SVT Focus Fuel Pump

Ok, now that I know I am gonna be spraying I have ordered an SVT Focus fuel pump to replace the stocker in the Ranger. Do I just need to remove the pump from the sender and swap it with the one that it currently in my truck or is there something else I need to know before I drop the tank to change it.

dang! i didn't know this was a mod!!!! what would improvements be except more fuel to the stock injectors that push the same amount of fuel?

is there anything special that has to be done to make it work on the ranger? what is the stock ranger 4.0 fuel pump flow rate? will this work on my '97?

I don't know about your truck but if you have the stock injectors it isn't gonna be able to do much but I am planning on dropping in some 36 or 42 lb injectors as well. I may give the local rhino dealer a call and ask them if they would respray it due to the fact that I need to take the bed off of the truck to make repairs.

i have a flex fuel truck, so my injectors are 24lb i believe.... i'd be doing the upgrade more to support the nitrous wetshot im spraying ;o)

i actually purchased a focus pump about 8 months ago, and spliced it into my existing sending unit... i ended up having issues with the check valve in the sending unit immediately after installation, so I ended up purchasing a new sending unit/fuel pump. i want to try it again though, as i dont think the pump was responsible for the check valve problem.

This is extremely old, BUT, in case anyone is searching and wants some real test results, this is what the Focus pumps really do

And also, Walbro 255's can be had on Ebay all day long for less the 102 shipped.

The focus fuel pump will work fine with the stock sending unit. Make sure you re-install the plastic check valve in-line with the pump. When you get the sending unit out, you will have to basically cut the plastic fuel line that comes from the pump, to the check valve, then on to the nipple at the top of the sending unit where the fuel line connects externally. Go to NAPA and pick up some high pressure fuel injection line(rubber) and see if they have fuel pump hose clamps(they are solid and not slotted like standard hose clamps). You will have to re-use your existing pickup screen(aka sock) so be sure not to damage it when removing from the stock pump. Also be sure to replace your fuel filter at the same time.

Wont help you a bit.


I have 60# injectors and a 90mm lightning MAF, and you know all the other stuff... When you start doing serious power adders, then it is pretty much required. I do not think this pump will work with the 3.0, but Im not 100% sure.

Most likely, the fuel pump will work with the 3.0, the 2.3, and so on. I have installed Ford and Mitsu pumps in Honda's before, a pump is pretty much a pump with some minor rerouting required.

As Nick said though, there is no need for an aftermarket pump unless you are dealing with some form of forced induction be it nitrous, Blowed, or a turbo setup. Stock fuel pump will feed all a stock motor with every bolt on out there can eat just fine.

Yeah, I am spraying my truck and I just wanted the extra security of knowing I will have enough fuel getting into the system. The install went really easy. Put the truck up on a lift and just dropped the tank. Didn't run into any problems as far as that went. Wired it in and hooked all the lines up and cleaned up under the truck and away I went. Took me about 2 hours to do the whole project...with breaks to watch tv in between lol

The stock pump is capable of fully driving the bigger injectors in the flex fuel Ranger 3.0. Since the wet shot uses so little extra fuel, this might be a waste of time. I doubt you could ever GET to 25 on gasoline in a 3.0 without a blower -- the high rate delivery is only required for E85.

Not sure also of the physical configuration of the pump and what not in the flex fuel. The sending unit/pump and wiring are different on the flex-fuel. You might want to do some more research if you decide to do this.

Edit: Oh well, ignore that last part. I should have noted from your post about fitting a Focus pump previously...
