that's been my thinking too. i don't want get overly worked up to throw that pipe on, run a ots map and press go, if i am going to cause myself problems down the road by not installing other helpful or supporting mods. i bought this car to be a reliable replacement to my super modded n/a obs, which was becoming a money pit. i've learned i'm not rich enough to race my daily driver and it put it at risk of breaking down. hahaha
i've been looking at the deatschwerks 265 lph and the walbro 255lph pumps. i eventually want to replace my td04 with a vf52, so a new pump and new injectors will be inevitable.
i bought the DP used from my local tuner, revolutions performance, and got dyno tuning pricing figured out through them. it was good to meet them and get a sense of their shop.
