Hey, my fuel pump is shot, so I was wondering what pump should I get? And is there any kind of relay or inline fuse to the fuel pump? Thanks for your time.

Several other people on this board have suggested this Walbro 255lph hi-pressure pump: http://www.jdsperformance.com/index.asp?...&fcmd=item It's designed specifically for 5.0's, but I've heard nothign but good reviews from the other guys about it(except for a few problems regarding the installation and leaking of the seals, but i'm sure those were just flukes that could happen with any pump). I actually just got my pump in the mail this tuesday and will be installing it two weekends from now. One extra thing you'd have to get if you decide on this pump is a larger bracket-to-tank seal (it comes with one for a 5.0 that's only abotu 2 1/2" wide, when you need one that's something like 4 1/2" or so)

The fuel pump relay is one of five in the Integrated Relay Control Module (ICRM) which is the big black box on the front of the passenger side strut tower.
