how much fuel pump necessary?

Looking to support around 750-800 NA horsepower when I get the BIG block together and then another 250ish on nitrous on top of that. I'm currently using a Mallory comp 140 electric pump and it has performed very well with my 550ish NA 408W, I was thinking about using it to supplement the nitrous but will need a pump to feed the rest. Suggestions? I currently run 8AN feed/return, will I need to go 10AN or larger for the main pump?

I'm going from the Mallory also to a a1000 -10 feed with -8 return with direct port nitrous and going to use my Mallory comp for nitrous with -8 feed and -6 return.

Tag and ins it's a street car, how it gets there does it really matter?

Nobody's perfect but if u drive a ford your darn close.

I've been looking at both the Magnafuel and Aeromotive pumps plus some others. I have good filters, so I may just go with the Magnafuel 500 part number 4401 in stead of the 4450 that has the filter built in. still open to all options.

I'm partial to the Aeromotive 2000.

If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space!
