255 pump will not work in the stock tank with out running a full return system. the stock returnless system pulses the fuel pump and that will mess up the gears in a standard pump

all that money you spent on the cams and head should have been spent on a good turbo

stock pump and bap will work for that. but like tim said you should have used the head money for a good turbo. a nice 48mm precision turbo costs like 575 bux

Yes you will need a custom tune and I can help you with that , stock fuel pump will get you to 250 with no issues as long as it is up to the load , meaning the pump , sock and filter is in good working order

Tom how do i actually go about getting a tune from u and what kind of money am i looking at...im gettin into almost ten grand for 250-300hp cause i don't think a motor with 150,000 can take much more than that and im not ready 2 build
