To prove I can do more than just buy new parts...

Going POR-15 over this to hide the shame.

Did a parts run today. Got a dinky little Griffin rad tucked in there now - lots of room for fans and turdbos.

And a *****-sized fuel pressure regulator.

I've never seen a regulator like that. Why the huge head...

Mike, I've been using this FPR for years and it works great, even has boost referencing which I'll need. Does the Holley hold a reserve of fuel?

I was discussing this with my brother the other day and here are his thoughts:

I have always believed it has something to do with the spring constant, the travel required for flow by the ball, and the smaller percentage of pressure rise compared to-base pressure.

Really it is more of a fancy race car part. There is a sensitivity consideration between turbo and supercharged applications that this may fill as well. Racetronix has a perfectly suitable AFPR for $99 much like the Aeromotive unit you have or the SX unit I had on my Turbo Buick. With the Holley sale and eBay coupon this Holley unit wasn't much more.
