F/I fuel line, MAF, TB & injector size question

I searched the threads but couldn't find an answer to the following questions:

(1) with a P1-SC-1 making 10 p.s.i. of boost is it advisable to upgrade the fuel line, MAF and/or TB ?

(2) if you go to a higher level of boost (and I do plan to go to around 13-15 p.s.i.) does the answer to question 1 change and if so how ? What about the injector size (the kit comes w/ 39 lbs. injectors) ? Should it be changes to, say, 42 or 60 lbs. size just to be safe ?

(3) if I was going to upgrade the fuel line anyway what would be the best choice in terms of size, materials/manufacturer ?

If you're pushing over 400 rwhp you'll need a new MAF or a MAFia.

I would upgrade to a bigger maf and tb anyways, get full potential with that blower. I had to upgrade my tb when i had my kb put on. And if 39lb injectors coem with the kit, use those. Thats what i have on my car.

Thanks guys- what size MAF and TB would you go to given where I'm headed (6-700 HP) ?

Also, what about fule line change- any suggestion there (e.g., size change from OEM, type of material to use) ?

You might want to go with a blow through setup with an SCT BA-3000.

Instead of a suck through MAF, a blow through is placed between the blower and throttle body. Works on centrifugals and turbos.

Anybody in particular you'd recommend buying from ? How large an MAF and TB would you go to at this point given the current boost of 10 p.s.i. and planned 14-18 p.s.i. ?

Take a look at VMP Tuning Inc. They have a good selection of MAFs. I'd save the $$ on the TB. You don't really need it.
