Default Greddy fueling?

I've been waiting for my fuel pump to show up from lightningmotorsport for a while now, but I'm assuming they ran into some trouble with the hurricane as they aren't answering phone calls...

Anyways, I've got a stock greddy kit, with an MSD timing box, vortech fmu (12:1 disk) set at 7psi.
I have 1.8l tan top injectors waiting to go in, as well as a vortech recal kit...

I was planning on waiting until the fuel pump comes to throw the pump, injectors, and an 8:1 disc in... but i'm not sure when the pump will be here.

So... if i were to put just the tan tops in, with the stock 1.6 fuel pump, what disk would you guys recommend running? Would it be best to just wait for the pump?

Also, WITH the pump, would 8:1 be too rich for 7psi? I'm waiting on a tonyDP so i can install my wideband, so I need to play it safe until then...

I know the 12:1 with a stock pump and tantops is too rich... what disk would be best?

I guess i can pull the narrowband o2 sensor and put the aem wbo2 in, as long as i send the white (analog) into the stock o2 wire, right? Does it need some sort of simulator?

It's been so long since I had a stock DP, I don't remember where the o2 sensor is mounted... but you don't want to put a wideband sensor any closer than two feet or so from the turbo. It will have a short life.
