Hey ppl need some help with my fuel rail, is there an aftermarket fuel rail that will fit my na intake plenum with these injectors?
Or am I better off just using the factory rail and putting a top hose on the injectors?

This is the rail I have but it doesn't suit the factory plenum also does anyone know what plenum it would suit? Cheers

I used the standard rail on mine and i have a rajab plenum, i just used a bigger hose to go over the injectors, it works fine, the rail would prob suit most aftermarket plenum id guess,

Love the colour combo on the sedan mate, the grey wheels really suit the blue !

The day I got my sedan I knew I had to have a set of charcoal ssv for it and they suit it so well.

Yeah the new daily has a stock turbo setup on it.

Not many plans for it it's already very clean has 28 spline diff, mx7 gearbox, and just a stock turbo setup.
Only things it needs are leaky water pump replaced and an after market fuel pressure regulator that's about it for now.
