Which power steering pump?

Ok.... some really quick rockauto.com research has shown me the following.. There are 4 pumps (or so) that seem to be available for Fords
1. Big metal round pump.
2. GM style teardrop.
3. Small aluminum plastic pump.
4. Heavy Duty (their term) pump.. looks like a combination of 1 and 3.

I'm currently running #1 in my 78 Cougar, after removing #3 with the 351W.


Any pros or cons for each one? Which is best for each type of application? (street, strip, auto x, etc etc etc).

I have nothing useful to add, but I'm interested in the comments.

I'd run #3.

Some people can break a cannon ball, in a sand box, with their bare hands.
