Default Leaned out plugs...new fuel pump?

Ok, I'm takin a stab at the crazies in the FI forum to see if you can shed some light so I don't screw myself over.

Specs: 88 dx hatch w/pre-obd b16 swap, near stock intake/exhaust (college took my money) and plans to supercharge

Problem: I checked my spark plugs the other day for the heck of it (1/2 yr old Denso Irdiums) and saw that they had a nice white look all over them...leaned out. My timing is set at 17* of advance (15+or- two is stock recomm.) and it always gets 93 octance.

So, since the car see's daily driver, college transporter duty (200+ mi. trips every so often) I think it wouldn't be a bad idea to just go ahead and replace the fuel pump this summer. Well, lucky me a google search pulled up a classifieds for Walbro pumps =)

(click pic for link)
We are selling the 190, 255, and 255High Pressure pumps and installation kits with FREE SHIPPING for $79, $89, and $99 respectively.
Dang good deal huh? They have my car listed on their site also (lightningmotorsports) with a installation kit. What all does the "kit" include usually? Basically what I'm wondering is if I buy this if there's anything else I'm going to need to mod for the pump to work right.

Cliffsnotes: I think I may need a fuel pump for my high mileage swapped hatch, if not it's still good insurance. I wonder if there will be a suprise to this project, and which (lph) should I get for a near stock, but plans for supercharger on down the road?

think that's it....

I know this is homemadeturbo, but i knew yall usually know your FI crap and I don't.

The fuel pump is a uninstall/install thing. Nothing top secret. Get the 255lph. You can drive it stock, drive it with a supercharger, whatever, it doesn't matter.

ok, b/c some people were tellin me my air/fuel would be put on the rich side and would cause problems and that the stock FPR wouldn't be able to keep it, which I guess would put stress on the fuel system?
