Default Fuel Pressure

Is the boost pump the AFP boost pump type setup? Are the fuel lines run as depicted in the plans? I'm asking because our recently acquired 8 (built around the same time) had a non-standard boost pump/fuel line/check valve system that produced weird pump pressure readouts and had other operational characteristics that I didn't like at all. In doing some research, I discovered that there was apparently a magazine article published in the early 2000s that described this "low cost" alternative and several were built and flown this way. Once we got ours home, it all came out and the airplane is now plumbed and pumped according to plans. All is good. I know it's a long shot but thought I'd mention it.
