If you convert to a 4runner or 4x4 toyota bumper and valance you will have room for a front mount. I am sure you could fab up the mounts easy enough. It looks much better when they don't remove all of the bottom half though.

And they make direct bolt on adapter kits so you can fit that toyota front end on your truck

The bumper doesn't line up well with the fenders though...cut and weld time!

I own a B2000 with a bumper that took a ton of time to make work with the fender lines.

/\ Thanks , i agree! Sometimes you don't hear about them on the interwebbing-- He shows up to shows with a 5-600hp monster--

mad ra88it--how far does the bumper stick past the grille?

so nhra wants braided fuel line on non-stock fuel systems, so i tried using earl's compression fittings on the stock fuel lines to adapt them to AN style fittings---Well I wasn't happy with them, so I bought aftermarket fuel rails..

They have 10.5 cm holes and do not fit the stock injectors. Are there any solutions to make them work with stock sized injectors?? i already have a fuel cell mounted along with an aeromotive FPR---

mm? Can you explain? Which fuel rails did you buy? Doesn't make sense that your stock sized injectors wouldn't fit.

yes MM---

the ports where the upper injectors attach to the fuel rails via o ring are larger than stock---the fuel rails are driller for larger diameter injectors ---

What brand of fuel rails did you buy? Whatever they are, they're apparently not the right ones.

those bumpers don't look like they stick out any more than the stock one?

cheapy no name----guess i got what i paid for

i had a new pair sent out to me---it's a beauty

also got the FPR mounted to the firewall and some braided hose ran under the hood---fingers crossed, should have it test fired tomorrow after we check for leaks.

i think so---then again wiring is not my forte...


edit- cam/crank sensors are connected--as are everything else UNDER the hood...

as far as in the interior, what all needs to be hooked up? is there a ignition module? does the ecu have to see fuel pressure?

Huh

Well I know that in wrx ecu maps that their are variables to tweak fuel pressure. And when people runE85 they have to run higher fuel pressure to compensate for the more fuel needed. So I would think that engine wants to see where the fuel is at to prevent irregularities in a/f ratios and prevent knock.

bzzzzt wrong. fuel pressure is controlled by the fuel pressure regulator which responds to vacuum/pressure and has no electronic control.

check that the injectors are firing with a simple led & resistor on their connectors, or noid light, or oscilloscope. check fuel pressure with a gauge. also check that your fuel lines are connected properly. if you have the supply and return switched around, it won't work. check for spark as well. if you are using wrx/sti coilpacks with internal ignitors, the led trick will work for that as well. there are 3 wires, 12v, gnd, and signal from the ecu. pretty sure signal varies between 0-5 volts.

No ****. For some reason thought it was ecu controlled. So here's a question when dudes are switching to e85 yeah injectors are upgraded and fuel pump too, is it just the fuel regulator that controlls flow or does injector scaling also have a part?

Just wanna know how it works.

Anytime injectors are changed they need to be recalled. This is usually done using the learned fuel trims so its important that the maf readings are correct.
