Just put a good quality electric fuel pump in series with the existing pump. Use the electric if the mechanical fails. The plumbing is simple. Your local auto store has lots of choices, just remember to buy one with no more than 4 psi, otherwise you will overload the carb float and flood the engine. Actually you could have fuel pressure gauge, we use these on race cars to tell what is wrong, but that may be overkill. In any case make sure you have a really good fuel filter, the tanks on most A4s are very old and might have Jimmy Hoffa inside.
