HPFP.

The common consensus is to start with a Cobb AP and high pressure fuel pump internals. Both will help you get more performance from future mods and help prevent ZZB.

I usually recommend:
Stage 1:
Cobb AP
SRI/TIP
HPFP upgrade - Autotech Internals or CPe full pump replacement

Stage 2:
Full Downpipe or Downpipe/Test Pipe combo
TMIC or FMIC
One Step colder plugs.
BPV
CBE
Pro-Tune

Suspension:
RSB
Coils or Springs, Shocks and Struts.
Tires
Wheels
Brake Pads and Rotors
SS brake lines
Better brake fluid, ex: ATE Super Blue

Shifting:
RMM
SSP and Shifter bushings.
Full short shifter replacement
Tranny fluid: Motorcraft XT-M5-QS
Shift knob

Appearance options:
Tint
Window Visors, OEM or BaysonR
Lip kits
AutoExe Front Bumper or Garage Vary grill insert
Hella Horns
Lug nuts

The 1 doesn't count. He doesn't know much about the MS3 DISI engine and the fuel pressure dropping off when you do mods.

The hpfp doesn't make power itself it just keeps fuel pressure in the safe range as you add other mods and increase you power. As you add hp the fuel system gets taxed and fuel pressure decreases. HPFP upgrade keeps the pressure high. With the upgraded fp internals you can make use of your ap and increase boost beyond 17 psi without fear of your fuel pressure dropping and damaging your engine.

Get the HPFP before the FMIC.

Now it's 5 to 1. :cheesy:

yes I do, and I do know the HPFP is required before doing any extensive mods like more boost, downpipe, fmic, any of the such.

I just wanted to say fmic.

It also depends on if he is a Gen1 or Gen2. because gen1's can take better to mods without HPFP right away without losing pressure so drastically. I've known a few practically fully bolted gen1's without em.

LOL, chill out. Were those gen 1's pushing more than 17 psi? Most likely not! FP drops pretty fast when any MS3 turns the boost up.
