I believe the Dr Bean mod on the original fp is a fairly reliable solution. If your life depends on this, a new fp with DrBean's mod and a small milliage to make sure of its longevity would suffice.

the 990 will need a replacement fp to carry with you, with a filter set to change when needed. The fuel filters are not heavy to pick them up along the way, posted to your hotel. The pump could be squeezed in your luggage. Should run reliably for who knows how long. After that be prepared to replace on the road. Not too difficult but keeping the filters clean should lengthen fp longevity.

I am leaving in 11 days and won't have time to receive spares before I leave, but will definitely order when I return. Hopefully, with only 20,3?? miles, I won't have a problem on this trip. If I do, they can fix anything in Mexico, it may never be the same, but it will run!
