its not really how many pumps its how much weight... but yea with 8 bats you might need some reinforcing.... but it also depends on how much voltage you are running on each pump...

i dont have a problem with prohopper cylinders.... but if you run like over 60 volts then yea you might break the stock coils... but if not you more than likely wont have a problem ...

your not gonna hop a 65 impala on stock coils well maby a few inches plus it will bottom out when it comes down cause the coils are to soft unless your really good on the switch and the coils might break
