If you want a plug and play option and you don't care about the price, then FFTEC has a good solution that works and will maintain pressure under surge. Story is still out on parallel. Because parallel doesn't raise the head, only increases flow. Also as indicated parallel is not recommended in highly restricted systems. So we'll see. I can tell you that the series solution works. That is why feel so stongly about the solution because I'm using it and it works. So when someone tells me it doesn't have to wonder where they got their information. Anyway, it doesn't really matter. Regardless everyone will form an opinion, just don't cast doubt on a solution that works just because you don't like the vendor it's associated with.
That sounds reasonable at $475 installed, labor alone is probably $200. If the price was $275 for the FFTEC kit then I think more would consider it. The fuel pump goes for $180 with the install kit. Paying $100 for extra fuel lines and such seems reasonable but paying $400+ seems very excessive to me.

I suspect that any minor low pressure upgrade would be enough to support original turbos. Once you upgrade the turbos the parallel setup is probably going to be the best way to go. Since you already own the pump if you ever want to switch it sounds like you will need only change around a couple of your fuel lines.
