Default SARD FPRegulator Question

First off i did a search already and got some info, but mainly stuff I already knew.

So today I bought a SARD Fuel Pressure Regulator, the normal model for about $75! The next model up, the Type-R, was about $180, not knowing the differernce I went for the cheaper one. It came with the fittings but not the adapter (more on this later). So after the search I found that the Type-R is for turbo cars, because it increases pressure per boost. Sounds good since its going on a Turbo RS...

But since I have the Tec-2 I'm pretty sure I don't need this, either way its too later Now the unit came with the fittings, so I know what attaches to what, and I'm pretty sure I can remote mount this thing...What I didn't get was the adpater for the fuel rail. It was for the EJ20 anyways so I figured it wouldn't work, plus the guys didn't really seem to help me much (PLUS the conversation was in Japanese so it made it a little more difficult )

ok here's my question... What do I need to make this work. I've read that when you remove the stock FPR you need to plug a hole. But that's what I don't understand, what hole? Ok so now what do I need to plug this hole with? Shiv once told me I could get some Nissan part from Summit racing or Weapon R or something like that, but i don't remember now...

Anyhelp appreciated, Also maybe if you could post a pic of your Stock FPR that might help me Being in Japan I can't just run out and look at my car, other wise I might understand more.

Here's a pic of what I bought.

Stock FPR attaches to the rear of the stock passenger side fuel rail.

This one pictured is the SVX but looks identical except the clocking of the vacuum port. To remove it is easier to remove the fuel rail due to the positioning of the screws.

And yes with the Tec2 it doesn't like Rising Rate. This throws off the fuel curve.

The plug must bolt into the place were the stock regulator goes. The stock one has a o-ring seal there so I guess the plug needs the same. Maybe with a hose nipple on the end, to attach a hose to the new FPR, I don't know.

Ok foolio!!!!!!!! Here is the drill! You can do a few things.....you can get the SARD flange and it WILL bolt right on.....you can get a Weapon R FPR flange that will BYPASS the stock FPR...........or you can run the stock FPR and then run this after the stock FPR.....in my car i simply cut the stock FPR flange off, welded on an AN fitting to the fuel rail, and simply ran a braided line with another AN fitting on the other end.........and screwed it onto the SARD...if you can ge the flange i will buy one from you! ALSO i need one of the SARD mounting brackets.....can you please get me one! LOL! Ethan ICQ me asap! I need to know WHAT numbers are written on the sticker on the SARD FPR, and also i need to see pics of how you hooked up the hydraulic hood lift! THANKS!
