How to size a fuel system

I'm wanting to purchase a fuel system to put in for future injector mods. I'm leaning towards the airdog II but I have no idea how to size it...95gph, 150gph, etc. I'll be running stock sticks for a while but when I do swap em out, it will be for anwhere from 155's to 175's (possibly 190's but not any bigger.) what size system should I go with and how do you decide that?

2005 CC FX4...compounds and everything else that goes with em.

Re: How to size a fuel system

I would suggest for the minimal if any price difference going with the larger pump IMO its always better to have more then you need then not have enough. I would go with the 150gph

Re: How to size a fuel system

the price difference are still minimal between fixed or adjustable and I would still suggest getting the biggest. Neither fixed or adjustable require and under hood regulated return.
