    Generic AFPR (ebay) - thoughts?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/FUEL-...Q5fAccessories

    Aside from "what is this english i dont even", has anyone tried this generic AFPR? Seems crazy cheap for including a gauge, but it doesn't say if it's a rising rate regulator, so I'm not 100% it'd work on a TT, though it does say evo, and they use a rising rate, and ... ah, my brain.

    Has anyone successfully used one of these?

    They are crap, we just had a 3000gt in here with one and it was not happy on the dyno, he is putting the stock one back in, and the car should be a lot happier.

    They are very inconsistent which is a bad thing for boosted engines where going lean for even a second can cost you your engine. If you feel your car needs one get a real name brand regulator.

    -Ricer Evo 8: 8.75 @ 166 Best MPH of 167. Quickest 4G63 Powered Evo in The US!!!
    -Chris Cessna's Stock short block Evo 8: 9.76@150 Worlds Fastest Stock Motor Evo 8 and First Stock Block In The 9's!
    -Shawna's DD Evo 8: 9.97@143.88 Best MPH of 145 Full leather interior, A/C, navigation, stock brakes, cruisin 9's in style
    -Cory's Stock 7 bolt talon: 10.3@136 No crank walk here...
    -STM Stock turbo/motor Stealth RT: 10.95@127 Worlds Quyickest/Fastest and most powerful Stock turbo/ motor 3S
    -James STM built Pump gas Evo8 stock motor: 10.2@137 Stock long block, and only on pump gas!
    -Mike Faggiano Evo3 16g stock motor 1g 11.0@124 just a 16g knockin on 10's door.
    And the list goes on...

    Never cheap out with performance products. if it's too good to be true, it usually is.

    I use a Malpassi rising rate reg. Very VERY sturdy unit.

    jba3- I loved my single walbro, stock FPR, and 450cc injectors. with a SAFC it was perfect. and before my SAFC and 450s it was still good. never had an issue if thats your intended use. FPR arnt expensive. i have a almost complete fuel kit on the other site. Just been to lazy to get verified here.
