Need sugestions for 331 set up with v2 si
I bought an unfinished project and would like to try to set this car up right so it will run good and achieve some nice hp numbers. Currently the car runs fine. I had to have the vortech v2 s sent out for new bearings and had them instal an upgraded si impeller. I have asked this question to a few shops and have got different answers. Some have told me to change the fuel pump, others have told me the fuel pumps are fine and to change the injectors to 60lb and change the mass air to 90mm. Any suggestions are welcome. This car is primarily for the street with occasional strip usage. I am also considering putting on an intercooler but haven't found any great photos showing how people have set it up on a similar car (1994-1995)
Here is the current set up:
DSS 331 stroker
anderson motorsport cam
Trick Flow twisted wedge heads with 190cc
trick flow street heat intake
vortech fmu (which i think can be deleted)
aeromotive fuel pressure regulator
bbk 75 mm throttle body
air prom 76mm mass air
vortech v2 si with 3" pulley 8 rib pulley set up
anderson power pipe
bbk shorty headers
bbk off road h pipe
2 wide band 02 sensors
flow master 3 chamer exhaust
wallbro 255 lph in tank pump
t rex in line pump
What would you recommend changing in this set up? Thanks for the input.

Late reply, but how are you making out with this car?
Ive never been a fan of the dual pump setup that work on the same line.
I would put the attention to the fuel system.
Change the pumps to either a single intank pump like a Aeromotive 340 or the new Walbro 400. A seperate power supply/relay would be nice to ensure the pump is getting all the voltage throughout the entire RPM range.
Id also suggest to upgrade the feed and return lines. Ive got -8an feed and -6an return on my car. Overkill? Perhaps.
You can go 60lb injectors, get rid of the FMU and get a dynotune/chip for it. Make sure the tuner knows what they are doing with a 94-95 computer. Ive heard of MANY so called tuners suggest to swap to a foxbody computer like an A9L, for dumb reasons like "an SCT doesnt work well with 94-95 computers". This is backwards, dont listen to any "tuner" that tells you that. IF the tuner uses an SCT chip, get a matching SCT BA meter.
Should have no problem making 500+ rwhp. However, keep in mind that the block is the weak link at those power levels. Keep the RPMs under 6500 and have the tune spot on and the block will live.

magic is correct on the matter.
Id put attention into fuel system, and even maybe swap out the blower for a t-trim so u have more room to grow:D
fuel lines are pretty easy to do, and not to expensive. FMU is also junk.. as he said lol
PS, magic been a long time you homo!:D i wasnt even aware of the 400, that work in our cars?
