My fuel mod :)

I got the passenger done but the the driver is trying to hide from me so when I do a coolant flush and filter kit I will get to it then.

simple.
I took the bolt(17mm) out made the holes bigger for more flow. Put it back on and for got and lost washer. Took bolt back off, went to ace got washer and put the bolt back on. All done and better than new.

When I drilled out the bolt I had to keep in mind alignment and High fuel pressure. I forget what size I drilled but its bigger. I did not drill out the anti flow back valve.








That is the hole I drilled out^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^








I used 2-stroke oil to lube the bolt and the components.^^^^^^^^^


all done!!!!!

I used brake cleaner to clean the bolt. Pipe cleaners to clean the hole. I made sure there were no burrs or any metal shavings at all.

I took a really long time cleaning and cleaning and cleaning on one simple bolt. But you have too!!! if you love your injectors, and I guess you wallet too. I even checked and cleaned vigorously the perpendicular intersecting of the fuel flow on the bolt. The flow is like a T.

NO HIJACKING

The intent to allow more fuel into the heads. The idea of drilling banjo bolts has been around on other boards for a few years now. Some feel the RR kit is the best solution using -6 up to -8 fuel lines to the heads. Another argument is to just drill out the banjo bolts on the front of the heads.

I was able to locally source banjo bolts with larger openings and no check valve. I just swapped in larger steel lines and the larger banjo bolts to the front of the heads with no real gains. Yes getting to these banjo bolts is difficult but I could do it again easily if I needed to. I don't think you will get more smoke from drilling the bolts.

There is a reality that at WOT the rear injectors are getting starved for fuel. Open up the restrictions and they get feed the fuel they need. Drill the bolts or install a RR kit, it's your choice.

If you are using a tuner or want to get to some high HP numbers upgrading the fuel system is important to maintain injector life. For a stock truck it's not worth the effort, for modded trucks it's not going to hurt to get a RR kit or go to larger banjos.
