Extra weight? j/k
I have no clue, but it works that way.


Sam-you needz dual feedz like crack

The rail carries appx. 4x the volume of the stocker.
Question, lets put our heads together on this one.
For the 94-97 only for now.
Would there be any benefit to have the FPR located in the middle of the rail since we have feed from both ends? Or would it not make a difference since the FPR stay shut until pressure is reached and there is no flow at that point.
Discuss.

Makes no difference. Keep it where it is to simplify installation.

Because they don't idiot.

But lets not bring up this old argument again. You run your dual feed, and ill just take the larger bore.

How about a discount if you opt for only one feed port?

WTF? I'll see what I can do for the 99+ or 01+, but let's get something started for now. Chances are, we'll figure out how to make the NB's as well.


I just talked to the guy, so here is an update.

The fuel rail:
-appx. four times the volume of stocker
-comes with no fittings
-the ends will be threaded (-10AN) for you to either cap one end or run a dual feed with your -10AN to barb or whatever fitting (Sam, it would cost more to have only one hole b/c it would be a one off vs. everyone elses being mass produced, well sort of) they are all dual feed but you can cap yours if you are special like that.
-looks like we can keep it at or around $80 plus actual shipping.

I am sending him my fuel rail for mock up etc.
If this kicks off, we can then work on rails for other years as well.
Price is kick ***.

It is time to **** or get off the *******.
Who will commit to buying one if we get this thing rolling.
This would be a typical GB where we need an upfront order of several rails and then he will probably carry a few at a time. Do not spread this to other miata forums yet since this guy can't make a lot of them at once and I don't feel like waiting for 2 months for the first batch to ship out.

well if they want a 99-rail to mock up, they can use mine. I'd love to get this **** done because I have my **** half-hard to finish my car, before I move to Seattle to get away from all the white trash hill billy ------s here who can't stop vandalizing my green car.

If they want my rail, I'll paypal the money and get that ****** shipped tomorrow. If not I guess I'll just burn up a cylinder or two.

I love how the only person to step forward and guarantee to buy a rail is Hustler, and his year rail is not even up for sale yet. Damn cheap bastards! lol

Sweet, I'll let him know that we can have a NB rail as well, so once he has all the rails drilled and threaded, it will be only a matter of the mounting locations for the tabs and FPR and we are set for both I would say.
I'll PM you the address once I get it Hustler.

Possibly, but we'll worry about that when he has the rails ready as that is the most time consuming part, once he has a bunch of them made and threaded we'll send him a plenum if he needs it etc.
Take some pics of the rail and plenum in place so we can at least have an idea of proximity and talk about FPR placement ahead of time. We may need to use an extension for the FPR, I don't know how reliable or accurate that would be, but hell, it is all pressurizes, maybe it won't make a difference.

1st - 94-97 and 99+ rails are different! Getting 2 of them together will make this quite evident!

2nd - ETD is in the final stages of making a $99 budget rail and it won't have tabs welded onto it and be ghetto. Just an FYI!

why in the hell would you use dual -10AN lines? 5/8" low pressure line can flow like 18 GPM, which is good for like 1500 HP. -6AN would make far more sense.

Why upgrade the rail in the first place, our rails are plenty sufficient for our cars.
