    Re: My first time

    Good option on using the factory FPR. I forgot about that. SOS sells a machined fitting that allows you to fit a stock OEM FPR on the CT fuel rail. If you already have big injectors why not..

    This reminds me.. I need to post my FS ad for my RC500s . If anyone is looking for a freshly cleaned and and flow tested set lmk.

    Re: My first time

    The car goes in the shop in three weeks. I still need to place my last orders but it's surprisingly hard to give my money away. Places are either not resonding to email or very slow to respond.

    I'm going to have the intake and that air intake piece that the TB connects to powder coated and still need to get the powder off the blower.

    You should really consider running Cats, there is really no effective way to ensure you will not see a CEL for cat efficiency without them. If you want to try it you will need to take extra steps to try and get around the possible CEL. In my option it is not worth the extra 5-10whp to not have them and then deal with random CEL's.

    all you need are spark plug anti foulers. I have not gotten a cell yet not once. Living in FL I never run cats

    Yes they are built in and I think he guarantees no cel but I had mine made and used the anti foulers cost me $200. The anti foulers are $6 and pipe is cheap so if you know someone that welds you can build them very inexpensive

    Hey Dave Thanks,
    I purchased the exhaust and test pipes before deciding to go FI and haven't really thought about it again. Before, i knew i could always go back to the Cats if i needed to but now i definately don't want to chance having to re-tune if i had to go back. More to think about.

    Re: My first time

    Hey guys, i have a couple of questions.

    1. I have the updated fuel lines from CT. If i install this fuel line fitting in the fuel filter to get rid of the banjo bolt, dave said i need to have the fuel line modified for the AN fitting. Wondering if i already have a fuel line that will work since I am not using the CT FPR and should have lines that won't be used. I have two long fuel lines the same size, one with a banjo bolt and the other with screw fittings on both ends. Will one of these work for the length and fittings?

    I know i need the short line between rails and i think i only need one more but not sure.



    2. I remember people saying something has to be removed from under the intake depending on low/high boost. They even said it was better to relocate it for the future. Only thing i see is a switch, is that what they are talking about?

    Thanks
    Mike

    If you replaced the banjo bolt at the filter you will need a hose with -6AN at both ends, if you use the OEM FPR on the CT rails you will need to clamp the hose at the FPR and the hard return line on the passenger side near the strut tower.

    On the older CT manifolds they used a HOBs switch to trigger the BAP when the car went into boost, if you are changing to the 1:1 FPR, Walbro, and larger injectors you will not need the BAP or the HOBs switch. You can remove the HOBs switch and add an additional barb fitting for a second VAC refference in case you want to run a boost gauge or something else. Or you can leave it there and just remove the wires going to it.

    Re: My first time

    Hi Dave,
    Here is what i received. Looks like i need a new one for between rails.

    So the only other one i need is like the one on the left? It's about 24" long and i'm guessing it goes from rail to filter. You think it will be too long?

    The return line will just be a hose clamped on both ends?




    I will remove the HOB switch.

    Thanks
    Mike

    Re: My first time

    Do you have your FPR handy and have you purchased the AN fittings for that? If you can throw that in the picture it'll be easier to piece this together for you.

    Getting ready to go Summit to get the earl's adapter for the filter and thought if i still need hoses i could get them while i'm there.

    The FPR will be OEM attached to the rail with the SOS adapter, it needs fuel line adapters too?

    Mike
    You can see in your pic; 3rd hose from the left. Notice the double hose clamp. That's what Dave mentioned will connect to your fuel return line near the shock tower.

    You'll basically need a line that exits the fuel return exit from your FPR and into that hard line near the shock toward. You have it there I'm just not sure about your fittings.

    If you mount your FPR in the same firewall location (by drilling mounting holes like the CTSC/Vortech RRFPR requires) then those lines will likely be of proper length. If you plan to mount it somewhere else on the other hand....
