Fuel System Setup?

OK, I had originally started with the idea of 400 rwhp...truck is in too bad a shape but still want some more power. South bend flywheel and clutch along with TW chip and stage ones from DIY are on the way. What do you suggest for a setup of fuel delivery? Some say run dual stock pumps. Im thinking a cheap inline but dont know where to look......

I'm in the process right now of ditching the mechanical pump and filter assembly and going electric. I'm liking the looks of the empty valley already. I've been following these two articles for a DIY project. Taking the best of both and combining them. Can't wait to see how this makes my truck run.

fuel pump

ok from what I understand the electric pump is more consistant but will it provide more fuel than the mechanical stock pump? I dont want to take the chance of upgrading injectors and ruining them because I starve them for fuel..... I am wanting to spend as little money as possible also obviously.

I have never heard of anyone ever trying to buy a bigger mechanical fuel pump for their PS. But I have heard of people having to convert to electrical in order to supply enough fuel. Some people do two electrical pumps. Check out this two pump setup. Wish it was mine.

Converting to electrical is not cheap. I figure I will have 500 into mine when I get done.
