Back to the point, I think the mk3 pump sits somewhere in size between the mk4 unit above and the Scirocco/Polo unit. It's on my list of "things to get if i can get it cheap/free".

I had my 20vt set up like this for a week, it didn't like it at all. It would starve the pump of fuel when cornering, accelerating, braking, going up/down hills. This causes the engine to run extremely lean which is really not good for your engine.
I put the lift pump from an injection car in and it was much better, but still struggled on long bends and roundabouts. Put a large (about 2 liter) swirl pot in and it now never starves the main pump.
