I just wanted everyone to know this. Perhaps it will help prevent what happened to me. If you are running a 5.0, with a stock fuel tank, and fuel pump (regular pressure or high pressure), take note of how the fuel pump fits in between the cage its held in. Most of them have a little play. That play, will allow vibration and over time your fuel pump will be dead. I have 500 miles in my car and mine went dead last night. Well I warrantee'd the old and got a new High Pressure pump. It took about 1 hour and a friend to do that job. This time I used an old heater hose cut in half, and I slipped in a piece on either side of the pump. It's wedged in pretty good now and tight. The pump now sounds louder, and a lot cleaner. Don't get stuck in the middle of nowhere like I did :D
