SD/ aftermarket fuel build

What type of fuel pressure could I maintain with a SD fuel pump and would it maintain enough volume with my stg1s.
I will also be installing a regulated return system.

I would think the regulator would control maximum pressure.

It should hold pressure for Is or IIs just fine. I'd set the pressure around 50psi or so. More pressure doesn't mean more power. In fact when I ran mine up to much, around 80psi) I actually lost power.
