Hello
I'm assuming that you've increased the engine size to 2275cc?
so the most robust route is to use an aftermarket in line electric fuel pump to push fuel through you'll need at least a 225 ltrs/ hour unit to keep up with this engien ( assuming its about 200Bhp)
if you locate the pump under the tank, in-line with the fuel line and wire it with a relay off the ignition feed so its off with the ignition
