VPC and MAP ECU can support anything a T78 can throw at it.

You need at least 720cc injectors and a dual pump setup (denso or walbro).

Fuel systems go for around $1700-$2200

I am kinda in the same boat. I have a t-78 with S AFC, VPC, and Profec B. However i am on stock fuel. I am prob going to get twin pumps to keep up the pressure until i can get the injectors and rail...(have a Fuel pressure Reg already, i suggest you get one too) . I think with twin pumps I should see just under 500whp reliably.

I think that if you just add injectors you should net about 550whp, however i don't know if the upgraded injectors on the stock fuel rail will fit an upgraded one. Would someone care to give some input cause i am wondering if i sould go for injectors aswell?

They make bigger injectors to fit the stock fuel rail. I don't know how good they really work with stock lines, fuel rail, etc.

You can build a fuel system for considerably less than 1700-2200, even though that is the going price.

I can put together (IMO) the best products and a better setup than our sponsors sell for the same amount of money.

You could build a complete fuel system for apporx. 1200-1500 depending on where you purchase your parts and what products you use. This price is still using top of the line products.

Ya well......you know I live a life of controvercy :rolleyes:


Ok....here ya go................

This is an average cost items. Some can be substituted desired effect or budget.
There is still plenty of room left to play with.


Aeromotive Fuel filter 95.00
Aeromotive FPR 125.00
Injectors 4-500.00 (new or used)
Fuel rail 300.00
Fuel pump 90.00 or 50 for a moderately used pump
______________________________________________________
Major fuel components 1000-1100 assuming ALL purchased parts are NEW

I'll cover the remainer needed items below.
Obviously, If you are on a budget you need to pick up some used items that will function just fine or save a little more money. You could easily knock off approx $100-200 on your overhead by purchasing the above items used from the forums or off of ebay from racers that have changed there setup.

12ft -10 fuel line 65.00
7-8ft - 8 fuel line 40.00
Yblock 40.00
Misc Fittings 300.00
_______________________________________

Grand total = 1500'ish For TOP BRAND NAME PARTS (NEW)


Again, keep in mind there are ways to lower the cost, but I personally would not recommend it. "DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME AND DON'T HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN!"
That is my modo............

Hope this helps.

You will have multiple choices in the way you build a fuel system and the parts used.
Do you want braided stainless or do you prefer push lock design? I have used both and both work very well.
Do you want to use a particular color or is the average blue/red combo ok?

It just depends on how much do you want to spend and how well you can strike a deal.

Which reminds me..........I have a few fuel items that I may toss up for sale.

I'll check the garage and find all the extras that I have lying in boxes. Again, if you want to hit that $1200 mark you are going to need to strike some deals for SLIGHTLY used parts. In fact, if you look in the forsale section right now, there are a few walbros for sale and a reasonable price. Also, don't be afraid to seach back through the for sale section .....even months back and pm individuals that may still have items for sale that never sold.

But I'll certainly help you as much as I can.

Just for notable reasons.....The fuel kits that carry a 1700-2000 price tag usually gets you a -6 fuel line and you have to use your exitsting factory fuel line in most kits. The only way I advise is by using 1 dedicated fuel line large enough handle the job and use a y block to split the feeds to the rail. I was taught by one of the best in our community and there are reasons behind this method.

Last fuel system I built came in around 2k with nickle fittings (VERY NICE & EXPENSIVE) ..... all aeromotive, and XRP products. No cheap stuff!

Just FYI

Please explain why 2 -6an lines wont work well? Using this method...I can piece a fuel system together for ~$1K....less using pushlock fittings. This is using ALL new components...just have to know where to look and what you are looking for.

All the stuff was straight from summit.

First off, keep in mind that the 2k mark is for more than what you will purchase through JEGS, Summit or any speed shop. The individual wanted specific Black and Polished or stainless, color combinations. The Nickel fittings that were used are of the highest quality and happen to be the most expensive. Like I said before, it can be done for less money........Each individual has his or her standards.


I would like to see a detailed list of parts and prices for the above statement.

I would assume that you purchased some items used. I very well could be wrong and I will stand corrected, however 1200 with ALL NEW (Earls specifically) parts is simply not possible. In addition, Summit does not sell a rail for us, nor do they sell injector bosses.......I'll just stop there. I'm all about saving money, but never for cutting corners. With that said..............
