    budget? what's that? (seriously, though, i need some fuel rails)

    long story short:

    i gave myself a budget of 20k for my car this year. naturally, i suck at estimating the cost of stuff. bottom line is, my motor build is holding around 16k currently; and i haven't assembled, installed or tuned anything yet.

    have a complete fuel system to go with this build, but no rails. and i REALLY don't feel like shelling out $100 just to make the stock rails compatible with -6an lines. does anyone have a good suggestion for a set of rails that will work with my build (note that i'll probably swap up/out in a couple years).

    thx!

    Man, talk about a build. I don't really know about many brands of fuel rails but I've got oohnoo's dual feed rail kit and they are nice rails he used. If I didn't have them I would probably get the ones by Pampena.

    On a side note, what kind of engine and turbo kit you doing? I'm guessing with the bigger price tag, maybe a 3.7?
