Fuel pump - which one?

I'll have the bed off the rig next week and, while off, I'm going to do a fuel pump (01, 7.3, cc/sb). I'm having no issues but figured I'd take advantage of not having to drop the tank to get at it.

Which one do I want? Stock Ford replacement or should I bump it up a notch?

Experiences?

thanks folks!!

Are you just looking for a supply pump or a fuel filter, air separation system? We went with a FASS setup for our truck but it all depends on your budget. They have a nice supply pump that will do the trick and cost 1/3 as much.

You shouldn't have a pump in the tank. All the ones I've seen have been on the framerail so you would'nt need to drop the tank to change the pump.

What you do need to plan for is the hutch and harpoon mods, the "in-tank" mods. While the bed is off. Will reduce air going into the fuel system and allow you to fill your tank quicker and fuller.
