Should be a piece of cake. Axel swap was no big deal, I don't anticipate any problems.

Ok, so we are probably going to be changing out my current fuel system...

We are looking at the Aeromotive Return System... with all the associated parts required to run it with some longevity... Rather than trying to reinvent the wheel, we are looking at pricing for this system.

The regulator we will be getting compensates for the ambient air pressure so when you go into boost, it increases the fuel pressure lb for lb as the boost increases... There is a reference line to the regulator...

Still waiting on UPS to show up with my clutch, hopefully by lunch so we can get started going back together when we get back from lunch....

If you need any component or setup info, just yell. We have done many Aeromotive systems. Both SST and FB use A1000 for primary and Eliminator for secondary with these regulators: http://aeromotiveinc.com/products-pa...efi-regulator/

I know of all people you know this (with all of the high pressure stainless systems you have installed) but make sure you use sufficient diameter for good volume.

Man, that is pretty impressive.... but it's not available yet according to their web site..

We went with the Aeromotive Stealth 1000 (800 lb/hr)set up.. including the controller, the regulator and new fuel rails... -8 supply and -6 return. We'll start with -8 feed and go to a -10 if needed...

As before, the regulator has a boost reference port, so that as we get into boost, the regulator will increase lb/lb as the boost increases to keep a relatively neutral feed reference...

ie: at no boost, the regulator is feeding 60 psi... at 5 lbs of boost, the regulator ramps up to 65 psi, at 18 lbs of boost, the regulator will ramp the pressure up to 78 psi... What this equates to is nice steady state fuel feed across the board...

That looks gorgeous. It's sometimes amazing to me how so many cool things are tucked away where they'll never be seen...
