Installed my Homemade RR this weekend!!!

Well, I have been ordering fittings and hoses and have been collecting parts for a while. I have looked at numerous photos and read a few right-ups. This thing went off without a hitch. I replaced all the fuel lines with -06AN Size lines. -06AN goes from the Pump, to the engine then y's off to the heads. The return is a -06AN line. The power difference is amazing. It pulls way harder under WOT. Great mod if your a DIY type of guy. Prolly $400 in the whole thing. + the sump which i built for free.

Looks great! The mounting for the pump looks like a good spot for a fulelab

Re: Installed my Homemade RR this weekend!!!

All of the brackets I fabbed Myself. The filters and bases were ordered online directly from WIX. I am going to keep a couple extra sets of filters on hand that I will order from a local tractor dealership.

The fuel Lab can be thrown in place of the Walbro @ anytime. (i left room for improvement).

Good looking set up. It is easier than it sounds once you start tearing into it.

Re: Installed my Homemade RR this weekend!!!

Stocker w/ Upgraded Compressor Housing, Exhaust Housing and WW. Still feels tight. I just checked it when I had everything off. And she has seen 28-30 psi a few times and tow's often. Im going to run it till its on its last leg.

I believe im ready for Injectors now.

My guess is that last leg will come pretty quick after that...
