Default What Fuel system to install with my mods? fass?

So I'm wondering if I should install a fuel system on my truck and if I even need one. How to I know which system to use as far a how much fuel they are pushing? Like a 90, 125, 200, or 225 GPH and they have different pressures. Then there are the driven diesel or irate systems built specifically for the 7.3.
I know I would have to add the fuel bowl ****** system to my current reg return system.
If someone could tell me the benefits of having a system vs staying with my the stock pump I would appreciate it. The main reason I started looking into it is because I noticed sediment in the fuel filter bowl when I change my filter last time. My injectors are 238/80 hybrids. I don't plan on adding anymore power in the near future do to having PMR's.
One more thing to add, Should I consider upgrading valve springs and pushrods?

Just do a factory hfcm from a 6.7 if you don't have plans to add more power

When I say I don't plan on adding power, I mean no more after whatever power a fuel system might add...

I would keep the upper filter. since when was a fuel system a power adder? it just helps you keep your injectors alive

I've sold and installed several of the Irate and Driven Diesel fuel systems with Fuelab pumps. They'r both great kits. Irate does have a slightly cheaper kit that will work for your size injectors that used a Deatsch Werks pump, I only have 1 customer with one, zero issues.
