Default DIY Dual Feed Rail Fittings

If anyone is interested, I did the DIY dual feed modification to the stock fuel rail a little different than most using AN fittings and stainless hard line. I figure one just wants a kit of sorts, this might help. Like all my other post, if you are interested just let me know. I should get some pictures uploaded shortly. Not sure on price yet, but it shouldn't be too bad.
The kit would include:
NPT to AN adapter
Stainless hard line with AN Nut
Required fuel line and tee
Hopefully this weekend I will get some pictures up so that it makes a bit more sense. The two pics below dont have the stainless hard line, just the adapter.

looks pretty good. If it's pretty reasonable I might have to pick one up as I'm headed for boosted land and would rather have what I can done to protect before rather than later.

Fuel rail painted gold looks pretty serious, might have to do that when I take mine out.

If only you posted two weeks ago before I used a barb fitting to make mine. :( Glad to see someone offering a kit now though.

Sorry man, I wish I would have thought about it sooner myself. Hopefully it will still benefit some. Did you ever get your fitting situation to work out?

Im sure this will help plenty, the whole time I was making mine I kept thinking how I would love the piece of mind of stainless lines. I do still have an extra rail.. Hm.. Maby if the price is right I will convert my spare using SS braided.

A member on here offered me that oil feed fitting for ten bucks, i think ill just buy that.

Well, it won't be using stainless braid, or at least I hadn't intended too. This will utilize stainless hard line, like my water line kits use. Glad you got fitting problem cleared up.

Oh so would it still use rubber line? I was thinking it would be like FMs new fuel rail setup, with braided lines.

Yea, it would use rubber fuel line to connect the hard line to the tee. I haven't seen FM's new stuff. Hopefully I can get a pic up soon.

I don't know why they chose to use purple for their products,are they trying to copy HKS?

red,blue,black,gold even bare machined aluminum would have looked nicer than purple.

Well, this would just be the fittings and hose required, and you would alter the stock rail yourself. I just showed my rail to give you an idea of how it looks.

So its just the fitting that you need to screw into the drilled and tapped rail and what hard line? I'm probably just confused but please clarify. Or a pic would be enough lol.
I can't imagine it costing much if its just a fitting and line...?
What size is the NPT to AN fitting and what diameter is the hard line?

The kit would include:
1/8" NPT to -6 AN adapter
3/8" Stainless hard line with -6 AN Nut
Required fuel line and tee
Like I said earlier it shouldn't be very expensive, but it will be more than just a 1/8 NPT to 5/16 barb which is what is generally used. I think once I get a pic of the whole thing, you will understand a lot better. Thanks Tim!

I'd probably be interested... I guess it will work on the 1.6 and the 94-97 1.8?
