Full Force competition fuel system

So I'm upgrading my fuel system to get rid of the dead head issue and the stock fuel bowl. And I have a few questions pertaining to issues I might run into.
1. Will the bigger better fuel system cause problems with stock (190k miles) injectors?
2. Which one is better Aeromotive a1000 or fuelab? (I'm leaning towards fuelab)
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

On a stock or very mild build truck it is pointless to spend that much $$$ on a competition fuel system designed for very high HP.

The bigger fuel system will not harm your stock injectors.

Aeromotive is by far the more capable pump. Fuelab actually does not even have or released a comparable pump to reliably supply enough pressure. Fuelab does make great products. Especially their regulators, which I use in my competition fuel systems.

I do make a fuel system that does retain the bowl and eliminates the starvation issue in the #8 injector.

Honestly I would just get the FRx from Riff Raff and do the hutch mod and call it a day. It would eliminate the dead head problems and not break the bank. A good alternative for a mildly modified truck.

I should mention that I plan on upgrading injectors to possibly a 250/200 and the turbo to either a modded h2e or just a 38r.

Then talk to Hucorey about his fuel systems. I have the version the retains the fuel bowl, its very slick and will easily keep up to the injectors you want

Haha sorry bout that. I knew I was forgetting to add something in my first post. I'm kinda curious about your kits and what exactly is going on with them.
