Why don't you try audiconnection.com, and give Bruce a call. He can hook 
you right up... The fuel filter is inline (in front of rear wheel well. 
The pump is in the tank. There are also 2 sizes of pumps, depending on 
which year V8. The later Pierburg is smaller and requires additional 
parts, but tends to be quieter than the earlier Bosch.
You should consider replacing the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel 
rail - I had one go 'partially' bad and it gave the same symptoms as yours.
