should I really just be making a dual feed rail at 250-300whp?

There is no telling where I'm going to leave the boost set.

Dual feed is kind of funny because of where the FPR goes. I've been nagging tunertoys to make a high volume 99 style rail. Single ended would be fine with the extra volume.

I've got Keith's book if you want to borrow it.

Edit: Nevermind. Sounds like you have everything.

I think that would be a good move. Anyone who's after power is using this motor anyway.

For the pullies, if you have the earlier 1.6, you will need the alternator of the 94-97 because the belts are different. At least that's what I heard

Since you are running with the MS, you should also see about getting an M1, 1.8 alternator. The problem is, the 99+ one will be with the ECU controlling the voltage. M1 1.8's have it still on the alt.

Dave,

Poop. I was almost right.
I highly suggest the fuel rail information in this thread get's added to POST#2 in the FAQ so future '99 owners have the details immediately accessible. I'll be one of them in a year or so.

Since he's got MS, why not just leave the 1.8 coils in place and run 'em as-is?

It would be a matter of wiring it up (different pigtails) and building a tacho driver. Might as well do the Toyo cops.

My fuel rail solution used the Yo-Yo man's Dual feed, fuel rail and a generic fuel pressure regulator off of ebay. it works great.

Hustler, 1.8 alternators are easy and cheap to come buy, it would save you some hassel if you used the 94-97. Try to find an automatic one if you can, more amps.

what bracket should I use then, and will I have to mod it? I do not have the 99 bracket. I assume that I can then use the 99 pullies.

I originally planned on using the 1.6 bracket from some write-up. I need to just go to my parents house and hope to remember what that big box of parts looks like...of course everything else is in a labeled bag.
