stock fuel system

I have in the past. It was good for 570 WHP. Lot of variables to that . I wouldn't advise pushing it. I had a real solid Short block under the hood and a smart tune with a really conservative rev limit.

Zl1 fuel pump is a good affordable option I ran my car with out it for a while and had no issue but its worth the $250

i agree, i just put down 622whp on 65lb injectors (injectors are for sale btw)

Reasonably these days you can get a fuel system capable of 600-650whp for around $800-1000.... the one thing not to go chincy on when boosting is the fuel system. That is your saving grace.

My car ran out of fuel past 550hp on stock fuel system.

I did ....and Glad my tuner was conservative cause I survived........ Whats cheaper .... a proper fuel system ..... or a short block ......at best

Never try to save a buck on the fueling to these motors.........KABOOM is in your future. When in doubt......whip it out, the check book that is.

just my $.02

Sure, what you are planning now is adequate, but you WILL, and i repeat....WILL want more. Just do it and get it over with.

With my E-Force S/C with 52# injectors, LT headers and axle back I was running out of fuel. I installed a ZL1 fuel pump and 72# injectors. It's running fine now with 546/rwhp. It's on an LS3.
