    i had this sensor and was even mapped to the car but didnt make any difference as i only hit 22psi in 4th gear doing over 140+km/h

    The standard one will do just fine mate.

    It can make the car run lean.

    I know you are changing the fuel pump, I would do the pump and then put the map sensor on before you have the map tweaked at Regal. That way it will be ok fuelling wise. For £40 I would do it.
