Note: Proper installation is the responsibility of the customer. Improper or incomplete installation could result in poor performance, related component damage, potential severe engine damage, vehicle fire, and will void your warranty. If you do not feel comfortable installing these parts, we recommend having the installation performed by a professional mechanic.
Description: This in-tank fuel pump replaces the factory pump and has an increased flow of 255 liters/hour (67 gph). This in-tank upgrade pump is ideal for supporting performance improvements that require higher fuel pressure than stock, such as a supercharger, turbocharger, or direct port nitrous system, etc. This pump replaces your original pump exactly and includes all necessary hardware for an easy installation:
Remember: When working on your vehicle, especially when oil or fuel is present, always work in a well - ventilated area. Keep all sparks, open flames, or other sources of ignition away from the work area. Failure to do so could result in a fire or explosion causing vehicle or property damage, personal injury, and/or death.
Before Beginning: This installation can be accomplished using common tools and procedures. However, you should have a basic knowledge of automotive repair and modification and be familiar with and comfortable with working on your vehicle. If you do not feel comfortable working on your vehicle, it is recommended to have the installation completed by a professional mechanic. Using a factory service manual for your vehicle for reference is helpful.
Note: Steps shown in these instructions are intended as a general guideline only. If you are not an experienced mechanic, you should have a copy of your service manual on hand. The installation procedure for replacing your factory fuel pump is covered in full detail in your factory service manual.

(Note: This rotary fuel injection pump will not work on carbureted fuel systems. It is for electronic fuel injection only.) (Note: The word “bracket” used throughout these instructions refers to the fuel pump mounting bracket and fuel level sender assembly.)
1. Make sure the engine is cool and the vehicle is on level ground. Set the parking brake.
2. Remove the negative (ground) cable from the battery and position it so that it cannot make a connection to the battery during the fuel pump installation procedure.
3. Relieve fuel system pressure by using a pressure gauge tool, Ford Service tool # T80L-9974-B or equivalent. Connect the pressure gauge to the Schrader valve located on the engine fuel rail. Slowly open the pressure gauge valve and drain the fuel into a suitable container to relieve the fuel system pressure (This procedure is necessary since the fuel system can retain gasoline under pressure for a considerable period of time. Opening a pressurized line could spray fuel, creating a risk of fire or personal injury.)
4. Drain the fuel tank. Use an OSHA-approved gasoline transfer pump, and remove as much fuel as possible through the fuel tank filler neck. Store the fuel in approved safety containers only.
5. Lift and safely support the vehicle with approved safety stands with enough height to gain clearance to remove the fuel tank. If lifting only the rear of the vehicle, remember to block the front wheels.
6. Once the vehicle is lifted and supported, an alternate method of fuel removal may be implemented. Determine which line is the fuel return line going back to the fuel tank (See Fig. 1). Trace the return line back from the injectors and remove it from the bracket. Securely attach a hose to the exposed fuel return tube leading into the tank, and draw the remaining fuel out and into an approved container. (Note: Regardless of the method used to remove fuel from the tank, it is important to remove as much fuel as possible before removing the tank. This is required to help prevent fuel spillage, and injury from excessive weight while removing the tank).
