All thats really left is to make the oil supply line, get a larger return hose and sort out the coolant lines/tank. I'm also making a bypass intake section so I can take the intercooler out so I can work on the setup.

Oh and drill the exh header for the EGT probe, it's needed but not essential.

LOL, nah, they were available at Pepboys. I'll get some stainless T-bolts when things are all together.

The UT regulator+injectors+computer should be okay.

A RRFPR would let you cheat and not use that full combination.

I am running a BEGI with adjustable onset and rate adjust. it does a decent job, but I think it will not be used with MS. If you are running a mix-n-match system, get the RRFPR that has the most adjustment possible since you'll need all the tunability you can get.

Many of the cheapie RRFPRs have inserts to set the rise rate, 6:1, 8:1, 12:1, etc. Everyone says 6:1 is the place to be, but when I ran 6:1 my AFR was about 9. Not sure where I am now with the AFR "leaned" out to 12.

Hey for chuckles can you look at the UT computer and check out the connector ? Is it a 35 pin or 25 pin ?
