SVO: Fuel pumps and tanks

I plan to pick up at least a 155 lph in-tank pump, 190 if funds allow. I
know the Motorsport stuff is good, but there are a lot of other
manufacturers out there. Does anyone have any advice on what brands to
stay away from or had good luck with any particular brand. I'm on a tight
budget (still have to find a used tank) so the cheaper the better, but I
don't want to have to do the work again due to poor quality parts!
Also, what is the capacity of the an '86 fuel tank. Seems like I never
put more than 13 gallons in mine when the needle is below "e". I've got
a line on a '90 2.3 tank to replace my leaking SVO tank, but the capacity
according to the manuals I've read says that it's a 15.4 gallon tank.
My question is...If I install the new pump in the '90 tank, will I have
to move over the fuel level sending unit/arm assembly from my 86 or will
the newer sender assembly work? I have not seen any of the parts off of
the cars, so I'm trying to gather as much info as possible to make the
swap go smoothly.
