    Typhoon intake fuel pressure(help)

    Somebody please help! I just installed a typhoon intake on my98 ss ls1 and I was told by mumerous people I do not need a fuel pressure reg. Because I only have 1 fuel line. When I tirned the key on today, fuel leaked badly out of every corner of the fuel rails and I evem applied thread sealant to all pipe thread style fittings. I dont know if that fuel damper or whatever it is on tje stock fuel rails means I have to install some type of reg. And how would I do tjat with only one fuel line?at first I didnt have the rails tightened down, and the pump blew tje rails right off,after tightening,leaked out of every sealed,tight corner of the rails.what is going on? I get so much different info about what exactly that device is located on the stock fuel rails.please help”

    Mine leaked when I was first installing it, but it was because the injectors weren't fully pushed into the ports as they should have been. Other than that I didn't have any problems.

    I did, it seems to accelerate a lot faster. I will probably be selling mine and going with a fast intake, as my injectors melted. Not sure if the intake was the cause yet.
