You'd be surprised at to how few aftermarket pumps are designed to support high flow AND high pressure for sustained use. And those that are, are way too loud to use in a street car. Therein lies the need to use multiple pumps in series. The primary pump we use in my own car is a 1200HP Prodigy digital fuel pump FuelLab. By their own admission, during a talk we had with them at SEMA, it would not have lasted long in an application that runs 72psi static.
