Different car, but with 255/40x17 tyres and a 3.27 rear, my T56 with 0.74 5th lets me see 200mph at around 67-6800rpm.

So it's pretty ideal for high speed stuff, at least in the 200mph region...

If the belt isnt getting damaged and you arent experiencing slip, then I'd just run it and not worry too much about it. If the belt is happy running in that position, just let it do so.

You could run -10 from the turbos, and then tee them together in between the turbos. Then scavenge via a single line from that point, rather that pulling from two long hoses.

Just because you have 2000cc injectors, doesnt mean you need to inject 2000cc of fuel all the time.

2 nozzles will only be too rich because you need to retune the main fuel supply.

The set you've pictured looks like a flush set to be mounted on the underside of the hood...which would probably be trickier.
