Aftermarket fuel rails on mostly stock L99

First off I mainly want this to clean up the appearance under hood. Eventually I plan on needing more fuel but it may be a little while. I guess my question is will it hurt anything with the current mods in my sig? Will I run rich or will the extra fuel just be there in the rails? I am coming from the off road world and in the 90's had a 5.slow muffstang and parts have been very inexpensive. The after market for this car is generally expensive so I am not able to do a lot of mods at once as I have with my previous automotive endevors. Thanks in advance for your help with this.

No, it won't hurt anything....I am doing the same to mine right now. But like camaro1 said above, if money is tight, you can simply flip the OEM fuel rail 180 degrees and get a shorter fuel line. This is what I did for several months, and it does clean up the appearance alot. I do have an extra short fuel line from Tech AFX if you're interested.

The car most likely won't perform any differently at all...and the stock rails are fine at a LOT of power too...I agree on appearance, but the stock rails, in my opinion, look pretty nice if you clean them up thoroughly and do like the guys above mentioned...remove the stickers from them, polish them...winds up looking pretty nice and clean.

Great instructional PDF. It's not hard whatsoever. You might take a look at the tread I'm doing for more ideas.
