2000 GT 4.6 into 97 Cougar

I have the 2000 GT engine sitting in the garage. I plan on using the 2000 EEC, COPS and everything that I posibly can from the 2000. The future plans call for a supercharger.
My question for anyone is, the 1997 is a return style fuel system while the 2000 is a returnless style. What would it take to convert a return style fuel system to a returnless style? I have the eec, fuel rails and all that, I am just not real sure on the pump side of things, would a stock fuel pump work, or preferably, is there an aftermarket fuel pump that will bolt into the tank and be a returnless style?
Thanks for any help.

After talking, and some more research, I am going to use the 97 EEC and keep the return style fuel system.
FYI, thanks for looking.

That's the best route Scott. I am blown and still using the Stock EEC with a chip, stock coil packs and return style fuel system on an 02 motor. Keep it simple
