    Once I finish building my NPI block I have I'm gonna throw my Vortech up for sale and turbo the new engine. Let us know if you have any questions, I've gone down the turbo route before and its not bad at all. I would recommend going with 60lb injectors and just getting it out of the way. The 98 cars have a unique style fuel pump hat and bucket so be aware of that when you get your 255 ordered they are a all self contained unit.

    Oh for sure they will work, 60's will just give you room to grow is all. I have 43lbers currently at 400rwhp and they work great!

    As in the pump is contained in a sealed bucket. 94 all the way to 97 had just a fuel pump hat and you can buy the regular walbro 255's for them. With ours you buy the bucket and everything as one piece. There is a way to take apart the bucket and modify it to replace just the fuel pump but I went with just buying the entire aftermarket unit.
