How big injectors will the stock fuel selector valve maintain?

I am looking at doing so e serious mods to my obs and am getting to the injectors and turbo part. How big injectors will the stock fuel selector valve maintain without hurting my power or making injectors useless. Looked at doing bronco swap but want some advice and input first. I read diesel power mag keeping up with the jones and it caught my attention. Thanks!

Diesel Power's Mike McGlothlin was running 300/200 hybrids to high 500 hp with the selector.

Ok cool. Just didn't want to build a furl system for nothing. I know bdp says you can buy theirs with a twin pump but will do my no good without swapping to a bronco tank or running just one tank..

Yeah, that kit is mostly for the Super Duty's with their giant single tanks. Unless you went semi-custom. Each tank is the same size more-or-less, run one pump to each head...

Ah ok. So 300/200 maybe just a bit big then for selector valve. Somewhere I read in article you could put a bigger selector valve but I don't remember where that was at...

Here's the thing, sure you can put in a larger valve but then the pick-up tube is still 3/8" in the tank. Going for a bigger valve will get you a little longer of a blast of power but yo will still starve the engine from the tank. If you need the performance you get from 300/200, or bigger, then you are already looking at a custom setup. Pick your poison.

Good point, think I will try to hunt me down a bronco tank. Most part I heard it bolts on. But I believe you have to leave selector valve hooked up to get a fuel gauge reading. Correct?

Not if that's the only tank you are going to run. Than you can just jump the two wires together. If you are going to use both tanks then grab a cheap 5 post relay and hook the switch's power to post 85, ground to post 86, gauge to post 30, and the front tank to 87a, and the rear to 87.
