Can I just change or clean the pumps screen and the pump itself ...and hope for the best?
I've been researching this, too, and here are my findings.
Is your car stock? If so, the OEM fuel pump will do just fine, and you'll save a few bucks, too. The stock fuel pump, I believe, pumps about 40 gallons per hour, which should be good for up to around 300 bhp.
If you need more than that, I've heard good things about TRE Performance'* fuel pumps, which go up to around 65-70 gallons per hour (about 40% stronger), which TRE says will fuel an engine up to 600 bhp.
Don't forget to replace your fuel filter afterwards. That new pump could pull up some crud that the old one was too weak to grab.
