    No Posts in this thread..... Hmmm OK I'll put one up Just so its not empty :thumbs:
    Installed and tested the AAM Competition 350Z Stage 1 Fuel Return Kit.
    The reason this is being installed before the engine swap is that so many parts will be changed in one go I thought, if I install, test and prove some parts working they are less likely to be an issue when the new engine goes in should any problems arise.
    It started of looking like this

    The workshop foreman immediately took up position
    [​IMG]
    Stripped the plenum etc out -
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Then out with the stock fuel rails
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Removed the injectors and got all the new bits together
    [​IMG]
    New fuel rails installed
    [​IMG]
    Installed the new fuel regulator and test gauge.

    On Sunday Buster (350-UK) popped round to play - Be warned keep clear of Bob and a pair of pliers
    I'm not sure if he was planning on lowering the car on me at this point

    Fuel pump assembly removed -
    [​IMG]
    Modified and installed - nice neat job
    [​IMG]
    New return fuel line mounted next to existing fuel feed line -
    [​IMG]
    Pressure test -
    [​IMG]
    We had 2 leaks to deal with when tested to 90psi One was a missing rubber washer the other is where the new braided fuel feed line connects to the original metal fuel line - this is due to the kit re-using the OEM connector - which I don't have - must have been removed at some point in the past. We have done a temporary fix at the moment with jubilee clips (that's when bob tried to remove my finger ) I will be replacing this with a proper aftermarket connector later.
    So the senior mechanic put her back together -
    [​IMG]
    Back to this
    [​IMG]
    The only sign we were ever here -
