Oh ok well... stock NA FPR has tons of room on a VICS manifold using an M-Tuned rail.



Side question: What's the point of using a stock FPR if you have a fancy fuel rail?

I dunno, probably because the stock 1:1 unit works just fine on applications with appropriately sized injectors and thus you don't need to spend the money on an adjustable one?

Of course, us mere mortals are not running F2T power so our basis for comparison may be skewed.

I kindof meant that as a "Why upgrade the rail in this case" type question.

I've got a M-Tuned and a Vishnu somewhere in the garage and still haven't figured out what I want to do

Some new parts.




FM fuel rail should be here Monday, i've ordered the rest of the stuff to get my sequential spark set up. Hopefully that works. Then i'll start building this fuel setup.

One of these days i'll have to install this damper. Not looking forward to that job, so much crap has to come off. I should have just put one on when the engine was built.

Crap, I completely forgot to go look for my extra rail for you. Oh well, the purple FM one is rather pretty

More parts at the door today.



Old purple (swag) style fuel rail. I've never bought anything this "baller" before. The new ones are black and would match my FPR pretty nicely but i got this one at a good deal.

I forgot to get a blockoff plate for the stock FPR location with a 1/8" threaded hole in it. I'll probably just buy one on ebay.
I was planning on running full SS lines so i still have a bit of shopping to do to finish this fuel setup up.

I wanted to spend a bunch of time on the car this weekend but home ownership got in the way. Ended up doing a ton of work around the house instead. :( This winter was rough, so much stuff got broken. I was going to power wash the 6 speed but the line in the wall for the outside spigot must have froze, pissed water everywhere when i turned the water back on. Then i found out the power washer broke, quit pumping water. GRRR

I like to think i haven't forgotten about my car.
I went ahead and cleaned up all my little *****.

Did a bunch of "spring cleaning" on the NA just in case i'm able to limp it to the BBQ, a local event that's a pretty big deal i guess. If not i washed and waxed the NB and bike too. The NB may even fall apart before then it's self, some serious clunking going on in the rear end.

Single stage paint sucks.





This NB actually has a nice *** paint job. I'm beginning to like it. (the color not the car)






NB's can suck it.
It can't even handle a good beating under stock power, yet the NA can and doesn't complain one bit with much more miles and way more power.

I still have no updates other than i've been driving the **** out of the car.

Reverted back to OEM spark. Seems to be holding up well at 12psi. Still have a bunch of fuel parts sitting around, ATI damper, 6 speed, blah blah. Parts may get installed sometime.
Maybe i'll find a way to up the boost so that i NEED to install upgrades.

I went down to Mexico to play with a cobra mustang.

It's amazing they'll close just any street in Mexico for racing.


To be honest, the drag strip was closed. For some reason the farm boys at work invited me out to play with their muscle cars. So we played a little. It was a drivers race. My gears were so short it was like rowing a ******* canoe. From a dig, first and second were over with before i could think. I beat him a few more times by about a car length off camera. Not that this car is set up for straight line nonsense so who cares.

I'm in the anodizing business now. So i'm going to try and get my intercooler and maybe a few other miscellaneous things anodized black.

This is relevant to my interests, I'd love to hear/see how the IC comes out.

The heck was going on in that video? Is the mustang driver new? First race isn't even lined up and rolls into it so I'm pretty sure he started at a higher speed. He also always takes the jump. I can't stand races like that. Like when I had a guy on Woodward try to go from a dig, he had drag radials, I'm on a street tire and he shut it down at the top of second because I was reeling him in hard and he didn't want to lose.

Also loll'd at him in that dig race

Did I miss the reasoning behind ditching the FAB COP system?

None of the races were even... Neither of us could hook, sometimes i was in the wrong gear, sometimes he was in the wrong gear, sometimes i missed shifts blah blah. One of these days i'll be getting to the track for perfect races.

COP's don't work with my MS. It makes my car run like **** and they don't work under boost. I'm leaving Bryan in charge of figuring it out.

One of the best parts of my job is the amount of titanium we use.
We use so much titanium we throw it away by the 50 gallon drum.







We do a lot of trijicon work too.
ACOG scopes. A while back they brought in a bunch of guns for us to play with.


Oh and some EFR's.
Not sure what's going on with them though.
