Is your fuel cell in the front or rear? Approx what hp is the engine?

Fuel cell is in the rear of the truck , Hoping the engine makes 800+ hp
There are a couple of different options you have depending on whether you want to go mechanical or electric.

On an electric pump anything over 650hp and we recommend our BG400 pump and 4 port regulator. Plumbing for this would be -12an to the pump and -10an to the regulator.

If you did not want to go the electric route you could also go mechanical with a belt driven pump.

I would be going with an electric set up

Thanks for the advise
