I meant that that hose with the Red Circle goes to the outlet of the FMU. Is that right?

hmm okay i think this would be easier if someone just posted pictures of how they ran their lines. Do you think you can take a few pictures?

Thanks!

Basically your putting the APFR on the return line. So, take that goes from the firewall side of the rail and goes into the hard line and connect that to the AFPR in. Then take the AFPR out and connect that to the hardline you just undid, that's it.

  • Hard line without any marks (no white mark)... to FP gauge (optional) to front input on Fuel Rail (stock connection)
  • Rear output of fuel rail to input on new AFPR (I believe the JR one I had... was centre in)
  • Output of AFPR to the White Marked hard line

Don't have any pics, since I don't have the AFPR installed anymore, and well, didn't have it for long either.... hopefully, that will help.

Dave,
