I had an interesting fuel pump morning on the way into work.  It hiccuped and then got extremely noisy.  So noisy that I could hear it easily inside the car....and outside it was insanely loud.  I said a prayer, turned the radio up, and just kept driving.  I was able to get to work.  When I rolled down my window to badge into the lot I noticed that everything sounded fine.  Once hear at ol UPS I shut the car off and restarted it.  It ran so I think I'm ok, but I will be changing the pump once the 20vt motor goes in so I've been thinking........

If the pump is on it's way out I want to go ahead and upgrade to what I need once the new motor is in.  My question is, I want to change to a 993 turbo pump (325lph) and wondered if it would affect running my stock 4kq?  Can the stock accumulator compensate for the extra flow, if any?  I say "if any" because I don't know the flow rate of the stock pump vs. the Porsche pump.  I would think so, but wanted to bounce it off you guys and see what you thought.
