Well shit, send me the measurements/pictures. Sounds like something I could easily CNC.

Fuck 18 is a gift

E85 would be nice, better cheaper O rating and cleaner burning as long as you are stainless which is a given.

Shame E85 is only available past the Mississippi in vast quantities i'd try it.

I believe it's patented.

Crazy beautiful design though. It's a fuckin work of art that you stick in your gas tank and hopefully never see again.

Fore isn't currently producing it for whatever reason. but another company picked up their design.

http://www.lethalperformance.com/03-...nifold-p-37291

Division X is the company. And it's 50 bucks cheaper than the Fore fuel hat. Now I've heard Fore is going to pick up production again in the near or distant future, but believe me, it's one of the most beautifully machined parts I have ever seen,

They also used to produce a rear diff cover that looked like it could withstand an atomic bomb.

We ran my buddy's Cobra up to Maryland a few months ago and without getting into boost we got an average of 18.5mpg.

Stay out of boost and you get pretty good gas mileage. Hit it hard and you don't. It's not like his glorified F150 is special in that department.

Actually, it kinda is, I can't get more than 12 even if I granny it around. getting 18-20 is quite special, especially for those aerodynamic bricks.

I decided since it was labor day that I'd drive down to the shop and actually put some labor in.

Out with the old


Got some really nice 90 fittings that had adjustable bulkheads so you could rotate the output easily.


Now for the weatherproof butt connector action


Loomed and ready to go in


-10 AN Feed and -8AN return ready for action


10 Micron Areomotive inline filter installed. I took the stock filter bracket and re-drilled the frame and mounted it outside for easier accesibility.


All in all a very productive day. Now I'm just waiting on my heads to get finished, and then I can get my engine assembled and get back to some 4 Valve Turbo Love Action.

Yay!

I have to ask, tho: how does that billet aluminum stuff hold up to the ethanol in fuel? I've heard it tends to not like it much.

From what I've read billet is just fine in E85
