um the fuel line looks to be wrong, is the afpr after the stock fpr is so then you are right in the way it is hooked up if not then you are clamping your feed line and this is not good. dunno with the bov looks good to me.

ok calm down dude, breath in ---------out ok now you have a fuel rail and towards the rear of the rail where the vacuum line attaches is the stock fpr the line running from this is what should go into the afpr. Wiggle this line or trace it other wise and report back and above all this is very important breath you gotta calm down dude this is totally simple but you need to be calm enough to listen to us. we are here to help.

For set-up pictures you can always check out the vBGarage for underhood pics. That's what I do for a quick visual confirmation.

I think Mag-5 has you covered. Do what he says, lol. Theres a pic here too:

no, reverse the lines on the fmu. from the fuel rail to the FMU offset, from the center fitting back to the return hard line.




remove the vacuum plug on your bov too.

Shes running amazingly, im really impressed.

I honestly didnt expect that kind of power at 5psi, im hanging right with my friends civic hatch w/ a prelude swap (H22A1), my friends eclipse gsx, and i smoked a few domestics.

Few quick questions still.

1. The bov still sounds kind of... i wouldent call it a turkey at all anymore. You can hear air escaping kind of high pitch like, about 4 times. Like chh chh chh chh. Ive adjusted it to no avail, and i flipped the bov around so the line isnt getting pinched by the hood. I dont mind the sound at all, its kind of cool- but is this bad? What can i do to fix it?

2. What psi do you guys think is safe to be running at with only 1.6l injectors, and a vortec? Can i go to 7? Either way what should be my next step for more psi's, my setup is in my sig... I have a Bipes, and when i install that id like to be seeing 10 psi soon, just trying to go down the right path.

Thanks again guys, you have no idea how much you have helped me out through this whole process.

Do you still have that vacuum plug on the lower port? If so take it off. Then just try to let out the adjustment screw all the way and see if that doesn't help. If it does then tighten it back up to the point where it just starts to flutter and back it off a tad.

Do the math for yourself. the max your FP can output is 75psi, so figure that 203cc injectors can handle maybe 130rwhp. And you're probably close to that.

Bigger injectors for sure. The stock fuel pump will flow enough fuel for 10PSI on the greddy kit. Slap some 1.8 injectors or 305cc supra injectors in and up zee boost, befvor ze chermans get 'ere!

You might as well start with the 1.8s cause you can always sell them again. Do you have a fuel pressure gauge to check the strengh of your stock fuel pump?

Get a wideband too, like an LC-1. Your going to get one eventually anyways and this way you can safely up the boost.

AHh, all very valid points.

I think yeah im going to go with 1.8 injectors- but the dreaded clutch slip is happening now. The clutch has like 8k miles on it, and cant even ******* handle 5 psi. It slips in 3rd and fourth right when it hits boost. Oh well, gonna tackle that first i guess, and i think im going to have to go with an ebay clutch since im so poor, and i didnt get the jump on that act one in the for sale place- haha.

Wish me luck, lots of it.

(no i dont have a fuel pressure gauge, and i do want a wideband!)
