    Default Fuel Rails- parts list and notes

    Parts list and tips for fuel rail install:

    Not intended as full tutorial although it may evolve. Will post pics when I can.


    AEI-14115 - Aeromotive Fuel Rails (1)

    AEI-15607 -Fitting, Straight, Male -8 AN to Straight Cut Male -8 AN O-Ring (4)

    AEI-15637 - Fitting, Hex Head Port Plug, -8 AN O-Ring, 1/8 in. Female NPT Port (1- if installing fuel pressure gauge)

    AEI-15618 - AN-08 ORB - Slim Line - Port Plug (1- if NOT installing fuel pressure gauge)

    Note- if you don't plan on a fuel pressure gauge now but think you might later, use fitting AEI-15637 along with a 1/8 NPT plug such as Aeroquip AER-FBM3685 . Be sure to use thread sealant on plug or on fuel gauge sending unit.

    AEI-15118 - Quick connect fitting to go from factory fuel line at firewall to AN line

    Hose ends- You'll need 3 AN -8 90 degree hose ends and 1 45 degree hose end. Use whatever brand you prefer but don't cheap out on these.

    Stainless braided hose- you'll need about 2 feet of -8 hose, get 4 feet to allow for screw-ups. Get any brand you prefer but get good stuff.

    You'll need a tool to disconnect the factory fuel line. There's lots of options, just be sure you get 3/8. I used this one: http://www.toolfetch.com/Category/Au...ols/KD3321.htm

    You'll also need to know how to make AN lines. It can be tricky but generally they go together pretty well. Here's a decent tutorial:
    http://www.project-mayhem04.com/AN%2...0How%20To.html The only thing I don't like about it is that I prefer to use thread sealant as opposed to teflon tape. Jegs has some cheap: http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS/555/28011/10002/-1 or, to make life really good, pick up a kit with hose assembly lube and sealant: http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS/555/28010/10002/-1

    I recommend sourcing the Aeromotive parts (part numbers start with AEI) through Livernois, good prices and fast shipping. You can also get all of this stuff from Summitt and/or Jegs.

    WARNING- do not substitute other brands for the Aeromotive fittings without careful research. These are special O-Ring boss connections, not pipe thread. No sealant required on these, just a drop of oil to lube the o-rings. You'll be using 3 of the AEI-15607 fittings on the rails and the other one on the AEI-15118 fuel line adapter. The fittings are a bit pricey but well worth it.

    Expect to pay a bit over $300 for this project if you do the work yourself.

    Good info. Looks like you've dimished any possibility of having your fuel system being a hindrance w/ your Procharged setup
