Default Fuel plumbing for XP-360 FI engine

A question for anyone running a Superior XP-360 with the 'standard" fuel injection system (Precision Silver Hawk)--

I'm planning my fuel plumbing for my -7 now and can't find anything that tells me whether the Superior FI engine uses the the same hi pressure pump that Vans sells for their Lycomings or whether it requires some other pump? I would assume it's the same, but if anyone could confirm that I'd appreciate it.

Also, the way AI read the Superior website, it seems to say that the "Precision Silver Hawk" fuel injection system does not require a return line. Again, a real-world confirmation would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Ivan

Precision Silverhawk system does not require a return line. The standard Vans fuel boost pump (at one time they were an AFP pump and filter ***'y) should work fine.
