Hey thanks. I figured it was easier to just ask a few quick questions. Looks like I have some reading to do?

Ok, after reading those posts, I have a dumb question....
Does it make more sense to install the MSD 'BAP' or the ZL1 fuel pump? Both install and overall cost is what I'm asking. Even after I pulley down to 3.6 and get my CAI for the Maggie, I'll still only be pushing around 500 rwhp.

Thoughts.

ZL1 fuel pump with ADM FPCM is a better choice. Because the fuel pump will detect the fuel pressure drop and reacts to it. But BAP will react to the boost readings which may not means fuel pressure drop. Also BAP has a limited room to increase the fuel pressure.

Any idea what it costs to install a ZL1 fuel pump? How tough is the install? Need to drop the fuel tank? I have no idea what ADM FPCM stands for? Sorry. Fuel pump control module???

Thanks!

Yes. You have to drop the fuel tank to replace the fuel pump. I don't know how much it will cost you where you live. But where I live it cost me about $400. you can search the forum for how to replace the fuel pump.

Dont HAVE to drop the fuel tank to put a pump in. You can cut a hole in the floor under the rear seat and make an access door which isnt that big of a deal like some people make it out to be.

synergy I think you will be making more than 500rwhp with the pulley and intake maybe 500 on a mustang dyno but I think you might even get up over that on the mustang dyno on a dynojet I but you would 550ish or better

Yeah, I suppose you're right Phil. 550 rwhp kinda has a nice ring to it!! I gotta keep up with you and your darn LS3!!

Don't do it. Find a friend with a car lift. That makes it lots easier.

Dont do this why? Its not structural metal if sealed up properly there is no harm in doing this. I work in a body shop if you saw the way cars are fixed this is nothing.

Because he speaks of what he don't know. Like most of the people on this form. I can change my pump in 15min.

The ZL1 pump can be changed on jackstands in about 1-1-1/2" hours. The biggest pain in the ass is changing it with a full tank so make sure you are close to empty. Other than that it is not a difficult task.
