Fuel system

Hey guys I am new to this site, but not to cars. I do have a couple of questions though about the 05 mustangs. I have a 2005 Mustang GT with a fully built bottom end, cams, C&L intake, and most importantly a custom turbo kit with a 78mm Benita Turbonetics turbocharger. My current fuel setup is primarily stock, with the exception of my injectors being 80# Ford Racing, and the M-9407-GT05 fuel pump setup. Last year I made 575 rwhp on 14psi, on E85, in 85 degree heat. Now I am wondering what is the limit of the GT500 fuel pumps? Also, what is the limit of my overall fuel system? I am looking at possibly just putting fuel rails and a BAP in it, but at the same time my goals for the year are to increase my boost up to 21psi. Any thoughts?

I have had a number of foxbody cars and the fuel system capabilities in a fox are clearly much different from those of the 2005 mod cars.

I've heard the GT500 pump is good to 700 rwhp although 600 rwhp is also thrown around. Kenne Bell says GT500 pump, 80# injectors and competition BAP is good to 1000 rwhp.

Thanks Redfire281. I guess I have read so much information I am just at a loss at what to trust. I really don't want to blow up a 4k short block. I was thinking about getting fuel rails and maybe a BAP.
