This is what i did for an EFI pump on me Mk5 cortina, or at least i had it fitted for me  
there's a swirl pot inside on the other end of the large bore pipe (and a magnet to catch the rust)

I do know people who have used the origional pickup pipe (but replaced it with a larger bore pipe braized into the sender plate) but they have fuel starvation under 1/4 of a tank on cornering

Hello,

I don't know this for sure, but some say the Sierra estate tank fits the Cortina with few or none modifications.
Could be worth a try.  There's plenty of FI Sierras around.
