Because this engine is "special" and has the TGV delete manifold, the Aeromotive fuel rails interfer with the AVSC solenoids (blue plug).



However, by spacing the intake manifold up ~16mm I was able to clear the plug. I order a set of 16mm phenolic spacers from KSTech and everything clears like it should.



The second problem with the Aeromotive fuel rails are the mounting brackets. Again, because they are supposed to be mounted to a TGV they don't fit my Spec-C manifold. Therefore I had to fab up a pair of brackets to secure them. Here you can see the difference between the new brackets and the ones that came with the kit.



Here they are on the engine...all good.
