When is 5/8 fuel tank pick up nessasary?

Starting to prep my fuel system to handle bigger injectors by installing Strictly diesels fuel tank/pre-pump kit. I noticed they offer a larger fuel tank pick up but have this noted in the description. "NOTE: This product is not intended for use with the stock fuel pump. If you will be running the stock fuel pump and are looking for pre-pump fuel system modifications, check out the PRE-PUMP /TANK KIT.". Why isn't it recommended to run with the stock pump? at what point is a 5/8 pickup needed? And could i use it for a while with my stock pump? I will eventualy add in a second pump or fuel lab pump or fass system or air dog setup and I would like to only have to do any in tank work once.

Have you considered a sump kit rather then draw straw style. Just another option for you to consider

If you do that pickup, you get rid of the stock "prefilter." Same with a sump.

Have not considered a sump kit, I can only think of advantages. Any disadvantages to a sump? I am adding in a pre pump filter an eventually a post pump filter so the in tank pre filter wont be needed

Sump requires no tank drop, and pump doesn't have to pull fuel up the tube.

X2^^^ gravity fed compared to pulling against gravity. You could also then change out to whatever barb size to match the hose you wanna run to suit your needs. Also with the draw straw if you don't cut it the correct length you will get a 1/4 tank issue where you suck air before the tank is empty.

I'm sure one of the site sponsors would have a sump kit. I got mine off xdp but any the major aftermarket company's have them. I have heard good things about the Hellman sump but to me there all the same.
