Default Fuel rail connector

Hi,

Just looking for some inspiration. Tried the search but doesnít seem to be working for me just now.

What did you guys do for your fuel rail connections, I was running the standard pipes from the fuel rail to the engine bay fuel filter but this hose is rather long and the metal part makes it a pain to keep tidy. So looking to see what others have done?

I mounted the fuel filter on the rear subframe like the mpi minis. You can carefully cut the crimped end on the rubber hose to remove it from the metal pipe, this leaves a nice beaded end to fit new hose with a fuel hose clip

Thanks!

I tried to upload a picture but failed, at the fuel rail side I donít have any (or a lot of ) metal pipe like I see some have on eBay. The crimp connector goes pretty much direct onto the fuel rail connector. Just want to make sure talking about the same set up.

Thank you, my car will soon be made up of your bits

Gazwad, did you run solid pipe? If so what did you use to flare?

Yes solid 8mm kunifer pipe, i used the head of a flanged bolt to put a bead on the end -put the bolt in a vice, slide the pipe over the head and use a small hammer to shape it. It's a bit fiddly but got the result
