Upgrading efuel setup

Hey guys ive been running a efuel setup for about 2yrs now and im thinking about doing some upgrades. I want to run some 5/8in pickup tubes and 1/2 fuel line with twin 044 fuel pumps(i can get pretty good deals on the stuff thats why lol) But with the selector valve im not sure how to do that as it wont allow me to run 1/2 lines. Is there a way to bypass it or upgrade it.
Thanks guys

What would really be the purpose of a "upgrade"? A regular e fuel setup can support the 238 hyrbrids you're looking at and your money would be better spent towards those injectors

I havent seen anyone running a setup like that before so for me thats a good reason to try it, and this truck may turn into my play toy so i might throw some 300 or 400cc injectors in it. I already have most of the parts from other projects. Just trying to figure out how to use bigger fuel lines with the stock selector valve.

gunna disagree here a regular e-fuel system using a single SD pump won't keep up with a set of 160/100s at WOT for more than a few seconds

I disagree my stock fuel pump keeps up just barely with my 250/200's.

you're keeping over 50psi with those injectors after say 5-10 seconds with your foot on the floor?

Yep. I guess maybe I just have a really good oem pump. I was quite surprised myself.

Truck pulls hard even at 3500rpm. With just a bit of haze.

After some searching i found some people using a bwd fsv3 selector switch. They say it has 3/8 outlets and 5/16 return so im going to swing by oriellys and check one out. Its only 90bucks for the switch and a pigtail kit since it wont plug into the factory harness.
