fuel pump options. advice please

2013 ZL1 M6
heres the current build - new upgrades in bold (previously factory size or part)
2.55 / 9.55 pulleys
1 7/8" headers - no cats
rotofab intake
ID850 injectors
LS9 cam
Ported blower and snout
Ported LS7 throttle body
AFCO HX
catch can

From what I can tell the fuel pump is maxed out around 4-4500 rpm.
I'm looking for a drop in upgrade as this will most likely be the end of power mods for the car.
I'm not trying to be to cheap. But I'm also not looking to buy something thats overkill for my application. I see a dual 340 (680lph) pump from Aeromotive Dual Phantom Fuel Systems, but reviews dont look to good.
I'm trying not to spend much more than $700 if I dont have to.
I'm not extremely well versed in fuel systems so any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Agreed. I just put my JMS BAP up for sale due to new motor build. Has about 5000 miles on it.

I also think a fuel pump voltage booster could be enough. It's a lot cheaper and easier than any pump replacement. But you have to try it to know for sure. You can do what I did and duct tape a fuel pressure gauge to your windshield to live monitor fuel pressure.

Not sure what your goals are for the car or if you have any longevity concerns, but you might want to look at a 10" lower upgrade instead of adding the 2.55. The 2.55 puts you right up there in the blower speed danger zone, if we are to believe the lingenfelter or weapon x charts.

I’ve given up recommending pulleys to people. Everyone thinks they can just bolt on whatever and the more overdrive the better. Not so. All you do is add heat above 35%.

OP a BAP is probably all you need.
