That is some good information.  I wonder why it took Ford so long to do the same.  You can access the fuel pump in my 1997 Escort by lifting the bottom back seat.   O0
The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

Here is another picture of the Easy Fuel Pump Install project after it was completed.
