket, mind you, and you're even getting a new float as well. So turnkey in just every sense of the word. Now, if I were you guys, I'd probably add a new filter into the equation as well. We do sell the Motorcraft OE replacements for $15 here on the site, or we can possibly even check out an aftermarket option if you'd like. Now, because this is a drop-in replacement for most '01 to '04 cars out there, expect no crazy modification, no wiring, or anything like that. Now, if you have a 1999 or 2000 New Edge, and you're feeling a little left out, well, don't, guys. BBK offers a nearly identical setup for you, same price, same capacity, and you can grab that on the site as well. Switching gears, let's get into the installation. As I mentioned briefly at the top of this video, I did go a soft three out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. We say the same thing on the product page, and anywhere from a few hours to a half a day, depending on your level of expertise. The hardest part of this install will be dropping the tank on your New Edge Mustang. Everything else is completely plug-and-play. Now, we're not going to go step by step. But instead, just a couple of things to consider, obviously, that tank needs to come down like we just mentioned. So therefore, expect to get the rear of the car up in the air slightly. Or if you have a lift, that will certainly be beneficial as well. You're not going to need a bunch of tools here for this one, guys, mainly a socket set, some pliers to help you with some of those lines. But everything else, again, because of the wiring that BBK includes is very simple, very much plug-and-play. At the end of the day, if you're not really confident with this one, you don't feel like messing with that tank or anything like that, your local shop should be able to bang this one out for you without issue. Wrapping things up, guys, the BBK option for just north of $300 will be a solid OE replacement or upgrade for those big power builds out there, and you can grab yours right here at americanmuscle.com.

01 mustang gt
Fits perfect, started right up, getting plenty of fuel now. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Easy installation, simple plug and play. Would also recommend as less fuel in the tank as possible or preferably emply.Helpful (0)

Does the job
My old fuel pump wasn't doing it for me, this BBK fuel pump does just the trick. Installation took longer than expected, it was a bit bigger than the OEM and had a bit of issues with connectors not clicking on. But overall, excellent and would recommend.Helpful (0)

Nice pump for easy replacement or upgrade
Installed this pump in my car because original pump whimped out.This was one of the easiest pump replacements I’ve ever done because this was a plug up and bolt in and you’re done install.I didn’t have to take any parts of the pump apart or put any parts of the pump together to install because it was all already done.Now it’s got enough fuel flow for even more upgrades without having to worry about fuel starvation.Plus I’ll keep the original pump and housing and if I ever need to change it again all I have to do is get a pump and rework the original parts and have it ready to drop in when the tank is dropped.Hopefully by the BBK will have just a pump to do that with by then for this model car.It did take me a little extra time to install because I took my time and cleaned everything up like new but you can easily do it in an afternoon.I gave 4 stars for performance gain because it made the car run again,not because I could feel a difference in felt power but I know with the increased flow that’s easily possible now.Helpful (0)

It is literally a direct replacement. You do NOT need to worry about any filters, the "sock" or whatever. Know that the tank drop is a pain. Take your time, it will be fine, and before you know it, you will zoom again. Horrible rhyme but hey, it is true! Pew Pew! :)Helpful (2)

If your fuel pump goes bad do not buy anything but this one, especially if you have some mods. I bought a $150 one online and nothing but problems. Fuel starvation above 4K rpms and cornering, plus inaccurate gauge reading. Plugged in the BBK unit and all is well. Runs awesome.Helpful (2)

Quick and Easy
Cheaper than the stock one which cost about $900 new. Works fine, you can feel a quick response when you gun it.Helpful (1)

So far so good. Only been a few days but I’ve done this twice before. I’ll update my review if anything changes. Word of advice, never ever buy the cheap replacement thinking you’ll save money.Helpful (4)

01 cobra install
Perfect fit and easy install. You’ve heard it before but I will repeat it. Don’t try and to drop the tank until your gauge is left of the “E” makes it much easier that way. Get the filler neck grommet too. You’ll need it. Also do your self a favor and do the fuel filter at the same time. Especially if you have the IRS. Only difficult part was getting the filler neck back into the tank with a new grommet it’s a tight fit but take your time and you’ll get it. A little silicone spray works here too.Helpful (7)

This pump fits right in place of the old stock pump. It makes the job extra simple. It definitely runs less than the stock pump and enables the performance gains when I'm ready. The best part is they threw in a couple of the clips for some of the lines that are likely to break.Helpful (4)
Can you run e85 with this pump
Yes, the BBK Direct Replacement Fuel Pump is a direct replacement for the stock fuel pump, which can run E85.
My original fuel pump had a fuel strainer on it. After receiving my BBK Direct Replacement Fuel Pump I noticed it did not come with one, nor does it look like it has a means to have one attached. Is one necessary or required? Should I be looking for one?
The BBK Direct Replacement Fuel Pump is an entire replacement, so it should have this strainer inside the pump itself.
Does this pump include any gaskets for the tank? If not. What is part number for the gaskets?
Hello! This BBK Direct Replacement Fuel Pump does come with a new tank gasket.
This part is listed as 01-04. I know some parts were switched mid year 2001, examples being the transmission and water pump pulley. There is another sending unit listed as 99-00. Was this another mid year switch, what is the difference, and is there a way I can be sure of which one to buy?
Hi, This Pump is a direct fit replacement for all 2001-2004. The fuel pump changed in the beginning of model year 2001.
The fuel level sensor went bad on my old pump and it caused my fuel gauge to stop working, does this pump have a fuel level sensor attached?
Yes, this BBK Direct Replacement Fuel Pump does come with a float and fuel level sensor installed.
We recommend checking with your tuner as they'll be able to advise what fuel pump would be best for your vehicle.
This fuel pump supports up to 800 Horsepower at the Flywheel.
This would be able to support a Procharged set up yes.
this replacement fuel pump will supports up to 800 horsepower at the Flywheel and should be perfect for your setup
The BBK Direct Replacement Fuel Pump will work in conjunction with a Kenne Bell Boost-A-Pump.
This BBK fuel pump is a great option for stock or more heavily modded mustangs. It is a direct fit replacement and has a considerably higher flow rate than OEM making it suitable for future modifications.
Hello, the BBK Direct Replacement Fuel Pump can support up to 500HP.
Hey GT5, Well for starters the 03 cobra supercharger will not fit the v6. It is a Root style supercharger which means it bolts onto the intake manifold portion of the motor (because it is technically an intake manifold) so with the cobra being a 4valve 4.6L motor and the v6 being a 3.8 (3.9 if its an 04) they have a completely different engine not allowing that specific supercharger to bolt on. But there are super chargers for your mustang you would just have to make sure that they are labeled for the v6 so that it will bolt on perfectly
Hello! I believe you may have misread the description, this fuel pump is compatible with all mustangs from 2001 to 2004, excluding the 2003 and 2004 cobra. This item is not compatible with the cobra from 2003 and 2004.
The BBK Fuel Pump is a direct replacement for the factory one. A tune will not make much of a difference with a stock equivalent pump.
