there was a time when I'd get all excited over a comment like that from you Joe.

then I see you doing nothing but messing with those faggy e-bikes and I get all flaccid.

So really your only excuse here is " AN makes my *** hard ". Nothing wrong with that. Just don't try to justify it with reason and logic because it wont work lol.
Yeah, it pretty much boils down to "AN gives me wood." I was just riffing on the rest of that crap.. But I still maintain that it transcends the ***** Shift Lever/Style Bar level of Useless Mod, even if its benefits wouldn't be seen until I more than double the current horsepower. Besides, you gotta cut me slack here; I spend 70 hours a week building old school hot rods, where every decision is weighed first in terms of its aesthetics and then by how it works, (I mean lets face it; nobody ever took 6" out of a Tudor's roof to make the car easier to get in and out of..) so there's bound to be some bleed-over into the Frankenmiata project. At least I'm not painting it matte black with flames with red steelies, trim rings and Portawhites. I think I'm showing remarkable restraint, if you ask me.

To actually get reliable data to work with I'd like for the rail to be in the same environment it normally operates in, at normal underhood temps, bolted to a heated metal mass as hot radiator exhaust air is blown directly on the front third of it. That sounds like a lot of work to setup, so I just threw on this stiffy-inducing BEGI piece instead and went about my life with a clear mind and a happy heart, no longer wracked by nagging fears about doing *this* to an engine ever again. Fuel supply?: check.

Great idea. Slap a Duvall on there, wire wheels, maybe some bitchin' neo-classic exhaust pipes out the fender?

Tee your fuel rail and injectors into another cars fuel system.

Collect fuel in 4 containers while doing a dyno pull.

And thats without any testing gear.

I got a better idea... hook up the injectors and point them all in different directions.. increase ur cranking fuel to 20ms and try to start the car.. see which direction has more fuel.
