So I made a big decision while staring at my intake manifold and the hacked together mess I call a fuel rail.... I dont want that potential fire hazard on my car anymore.... I am currently looking into a budget alternative to the expensive aeromotive kits, it appears that LS1, LS6 fuel rails are a direct fit onto a SBF... lucky me because for some reason they are also much cheaper.
SNE-850005 holley rail kit $115 8an stuff
SUM-227152 summit rail kit $100 6an stuff
Both of these will fit my custom intake manifold and look good doing it, that leaves me with the decision of a fuel regulator.
Summit Racing SUM-220066 - Summit Racing® Aluminum Fuel Pressure Regulators
Aeromotive 13129 - Aeromotive Universal Bypass Regulators
MagnaFuel MP-9925-B - MagnaFuel EFI Fuel Pressure Control Units

Now i am going to need lines fittings ect....
the sizes will depend on the fuel rails we choose but this i think is a start. 6an stuff can easily feed my fuel needs.

Summit Racing SUM-220641B - Summit Racing® Couplers
Summit Racing SUM-220166B - Summit Racing® AN O-Ring to AN Adapter Fittings

Most of you guys know alot more about this stuff than i do @CarMichael Angelo if you were putting together a kit how would you do it/am i missing any pieces to this puzzle??

If at all possible i want to keep this in the realm of budget friendly but i dont want to cut any corners either.

I always draw a line flow chart so I can count what, and where each fitting needs to be/go.

Didn't get very far today but the pistons are in! Gapless rings take alot longer to file correctly but I hope it will be worth the effort involved.

pieces of rubber hose help keep the rod off of the cylinder wall and the bolts wont damage the crank either. This method makes the rod self centering on the journal. If you have never used one of these tapered piston compressors I suggest you buy one for your next rebuild, i will never use the adjustable type again.
