You can see my mods in the link in my signature if you're interested.

EDIT: And would a full AN fuel system be nice? Yes. Is it needed for your goals? No.
A 255 pump will cause a restriction because it's trying to flow 255lph through a tiny feed line. The restriction will be caused on the return side and not allow the fuel pressure regulator to function properly. This will show up on a gauge as a higher than normal fuel pressure with a unsteady needle.

Also you can always tell a mustang that has a 255 in with stock lines. It whines something crazy because it's trying to flow at 255 but the tiny lines will not allow it.

Don't overlook a proper fuel system design.
