More fuel doesn't make more power. To make more power you need more air(CAI or forced induction). With more air you might need more fuel. It depends on the capacity of the current injectors. Potentially it could make less power since the larger injector could cause a rich condition. I see no advantage if your car is not highly modified.

If your car needs more fuel you might also consider a rising rate FPR.

No advantages unless you are heavily modded and start to run lean (the you can even tweak your ECU for extra fuel). If ECU work doesn't do the trick, then you go with bigger injectors.

SCT chip. Generally, if someone has their car mod'd to the point of running low on fuel, they will already have an SCT installed.
