that intake looks strangely familiar. where did you get it?





and strangely enough i scratched my intake in the same place as that scratch on top of your intake when i was removing my motor to sell it a few years ago

They do look alike, i bought mine locally off of craigslist, it was black when i bought it, i sprayed it with high temp grey wheel paint.  the mark was caused from the bracing under the hood, i had to trim a little of the bracing to make it clear.

yes ive seen that before, i also seen it before i bought these injectors and also seen people "talking" on forums about how they dont work on single valves,  But i had also talked to a few that were actually running them with success, with out a hiccup.  I figured i would try them and see for my self, bc theres alot of people on forums that like to jump on the bandwagon and tell you something wont work and then tell a hundred people it wont work when they have never tried it before, and then it gets all the internet hype cranked up about it. Im not implying that towards you, im just ranting, its kind of like when i was asking about running on the stock tune with boost, i had lots of guys chiming in  telling me it wont work, thats dumb,  and that it will blow unless its "dyno tuned"  then a hand full of guys chimed in that had been doing it for years without problems.

  so for the price i paid i thought they were worth a shot, and i havent had an issue yet.

Not to thread jack or anything I got the same intake with stock valve covers painted grey metallic. Looks identical I have never seen these pics before I thought I was unique. Damn it. I was looking in the parts store and saw the color and was like hey this will look good on the intake then I had to do the valve covers to match.

so just the intank pump? I have an inline but never put it in. dont think I plan to either.

I got some t-bird rails. they are like 94/95 rails. awesome budget upgrade. Im pretty sure they take a fox style regulator though. 3 screws from the bottom. iircmy 95 has 2 screws from the top

theres a pic in my lounge thread of the rails
