Are you running larger injectors already? The stock pump is good for at least 42 lb./hour injectors.

To check your fuel delivery system, you need to hook a scanner up so you can observe fuel rail pressure... should be about 39 PSI.

I would check the "stupid things". In particular I would check to see if either a MAF or O2 or sensor or plug wire has chaffed or melted through and is up against something, or if a silcone connection is spit at the edge of an overtightened hose clamp, or a poor connection at a push on sensor connector, or a vaccum leak / blown off vaccum hose.... that kind of thing.

I'm running 50# injectors with everything else stock in my fuel system. My mechanical gauge shows around 40-42 psi fuel pressure at WOT........ thats making 305whp.

Try checking the small things like rod suggested, like your filter.
