How much HP can a stock TBI handle?
Stock small-block throttle bodies only flow around 500 cfm (compared with a stock Q-jet that flows 750 cfm). It’s possible to make around 275 hp with a stock TBI unit, so rather than go nuts on a heavily modified TBI, I’d suggest you start by making sure the existing TBI unit and injectors are in good shape.
What happens if the fuel pressure regulator fails?
The fuel pressure regulator controls the fuel pressure in the fuel rail. If there is something wrong with the fuel pressure regulator, it can create too low or too high fuel pressure in the rail. It is not very common that this part fails, but it can happen.
