Question Over kill with fuel???

So the miata is almost done, an it seems that I might have an issue with too much fuel? Tell me what you think.

MODS:
Built motor/top/bottom end
264/264 Cam
T61 Turbo
3" DP
Built rear-end
AEM EMS

Etc.

Now as far as fuel, I have a 255LPH HP pump, with an auxiliary fuel pump, flyin' miata fuel rail, an 750CC injectors? I'm hoping for 400 whp but I don't want to over kill it as far as fuel goes...What do you think???

Thanks agian.

Jason

i think you could probably get rid of the second pump, for sure if you went with the non-hp pump, the injectors sound about right

Overkill? As long as you have something to control it, what does it matter how much it can support. Why a t61 for 400whp on a built motor?

Well it's already in, just making sure it wouldn't cause problems BTW I also have a aeromotive FPR...neogenesis-Why don't you think a T61 is a good turbo for 400 whp? I thought it was a well based turbo for my goals...Thanks agian.

I would remove the in-line pump. It's more likely to be an unnecessary restriction to flow than it is to be helpful.
