What Fuel pumps and lines to use?

I would like to run a 70mm turbo on my car with afr 165, 42lb injectors, cobra intake and I would need enough fuel for roughly 500rwhp. Please show pics of your setup and recommendations. I'm on a budget.

I supported that power level for a couple of years using stock lines, stock rails and with a 190 intank(they had no 255s back then) and a Bosch external pump.

I would just run a HIGH PRESSURE Walbro 255 intank.

Make sure you get the high press. one. It delivers more fuel at the
higher fuel press. boosted engines run. Fuel flow drops off as press. rises
on the regular ones.

don't mean to hijack but i'm in a similar boat. Do you guys think a single walbro high pressure 255 intank will support 500rwhp?

There is no guarantee it will….but many for many of us, it works perfectly fine by itself.

I should have also noted that I currently do not have any fuel lines at the moment but I do atleast have a stock 89 tank. Should I try to find a nice set of factory lines or since I have to buy them anyway should I go a different route?

Find someone doing a complete fuel system on their car and buy up the stock lines for next to nothing from them.

So stock lines, intank 255, and a inline 255 should be plenty? Should the rails be upgraded as well?

Post up in the classifieds, I'd imagine someone out there is doing a complete fuel system and will have the stuff just laying around. Buying lines like that though is something I would want to be a local purchase. Could not even imagine how that could/would be shipped.

Love the QT kit, I didn't have any of the problems that others had fortunately.

Not sure on the dimensions of the intercooler, I think they're listed in the big QT thread. Modifications to the front bumper were very minor and were made on the backside of the front cover. The 4 eye cars are quite a bit different than the aero nose cars which take a lot of hacking for some of the kits i've seen.

I have always lived by the rule of if you are going to be making past 550 then go with a complete fuel system. I am sure someone can give a more accurate number though but my theory has at least not lead to a blown up motor so I must be thinking somewhat right.

Another thing I live by, if all you got is a stock block then do not worry about the lines or rails, they will handle the power that the block can handle.

Would it hurt if I used the after market rails? My friend gave me some with a trade we made a long time ago so they kinda free.

It should not but unless you have all the fittings to use them then you will end up spending more money over just finding some stock rails.
