Our cars fuel pressure is set by the pressure regulator in the engine
compartment, not by the pump. Our stock pumps will put out over 60 psi
Most FI cars are this way up until the mid 90's, when some manufacturer
came up with a way to regulate the fuel pressure at the tank. this
eliminated the need for a return fuel line from the engine compartment.
These cars typically have the fuel pump inside the tank, and the
regulator is mounted on the top or very near the tank. 
What you want is a pump that is mounted on the frame rail. This will be
FI cars/trucks from back in the '80's. 
BTW, our pumps are still available for reasonable prices, but you just
have to look for them. They are on Ebay all the time, and some people
here on the list I think even have a stock of a few. I am just using the
Ranger pump, because it is what a friend had on the shelf when he towed
me off the highway with a dead pump.
