Upgrade Fuel System

I was thinking of upgrading my fuel system, but not quite sure what all that will entail. I'm thinking of going to the 60lb injectors and an upgraded fuel rail. I'm not sure what type of fuel rail to get to support the injectors. Also, what else would be involved with this upgrade? Would it even be a feasible upgrade outside of an actual build? Thanks in advance.

Update; just found out that I may also need to upgrade the fuel pump and adding a fuel pressure gauge.

Is your engine stock? not sure what the benefit would be,a stock engine can only use a certain amount of fuel. don't think more would be much of a benefit.

I have a stage II turbo setup along with a bolt on intake. Running 42lb injectors that came with the turbo setup, but internals are still stock. I'm not even sure if it would be a feasible upgrade outside of a complete rebuild, anyway. Just looking for opinions.

I prolly don't "need" this upgrade. Was just kicking around different ideas.
