    It all depends on what you want to do with the truck. There is guys that make power with standard output VP44's. However, if yours is out now it might be a good time to upgrade. Whatever you do make sure you have an adequate lift pump to supply pressure to your new VP44.

    That has always been my opinion as well.

    I would suggest the SO pump (stock), then add a Edge Juice/Quadzilla Adrenaline, and then some 50 HP injectors and you'll see a good amount of power. Very controllable and actually really good for MPG's.

    This is also a good plan. Don't forget about a lift pump upgrade!

    Thank-you so much. I think i will go with the injectors and new pump/edge. It sounds like a really great combo. I put a fass dbrp 02 on it will that be enough pump?
