Default talk about fuel rail...

I'm after a dual feed fuel rail, looked at FM dual feed kit and also m-tuned kit.

any recommendations? is FM one any better than the M-tuned? and vice versa?

I thought about doing it DIY style but whenever I try to do DIY stuff I end up putting it aside and it will never happen.

lazyness ftw.

I have the m-tuned and it works great, but I really like the fittings on the FM.

do a coolant reroute instead, stock fuel rail will flow far beyond what your injectors are capable of, dual feed rails were originally used to cure problems with detonation in cylinder 4 from overheating, fuel wasn't the issue, cooling was.

^Agreed, especially if you're running stock pressure in the rail. I might see where somebody running way more than stock fuel pressure, like over 100psi might feel the piece of mind that perfectly even pressure across each fuel injector was worth the $10 it takes to DIY a stock rail... but nothing will convince me that $100+ is worth it unless I was running 1000cc injectors and making huge power.
For the money, nothing beets DIY... and I guarantee, if you're asking, you don't need a production rail.

And FWIW, I don't think there's an easier DIY project. A dill press makes drilling the rail a piece of cake, but most of us do it simply clamped in a vice. About 2 feet of fuel line and whatever fittings you're going to use goes together in about 30 seconds. The routing is retarded simple if you're not using a RRFPR.

Do it DIY, and spend the big bucks on something produced that is a pita to DIY, like a reroute.
