Hey gys, just wondering if the stock fuel pump would provide enough fuel for a surge tank to feed an 044. Im having problems getting my walbro 255 to pick up fuel so this is an easy option if the stocker can do it.

While im at it how far 46lb injecters take me. Using stock reg,fuel lines and rail if that helps any. Right now it doesn't matter, (as the car isnt finnished lol ) but when i blow my T5 ill start putting in more boost (8psi ATM) and id just like a rough idea what the potential is on the fuel side.

cheers gys

the stock pump will supply plenty of fuel to the surge tank.

46lb should be ok for up to 350rwhp or 260rwkw

cheers fritzz. Well 260 is plenty, and i wouldn't think it will make that much on 8psi even with the cam and head I have. I was hoping for about 200-220 with safe tune. Is that a safe figure or on the edge ? the injectors i mean.
