Question Fuel setup help!

Im in the middle of collecting parts for my build and I am ready to start purchasing the fuel system stuff. My question is, What do I need?

Car is a '95.

For starters,
  • '95 Forged bottom end (9.5 supertechs, wiseco rings, eagle rods)
  • '99-00 Built head (P&P, Big cams, +1mm valves, dual springs and SUBs)
  • Turbo (gt3071)
  • LSx Coils
  • MS3 Pro or AEM (havent decided yet)
  • ID1000s
I have everything but the EMS and turbo so far. I just dont know what I should do for the rest of the fuel system. I want everything to be E85 compatible because I may want to go this route in the future. I also have a meth injection kit that can be used to help with detonation for pump gas use. (E85 is kinda a PITA to get around here). I have FM dual feed rail too. Still need to find out if it can be used on the newer head. Havent looked into that just yet. If not I will buy another.

Any advice would be appreciated.

<p>Megasquirt, obviously.</p><p>PTFE hoses and fittings</p><p>DW300 pump</p><p>Go ahead and install a flex fuel sensor while you're in there</p><p>If you're running a decent amount of boost, get an AFPR as you may overwhelm the stock one.</p>

Or you could use a 190 pump and not overwhelm the stock fpr. With 1000' s depending on boost he should be fine, no?

<br />&nbsp;</p><p>He hasn't said a power level. I'm assuming&nbsp;ALLOFIT, which would make the DW200 (255lph) extremely close to not being enough. Anything less doesn't seem worthy of a 3071.</p>

E85 on a 3071 is a lot of fuel.

<p>Aeromotive 340 stealth pump, hands down. and an Aeromotive regulator. You choice on lines and fittings, but get something rated for the ethanol.&nbsp; Also check out Red Horse fittings.&nbsp; They're priced cheap similar to Summit fittings, but the quality is much better.&nbsp;</p>

Yes I plan on pushing this setup to see what it can do. I am surprised the Walbro 450 wasnt mentioned. Would that be just way too big?

Thanks for the heads up on another source for fittings. This will come in handy.
