It is doable. You need to come up with some adaptor magic to get the fuel hoses and fittings to work together, as they are not all the same size. You would eliminate the "Y" in the return line as well. And I think you might need to change the electrical connector? (Not sure on that last bit.) And it may require a little creativity in how you attach it to the car.

The pressures and flow rates are comparable, and the new-style pump just takes 12V like the old one does. So if you can get it hooked up, it should work fine.
