Default Fuel Riser un-install

This has been kind of hard for me to figure out. My car has been a pain in the *** to turbo mainly because it was a sebring supercharged car and swapping everything back over is takin some time.

Plus, i'm not the one who originally installed it so i'm going at it blind.

I'm goin to order MS soon and need to figure out what I need to do about the fuel pressure riser.

Do I just remove it and call it a day? Or is there some sort of stock peice that I need to re-install? This is my last step and I need to get it off soon so I can sell my old setup and buy more stuff.

I'm almost 100% sure it replaced the original. Whats making it hard is that the car came with a built motor, supercharger, and a bunch of **** and I have almost no idea exactly all that was done.

But.....i did pay only 300 bucks for it!

I'm almost sure that it replaced the original. I dont see any thing that looks like a factory unit, just the fuel lines running in and out of the fpr thats already on.

Any ideas or info guys? were to find a factory one?

there a junkyard thats close buy but is it worth getting one used or should i just buy a new one?

Take a picture of it. And take a picture of your fuel rail so we can see if the Factory FPR is in place.

and learn how to post pics. that previous link "This photo cannot be viewed because it has either been deleted or marked as private by the user. "

Judging by the engine pics on your myspace, it appears that you still have the factory FPR, unless if there is one hidden in a really stupid place. Look on the fuel rail, is there a round metal thing bolted to it? Trace the return line back from the FMU, it will go right to it. If thats the case, just take the FMU off and hook the lines back up to the factory hard lines.

I'm using a Vortech with a 6:1 disc in it along with my MS and 460's so I get higher pressure since my injectors are smaller than optimal.

nope. one of the points of going with the vortech was money. since that decision my salary just got cut in half so car expenses are taking a back seat.

Yeah, whenever I find something else about my car that I don't understand I freak out and post retarded questions instead of researching and figuring out that the oem fpr is on the FUEL RAIL!!!

oh well, just one more step to gettin my straight line monster ready.

Don't sweat it. When I went turbo I didn't know a thing about the fuel system and installed the FMU backwards, BEFORE the fuel rail. We all start somewhere.
