    guessing it depends on your application, im on the st170 motor, standard, in a mk1, ive used the standard cosworth pump, relatively cheap to get.

    Re: injection fuel pump question

    most injection pumps have masses of reserve capacity, the biggest differences lay in the type and sizes of the pump/pipe fittings, unless radically modified just about any pump of a 2.0 multi point fuel injected motor will do of it physically fits, the early external bmw e30 325 pump is one thats commonly used and has more than enough capacity for even the most powerfull zetecs, sierra cosworth pumps will do equailly well, although your probably have to pay the "cosworth tax" even the pump from a lowly 2.0injection sierra will do

    A 2.8 capri fuel pump has plenty of capacity, have a look on ebay. I bought mine from Matt Lewis Racing IIRC.

    can you not use a low pressure pump from the standard tank into a swirl pot. then the high pressure injection pump from swirl pot to fuel rail.

    You can, but with a MK1/2 standard fuel tank there's no point. You're just increasing cost and complexity.

    Fit the sierra cosworth pump or even the complete cradle. Its fairly simple to do. Done this 2 weeks ago for my 4age installation. Used a inline filter to make it nice and simple. If you need pictures to help then let me know.

    In my escort van I fitted an intake pump with swirl pot integrated from a Citreon Saxo.

    I took it out for the 1st time this week and it works a treat.

    I cut out the original hole in the top of the tank then made a fixing ring to go over the top, then drill and fitted riv nuts into the top of the tank, using the original sealing washer screwed it all down tight.

    I'll find some pics out if you want me to ?

    I was unsure if it would keep up with it, but so far it seems ok, although it's not been far yet, but you can get an uprated high pressure version which i'm tempted to fit just in case.
