    Fuel Rail Question

    I am installing the FAST fuel rails along with my new intake. Since FAST didn't include much in the way of hardware or instructions, I am left fabricating most of the system. My question is in regards to the pressure regulator. Since it is integrated into the stock fuel rails, does anyone have a suggestion for an aftermarket regulator?

    The object you see in the middle cross over of the stock rails is NOT a regulator. Your fuel regulator is incorporated into the fuel pump assembly that is inside your tank.

    Basically all you need are some AN fittings/hose. There are companies that sell the Fitting/Hose Install Kit complete with all the proper fittings you will need to plumb the crossover line and go directly to your stock metal fuel lines with the feed line. If you want to run a FPG on the PS rail, let them know when you order and they will set you up with the correct fitting to install this also.

    Some that come to mind is Nasty Performance and Speed Inc.

    That's great to hear! What is the device on the stock fuel rails?

    It's supposed to dampen the fuel pulses in the line

    So, is it something that I can live without? Will it cause problems if I don't move it over to the new fuel rails?

    No problems whatsoever - in fact there is no way to use it with aftermarket rails.

    I have the FAST rails on my 2K WS6 - used the Nasty Performance Fuel Rail Install kit that included all the fittings and the SS braided hose to plumb the crossover between the rails, from the stock metal fuel lines to the DS rail, and a special fitting to use my FPG on the PS rail.

    Awesome! How much did the kit cost? How did you mount the solenoid on the return line?
