Default Fuel system to support 1000 hp ideas?

2001 c5
forged 346
2200r/ysi blower
I have an intake lingenfelter walbro replacement pump that’s supposed to be good for 600-700 hp and FIC 1000cc/95 lb injectors on 93/100% Meth. What’s a good add on or system that won’t break the bank that will support up to 1100 hp. I may not ever make that kinda power but I wanna make sure I don’t have to re do my fuel system ever again. Would this be asking too much from just a boost a pump?

Yes. To support 1100 hp you will need way more pump than a walboro and boost a pump.

My recommendation would be to look into the A&A or ECS external fuel pump kits, use atleast 8AN feed lines to both rails(parallel not in series) and possibly even an 8AN return line so you have room to grow in the future if you decide to go E85 or want to turn it up even more.

Another option that is slightly more expensive is to have Bret(Blownbluez06) make you a dual walboro 450 pump hanger. As I said, it will be more expensive but it would be the last fuel setup you would have to purchase.

I seen those. The A&A is like $1500 and the ECS is like $800..you saying either of these would work cause thatís a decent price difference between the 2 there.

I think you are looking at the A&A dual pump system. Their single pump system(which I just noticed the page is under construction) is more comparable to the ECS system in terms of price and capacity. Either one of those single external pump systems should get you where you want to be. If you really want to plan for room to grow I'd recommend swapping out the FIC1000 for the FIC127 or something comparable.

didn’t even see the single pump
set up the first time I see it now. Gonna see what my installer and tuner thinks about the 2. There’s only 1 E85 station in like a 50 mile radius where I live and it’s always out from what I hear or I’d be perusing that more. I’m gonna research the single setup and see if will support 800-1000 rwhp in combination with my pump.

factory pump then add an external Magnafuel 4303 on a boost pressure switch. you will be good for all the power that supercharger can make.

ok guys...yíall make this sound easy with that setup. How complicated and how much money and time do you think it would take to do this? The A&A dual pump kit is preferred by my installer and I can see why cause it looks like a pretty much plug and play deal but at $1500 could I come out with just as good a system and cheaper by doing the magnafuel. I wonít be plumbing it and am wondering if by the time they do all that Iím gonna be looking at $1500 also with parts and labor. Itís just Iíve gone so far over my budget Iím trying to save a dollar wherever I can.

if you did it yourself you could be at or under $1500 but having someone else do it you will likely be over that... if you go with the magnafuel that pump is about $500, pre and post filters $200, regulator $200, plus all the lines and fittings that you will need which adds up quick, a hobbs switch/relay/wiring, and fuel rails if you want to do that and don't already have them
