At what point should I be concerned about running out of fuel pump?
Car has run [email protected] at 3510 race weight. Fuel pressure is perfect on my datalogger. I'm just wondering how much room I have?

How heavy is your car.
3200+ but i also run 43lbs of fuel pressure under boost. so that takes some flow ability from the pump. there is plenty more left there believe me

I know there is plenty left because I run the same pump and reg. and a single needle carb on e85 and run almost exactly what you do @3250lb. I was told that my carb and pump were good for 900hp at the crank on e85, but I know there is a safety margin in that figure.
