fuel pump question

ok I have the stock setup for fuel, BUT if I put a inline electiric pump like 70gpm or gph whatever as a helper pump will it hurt anything, will it over work the mechanical pump ontop of the motor or will it make it work less ?

The diesel engine (not sure about PSD) has a fuel return line off of the (usaly the pump) in this case i would asume the injectors, so that any excess fuel returns to tank. So basicly if u end up putting TOO much fuel to the injectors it should bypass and go back to tank (in theory). I would think that an electric pump before the pickup pump would reduce the strain on it. Just a thought
