It might be worth trying to understand why you are getting vapour lock issues with your current set up? If the HP pump is cavitating and screaming it suggests that you may have air trapped in the swirl pot, something it is designed to prevent. Have you checked the connections are the right way round as it would be easy to have them swapped from the swirl pot to the fuel tank. Does your fuel tank get pressurised in hot weather?
Just a few thoughts....
