Ford did not use a returnless fuel system in the older 5.0 Mustangs. They use a pressure regulator at the end of the fuel rail and a return line after that to return excess fuel back to the tank. They also had two different set-ups. One used just a high pressure in-tank pump and the other used a low pressure in-tank pump with a high pressure external pump mounted along the frame in the pressure line before the fuel pump. Both systems used a return line back to the fuel tank. See attached pictures of fuel pumps.

And to the guy that said a 199x - 200x Mustang can't handle a 5.4, They're wrong. Theres an issure of HOTROD magazine as well as the 1994 10L Boss Produced by SVT Team *only 10 in the world exsist*, (In which theres a 429 CID Engine) in each Mustang.. Check out
http://www.svt.ford.com/flash/index.html
go to concept cars and check out the 10L boss... They did that without cutting and it fits right in, nothing needed to be moved around...


I didnt say it wouldnt fit, the 5.4's just look too tall, It seemed to me that a factory mustang would have to have a cowl hood or a hood scoop, and now that I think about it, MMFF did this swap, Frightning i think, where they put a blown 5.4 in a 86? out of a lightning, and I believe they had a 4" cowl hool and had to chop it so the hood would shut..I also believe they used a C-4 behind it, I cant remember all the details, but standing beside a 5.4 youd think the same I did..

I am not sure about a 2000 cobra but my 2003 cobra uses a dual intake fuel pump set up and it is a returnless system. You can not use your stock 86 fuel bump because it pushes to much pressure without a way to return it. The new system bypasses the fuel in the tank instead of going all the way to the motor and then bypassing all the way back to the tank. Hope that helps
