I think you really need to figure out what your plans are and when you really will get to doing the things you are planning.
If you want 500 hp the stock fuel system will be at its limits but will work. If you want a system that you wont have to worry about and will easily support your 500 goal then the Irate kit is nice.
You can get a hutch mod for the $200, a Regulated return for about $450 -$500 and keep your fuel bowl, or get the fuel bowl delete and put you close to the $1,000 you would spend anyways cause you then need a post pump filter kit.....
If you do a hutch mod now and get a fuel kit later you will be dropping your tank again, ask me how I know.
The hutch mod gets rid of those screens, so does the Irate fuel kit.
Do your research and decide what you want to do once or multiple times.
I say buy the kit now, your going to anyways down the road. And who knows if your screens are even the problem? You could pull the whole thing apart to find the screen clean as can be. Mine were and have 190K on them.....Its my pump that failed.
Just trying to save you cash and time based on my personal experiences.
