turbo fueling

I am looking into going FI with a turbo. The goal is 300whp, and I'm willing to work my way up. What, if any, mods do i need to do with the stock fuel system? I know I'll have to get a tune, injectors, and run a higher octane....what else?

the focus is a returnless system. some have used the evap lines and tuned that whole system out so they can use the lines for a return style set up, check the link that focuzed1 added in the second post
