just buy a used vortech from someone and run those injectors at higher pressure in boost. Tom and Bruce were making over 200rwhp with the EMB/FMU combo.

Sorry no pics as of now but I'll grab some tom and post em up soon.

So the aeromotive 1:1 rising rate regulator would have worked then? Well maybe not cuz it was only 40-70 base pressure adjustable...

I do I go about running one with the stock one there, I imagine I'll have to remove it and rig something up..

I didn't want to run an afpr cuz i heard they were unreliable and finiky..

Your stock FPR is a 1:1 also. If you want to raise fuel pressure beyond stock, you'll need something else, like BEGi's or Vortec's AFPR/FMUs.

Dean, I might have a BEGI AFPR forsale. It looks like the previous sale has backed out. I just rebuilt it with the kit from Bell.

PM me if you are interested.

Well my manifold is getting tiged up right now, b done tom as will the diff (just had to get the bushings swapped) ya for me!

So running some nice high (like 100psi) fuel pressure will give enough fuel so my next bottleneck would b the turbo, not the fuel system...

Manifold is finished and looks good, they even ported it out afterwards, which is expected but nice none the less. (Pics will b up this evening)

Picked up fittings today, still need drain flange though..

Oil drain is -8an and feed is -3an...Got a 45 for the pan fitting aswell. Someone want to confirm these sizes are adequete for the t25?

Everyone seems to run -4's but they didn't have the metric fitting for the block in -4..

Next is find a drain flange, clock turbo (center housing), (get down pipe rewelded maybe, as the welds are a joke) and tap pan..
