nice. 350 is a good deal. i sold a complete single fogger with heater, purge, and gauge for 350 a few years back.
thats how i had mine setup. solenoids under the tray and nozzle in the boot. i had a plate made, to fit between the t/b and manifold. ill see how i like that setup once the new motor is built.
yea im definitely going direct port next week, i get my ax return back and im going for it, gtistile could you help bend the lines and ****? or are you back in college? if so do you come up here on weekends sometimes? let me know, i dont want to **** it up..

im down in norfolk till May brother... ive never done any hard line bending either... are you tapping into the upper or lower intake mani? there are a few guys on here that have run some pretty sick setups that might be able to help you out.
first one that comes to mind is alwaysinboost. he used to have a upper manifold direct port setup, he might be able to steer you in the right direction [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
yea i wish there was someone that was around the area that has experience with it, i mean i guess just a good mechanic might be able to help? idk, but if you think of someone that would be down to help let me know, well we should definitely tear up MIR when you get back from school. I get my liscense back the day before the track opens so i HAVE to have my **** ready. i want to school my boy with his evo that went 12.4. I think the reason evo's are even going those times is there 2 step launching that you get when you chip them. on the highway i think i would school him.
haha yea mine is march so its close enough, i got my **** yanked for my 2nd wreckless. but i will def have my **** ready by then... but def. let me know when your around, you got my username so just pm me and ill hit you with my number. anyhow i cant wait to get these parts in!!! btw anyone in this post, lets see how your setup looks too.

the first setup was owned by Jim. I doubt hes on here anymore, that goes years back.
his setup was very nice, but also simple to do. look at the lines and youll figure it out. very simple, just the bends right at the manifold make it look serious.
You know, I've seen Jim's direct port engine bay/setup picture many, many times, but I've never noticed how damn close the bends are to the rad support/cover!
I wonder if he had problems with the lines hitting the metal there! Our engines have some considerable movement when revving, etc.
I would be careful about how much room you allow around your lines. I know someone had troubles closing the hood, because he kept them too high up the runners.
I can imagine tapping the runners to receive the nozzles would be a touchy job as well! Personally I would have a machine shop tap the lines in for me to be sure it is well done. But then again I don't have an abundance of machining/tapping experience.

im unjsure as to what nozzle jim used, but the piranha nozzles are much smaller than the shark nozzles. if i go direct port, thats what i will be using. shouldnt have a clearance issue then.
im building a mk2 vr completely stock motor and management im gonna spray it wit a 100 shot and hope it stays together, im goin to use a direct port system and my car weight 1860lb with a 2.0 16v turbo so im thinking a 2000lb car in the end with a decant amount of power should go good ill post times when the project is done
