Vortech S-fmu

if you have 300 bucks to spend.

some people use the cartech and preset FMU from Vortec or other companies. personally I like the S-fmu. I have one sitting in my garage yet ot be installed but my friend had one on his Turbo EX it was fun to play with to say the least. setable on vacum and boost.

10-1 is WAY too high.... 6-1 and 4-1 are the ones that people use.... I had the 6-1 plate in mine, prior to the most recent build up and it worked very well....

All vortechs fit. I think most of them use simple AN fittings too.

actually people say i should just use SX fuel pressure regulator or Paxton fuel pressure regulator (adjustable fuel pressure regulator), instead of using Vortech Rising Rate Fuel Pressure Regulator b/c i have got a Tec II on my car.
Does all SX or Paxton fit our car?
