That is odd. I believe cars will run hotter when the mixture is too lean. But with excess fuel pressure, I would think your car would have been running too rich. You may have a separate problem with the cooling system.

As Gordon wrote, a low pressure, cylindrical, Facet pump is the way to go. The cube-shaped Facet pumps will work OK (again, use a low pressure model), but I believe the cylindrical pumps are higher quality for not a lot more money.
