"The Go" as you put it, is to fit aftermarket management, and bigger injectors, and use the standard regulator as its a 1:1 reg. Thats if you want to be able to tune properly, and have your engine last.

Simplest bet would be to leave the Injectors, computer and reg std.
Upgrade the fuel pump, and fit one of these:

if u want no more than 170kw. it maybe simple but stupid and wouldn't recommend it.

best option is as delta said, stock reg with big injectors, bigger pump and a aftermarket ecu. u will have far less problems this way. also capable of alot more power

if ur not going to use a aftermarket ecu, then i would get a vortech 10:1 rr reg, and run it at about stock fuel pressure at idle. but u will need to put it on the dyno and check afr's. i would still get a pump to

defiantly not the best option, but it works.

What's the go with the stock reg. Is it even a pressure refferenced reg? Somehow I doubt it. If it is then it would work properly if its not then its useless.

They are all pressure referenced, but the stock reg isn't a rising rate.
It is linear.

yes the stock reg rises fuel pressure at 1:1 ratio with boost.
