It's not that the boost-a-pumps are crap, we just dont like them b/c they run off a fuse, if that fuse blows while you're WOT, then you're focked :thumbsup: ...the GT pumps should flow enough to support you and your Whipple :D

Yes :thumbsup:

I'd go with the Ford GT pumps or Focus pumps. I currently have the focus pumps in my Cobra with the Whipple and I'm soon changing them out for the Ford GT pumps with upgraded lines etc...
Just make sure when you change out your pumps to get the FPDM modified to handle the extra load.

I had a BAP and it blew my pumps cause it couldn't supply the fuel I needed with the power I was making. BAP's are ok, until you need them on Max duty cycle then they loose there usefullness IMO.

Good luck :)

Focus pumps, dual lines out of the pumps into one line up to the rails - We have seen 700hp+ with no fuel pressure drop

I am Biased to the GT pumps myself, work great with flow as I upgraded my fuel system with the upcoming twin turbo setup.

I paid 230 or 240 i cant remember the exact number for the fuel pumps, but they are worth especially since you will need it for the whipple:D .
