I changed my mind for other very specific reasons. Now that I've kinda given up on those reasons I'm having a hard time not changing back.

Lots of really good reasons to do it, not a lot of reasons left not to.

<p>You should be fine&nbsp;without an AFPR, you have ID1000s. You do need an NA FPR though to do return fueling.</p><p>You're fuel rail is a &quot;99-00&quot; right? Not sure what the MSM rail is.</p>

<p>Yeah, ID1k's on pump, no E85, with a wally 255. I shouldn't have any issues with the lower pressure. I don't know which rail I have, I'm sure Josh knows.</p><p>In search of an NA FPR then. This is seeming like it'll be super easy. Hopefully that ends up being the case.</p>

Think I have one in here somewhere...



I think the msm has a vvt rail. You'll need a 99-00. Is the pulse damper on the front? If so you have the correct rail.

Alright. Got a '99-00 fuel rail off eBay and getting the '94-97 fpr from Josh. Should be all I need other than connectors and some fuel line. Woot.

<p>Need some advice, gents.</p><p>I finally understand the fuel routing. It's really quite simple indeed, especially without doing an AFPR.</p><p>I removed the regulator from the tank. Is this OK, or do I need to make it dump the fuel lower? Originally it has the FPR and a little hose. Should I hack off the FPR mount and put a hose on it again?</p><p>How it came:</p><p><img src="http://cimg5.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.miataturbo.net-vbulletin/576x1024/80-img_20150809_114643272_hdr_43c45b98cf1690d699f4902 9d973eac5018628fb.jpg" title="" /></p><p>How it is now:</p><p><img src="http://cimg1.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.miataturbo.net-vbulletin/576x1024/80-img_20150809_114650896_hdr_3c12620b15ae06ab5eb7e7b f18de0bdca5cf0c61.jpg" title="" /><br /><br />Can I just let it dump in like that?</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>SECOND QUESTION:</p><p>Turbo drain routing. I'm swapping oil pans because this one got cracked in the first accident. Need to decide where I'm doing the turbo oil return in the new pan. Here's the current setup, freakin funky:</p><p><img src="http://cimg7.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.miataturbo.net-vbulletin/1024x576/80-img_20150809_162220570_c46bb446657548cf940ca4508d7 4b76fd3acc0f3.jpg" title="" /><br /><br />more zoomed out:</p><p><img src="http://cimg0.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.miataturbo.net-vbulletin/1024x576/80-img_20150809_162234099_8f7b9d7fbf63b38bc0410fea437 57f4d47071e64.jpg" title="" /><br /><br />&nbsp;</p><p>That funky routing was because super low mount and the car had PS and A/C. I will no longer have PS or A/C. There's a small chance I'll add PS back in at some point.</p><p>Thinking about using FM's oil drain spot, further forward and down from where it is now.&nbsp;What do you all think? Josh, we gotta get this sorted before we put the motor in, would hugely appreciate&nbsp;your input.</p>

<p>I think FM's spot is the only one that will work with your turbo so low.</p>
