First off I'd need to know what injector/turbo combination you're running, or planning on running to decide how much fuel you need to deliver. Unless you went crazy with that, you don't need that much fuel system.

Considering you can't mill the heads more then a few thousandths, like no more then .007-.008" without potential clearance issues I don't think you raised your compression a significant amount. You can't shave .100" off a set of 6.0 heads like you could a SBC 350 and get away with it.

90hp injectors are pretty minor as far as what you need for a fuel system. I'm not too familiar with everything RCD offers for injector options these days, but you should be able to adequately supply up to a set of 190-200cc injectors with a fairly basic fuel system. I run an Airdog 150 pusher to the stock HFCM, and an ITP regulated return system under the hood. It's plenty for an average size injector. I've got about $1200 plus labor in to it. There are other options on the market that could get you by for less money then that. Lots of different ways to skin that particular cat. I would suggest searching out some fuel system threads, there are plenty. Ask questions and take your time. You'll find what's best for you.

That Elite fuel system is a complete rip off. There are a hundred ways to build a nice fuel system that are way less expensive. Fuelab Prodigy 41402 high pressure pump, a couple of filters, FPR, and some line and fittings. It's pretty easy to build a decent fuel system.

On the other hand an Airdog 150 feeding the stock pump is more than capable of feeding the stuff you are running. Any bigger injectors and you are going to need a bigger turbo too.

A water seperator, fuel lab pump, and filter plus a y at the heads will do fine. I will give you one hint, get hose or tubing rated for 100 psi or better, it is kinda pricey but better than blowing a hose a long way from home.
