Talking enough fuel????????

hey guys quick question. Right now ive got a quadzilla xzillirator, 150 hp inj., and a smarty and i havnt had any problems gettin enough fuel out of my stock vp 44. I do have 2 carter 100 gph lift pumps and i am getting plenty of fuel pressure but my question is i just bought a tst power max 3 with the competition file which supposedly fuels alot harder than the regular power max 3. Now obviously i am goin to take the quadzilla off and use the tst for fuel only since it is just a fuel box and the smarty for its phenominal timing but i got to thinking and was woundering if my stock vp44 is goin to be able to keep up with this fuel demand as i am assuming this tst will fuel alot more and harder than the quadzilla. does anybody on here have a set up kind of like mine or know somebody who does and will the stock vp44 keep up as long as my lift pumps are suppling enough fuel or do i need to plan on gettin a hot rod vp44. thanks

the smarty and TST setup is a good setup...your VP shouldnt have a problem keeping up with that setup. You would have to worry more about your lift pumps not being able to supply the VP with enough (but from the looks of it you should be alright). My bud had a smarty stacked with a quadzilla adrenaline and he had a FASS 150 and stock VP and his ran fine. He also had 200hp injectors.

The VP can handle a god bit of hp. Just keeping enough fuel going to the VP is the problem. If you see that you start dropping fuel psi, you might need to upgrade to Fass/Airdog 150.

These guys have it right...I'd deffinitly upgrade to a 150 Fass/AirDog/Raptor..a SO VP44 can get you 600hp w/o a problem...just make sure your giving it enough FP...

Yeap... Nate's right if the fuel pressure stays above 10 PSI you'll be fine...
