Regulated return or crossover.....

At what point should either of these be installed.......one or the other or both? I have no flippin' idea bout some of this stuff. I am working on gettin' a couple files for my SCT from Matt if I can get a hold of him other than email. waiting for a call back today hopefully.

Are they completely necessary?


The reg. returns are big money. why so much?

if you did them both, do them at the same time.. The crossover alone is worth it, and probably the hardest to get to to change. But even then its fairly easy.

The regulator itself is over 200 bucks, then you start including lines etc. Also the hard lines are as easy and cheap to build. I looked into design new ones and me and another member couldnt find a place to save our life that would do it, when we did it cost like 150 bucks just to do 2. If your not doing anything heavy such as injectors etc a crossover line is all you really need just to open the back of the heads.

Perfect. a quick accurate answer. What do I need to do the crossover and I think I saw where someone said its a PITA to get to where they go.

Stage I Fuel Line upgrade with a Crossover with Fixed Orifice with return line costing roughly $650 would in essence get a little more fuel flow, more even flow, and a return of unused fuel back to the tank.

At least that is my understanding of researching these 2 mods primarily with the information from TrusPerfor.

Would this be a significant enough of an improvement to the fuel system to easily support 150cc injectors?

They are a little difficult to get to, but it can be done in a driveway in about a day. We did mine in about a day. Stage 1 upgrade and the crossover line. Well made kit.

That the one i got. Trusted Performance Stage 1 w/crossover line!

650 is for a complete regulated return kit including new front lines, new rear lines hard lines at that. Along with everything else. But if your gonna run stock injectors maybe even 155 a crossover should be enough. 155 are only 20cc more then stock injectors.
