Per the factory manual, there is a static test you can conduct to determine sufficient fuel delivery. First, be careful. I recommend doing this test on a completely cold engine in a well ventilated area, like outdoors. Disconnect the return line from the fuel distributor and attach a hose that can be placed in a graduated container. Switch the key on and prepare to measuse the deliver by time, Disconnect the plug from the top center of the distributor and the pumps will begin delivery. Reconnect the plug to stop the pumps after the test. Your system should be capable of delivering 1500cc per minute. I measured a 15 second delivery and multiplied by four. (I have a short attention span) An engine will only create as much power as the fuel available to convert.
