Doesn't seem to be running right. You should probably ship it down here to allow me to conduct further testing on it and confirm whether or not it is running correctly :naughty:

Snapped a few pics with the new wheel/Tire Setup.

Been working on alot of motor stuff lately. Most of thats finished up so i finished a project i started YEARS ago. I think it came out pretty good! Sits flush with the top of the car, Made from 4130 1" x .083" and 1/2" X .0625 tubing. Very Rigid and roughly half the weight (if not less) then the targa panel.

Haha thanks man.

The Precision 1200cc injectors were running up into the 90's for duty cycle in the mid 20psi range and since i am planning on turning it up, i figured i needed something bigger.

Stepped it up to FIC 2150's!

Problem i ran into, as you can see, is the injectors are slightly longer. These are the 14mm injectors for a GTE, but have 11mm orings on the tops. The stock lower grommet fits on the bottom. I used nylon spacers under the fuel rail on top of the existing spacers to get the proper amount of spacing for these injectors. The spacers were about 1/16 inch thick.

Havnt Had much to update, Made a fuel rail from a blank along with some sweet billet aluminum brackets and nylon spacers. I also got some new pics, painted up the targa brace, and got new tires!

nice build, and very good times.

about the injectors/fuel rail - why did you adjust the positon of the rail, rather than machine new injector ends/bosses? I thought the blue part of the injector came off, so they just have a different one for different cars, using the same core injector? not saying you did anything wrong, just curious.

also, any closeups of the targa brace where is mounts to the body? Any plans to sell them?

Looks great with the new meat on the back. Man that setup looks really agressive!

Thanks man! This is a new rail. The stock GE rail only has a 3/8" Bore. I never had an issue with it, but it just always seemed small to me. The new rail has a 3/4" Bore, PLENTY of flow.

I built/machined the new rail to the same specs as the stock rail as far as injector spacing. The only difference is the height of the rail off the mounts. These injectors are set up originally for a 2JZGTE 14mm setup. With 11mm O-rings and the stock GE rail, a 1/16" shim needed to be added to the three stock plastic spacers or else the O-Rings would have been too deep into the rail possibly falling into the through bore.

The new rail blank has .500" from the bottom surface, to the inside through bore. Because of this the rail could sit lower onto the injectors. So when i designed the brackets, i used the tallest spacer i could fit to act as a heat barrier between the rail and the manifold. The result is the rail is as low as possible onto the top of the injector, but the spacers are as tall as possible for maximum heat barrier.

I stuck with 11mm Injector bores, and close to "off the shelf" injector height/spacing so that if i ever want to change injectors, they're a direct bolt in swap.

I could get some more pictures of the brace. I dont have any plan to sell them. Its a fair amount of work and would have to be expensive to make it worth the time it takes to make.
