*Disclaimer: I would never recommend doing this*

I ran up to 7 psi on my greddy before I switched over to bigger injectors so that was with a 12:1 disc in the Vortech so.. with stock fuel press. at say, 40psi or so + 84 psi added... yea, 124 psi (theoretically, though the pump probably was pushing all it could at 100) and although I knew in my head it was bad, the stock lines held just fine for as long as I ran it that way - about 9 months...

Haha... Pick me! Pick me! Ran well on my old DIY T25 setup... I'm only going to be using it now to keep my injectors a little smaller.

Granted, the rubber can hold the pressure just fine. But the bling factor with -AN fittings would be cool. Corky did look at using aluminum fittings, but the price would increase over $125. If ya'll are that serious, I can price it out with AN fittings and stainless lines. But I would expect the price that we are shooting for to double.

My car gets pulled in later this week for some updates. We will be putting in on my car after Tim gets a chance to flow test it. We will still need another test mule though.

Nice! Be sure to post plenty of pics on this, as this is extremely interesting and I have not bought a fuel rail for my project yet.

I know the rubber lines are fine, but if your going to fab up somthing like that to display you sould make the fuel lines as nice as the rest of the piece. I see nice fab work and oem hoses and clamps just seems a little tossed together..

Ok maybe I'm slow, but I don't get it. How is this better than a regular fuel rail? To me it just looks more complicated with additional points of failure.

Not being a hater, I honestly don't see it.

Nice welds.

I'll be in San Antonio next week if you need another test mule.

Seriously.

Not that I see the point, but for bling factor hard lines should be cheaper. They would make it look like a diesel too.

I don't know what I'm looking at in those pictures, other than the OEM regulator.

EDIT: ok after staring at it for a few secs longer I think I figured it out. Nice solution to your supercharger fitment issue; seems easy for the common folk to copy. Why would this be better than a "high flow"/large inner dia dual feed fuel rail, if space permits?

All that work... and they used the factory FPR? Wasn't there a BEGi FMU laying around somewhere in the shop?

More Photos.





It would, for sure, work with the MR FMU. Which is designed to replace the stock regulator.

Corky tells me it cannot be copied completely. Internally, on the spacers, is a fuel reservoir. It will hold the fuel available for when needed with for the next pulse.

Super nice work!!! Glad I haven't figured out my fuel solution yet, so I have options.
