Default Quick fuel pump question

The car i have once had a supercharger, NOS, and 30 lb injectors. I wanted to check what size fuel pump is in it so i took loose the fuel line at the rail and jumpered the relay so the pump would fill a half gallon container. It filled it in 30 secs, making it run 1 gal/min or 60 gal/hr. This equates to about 227 lph. Am i correct in assuming this is at least a 190 lph pump? Or is it just pushing so much because of no restriction?

You're right. You need more injector though, from the sounds of it. Unless your NOS is a wet kit.
