My friend who went to school in Flint confirms this. He said he saw people die in the street, and was shot at more than once. Then he tried to get me to come visit him.

The first warm day of the year is the worst. I watched the police scanner tracker my Freshman year here in Flint, and in that one day saw over 30 reported shootings, with like 2 or 3 fatalities. I could hear 5 of the shootings from my dorm room, each with at least 10 rounds fired.

Detroit for some reason has a bad reputation. IMO Flint is much worse, even i don't venture into Flint and i've been known to go to to some sketchy places.

Dat motor vehicle theft.

I read somewhere the other day they arrested a car jacker and gave him like 93 years in prison.

Also, Flint has a population of less than 100k.

I love Flint. Cops don't care what the hell I do. I'm the least of their worries.

Got some stuff starting to trickle in.



I was drunk when i ordered the line and got -10 instead of -6. Which is okay, because my oil return is -10 and i'm really thinking about redoing it with the Startlite.

So, here's where i'm at i need a little input.

The FPR adapter i got is -3an(i'm not even sure if it's for a flared fitting, or o-ring). I'm also not sure i'll be able to get a 90* fitting on it since it's so close to the intake manifold.

I'm wondering if it's even worth the trouble to use the FPR port as a return. The rail has -6an inlets on each end. Would it even be efficient to have the return be -3? It seems like i may not be able to return enough fuel through that small port.
I think it would make more sense to run inlet one side of the rail and outlet on the other side. No restriction. (this car will never make 600hp, i don't NEED dual feed)
If so, how do i go about blocking off the FPR port? 3an plug off of the adapter i'm guessing?

The fuel return location on the FM rail is a massive fail. The only solution that worked for me was to use the stock FPR and AFPR after that. AN-adapter + 90deg AN-fitting is impossible.

Anything is possible.

I'm just wondering if it's worth the trouble.

Anyway, this is where i'm at with this malarkey.

Plans changed. I'm now going to plug the stupid -3an FPR port (what i was going use for return) and go single feed.
Props to Bryan at Fab9 for telling me about the Startlite hose. Non abrasive stuff. It's exactly what i want for not rubbing through other important stuff like regular stainless braided line would.

I wrapped the bit i was wrenching on with masking tape so i wouldn't mar it up to bad.




Here's where i ran into my first holdup.
I can't seem to get this fitting down far enough on the hardline. I think the line is out of round as it's so close to the bend. I'm either going to work it more and make it fit, or just cut it further down where it's more straight.


Pretty simple really.


I'm hoping it doesn't end in some horrible tragedy.

You know those fittings are only rated to 50psi right? I have the same ones (bought because I didnt even think to check the rating) and I also ended up making the connection near the frame rail. I used the vinyl covered braided stainless line though with graphite impregnated (for the static electricity) ptfe liners because fuel lines. IMO you really should just get a couple -5AN tube nuts and sleeves and a 5- to -6 male to male fitting and just flare the lines.

Yeah i say to hell with the compression fittings. (not that i haven't see them used in brake lines, talk about scary) I'll borrow a flange tool from work and go that route. Maybe i'll have enough room where the lines are currently, if not i'll just cut them further down along the "frame rail".

Got my injectors back. Freshly rebuilt and flow tested.
2 week turnaround time and $35. Not bad.



I'm on 7 days at work from now until who knows. I get Christmas day off, yay. At least i'll be bringing in some cash to get this finished up.

Found a little motivation the other night. This is kind of where i'm at.

Fuel feed goes up between the intake runners into a 175* fitting. Return fed back into the FPR and down into the hardline.

I have a plug for the FPR fitting in the mail. Once that gets here i'll reinstall the injectors and pressurize.

Any failures will be in the compression fittings. Anyone have some suggestions on flanged to -6an fittings? It's not to late to swap out, i've had a little bit of a difficult time finding some.

If this all works i'll install the DW300. I'm still reading up on current draw and such. 13v and 60psi will put me around 13a. This should be plenty safe on the OEM relay, fuse, and wiring.

If i'm thinking correctly, i can raise base pressure thus increasing line/head pressure to test my system?
