Fuel lab is proven dude.

You want to risk those injectors on something that may not be able to provide 50+ psi?

the boost port is a barbed conector you see on the side of the one you sent the link to...it allows the fule pressure to rise and the boost levels rise too,BUT both the fuel and boost pressure must not rise over 100 psi..meaning if you create 30psi boost then the idel static fuel psi will be set at 65psi for a total of 95 (+-5psi for crappy gadge factor)...
and that company might be aeroquipt...you get what you pay for, and on your regulator youll need one with two inputs and a single out....i did have mine set up for a "Y" from the back of the heads but i found it to not allow the heads to "flow well" when i got the regulator with the two inputs then i had said pressure at both heads and not pulsing between the both...
hope it helps

We are not talking gasers here buddy...

60psi fuel pressure is 60psi... Be it at 100* boost or 0...

That being said you do need a regulator capable of 100psi fuel pressure. You DO NOT need a boost referance thou most come with it at that level.

i plan on running 65psi with an SD pump and possibly a fass in the future. if i end up with a regulated fass then ill pull it. but at this point in time im not using a fass.

at the same time "BUDDY"

you dont need 100psi at idel thats the reason for the port..static at 65 then climbs as needed to supply demand..if one was to have 100psi total full time then it would be a short lived fuel pump......wow..member sence 2006..why dont ya shed some cash like you seem to on your knoledge and SUPPORT THE ORG allready lol

thats all..

ya that part isnt cheap..but over all i spent 434.65 building mine and No corners cut,,it is still cheaper than the 900$ some are wanting for theirs..thing about the regulator is when i milled a regulator block i kept getting fluxuations in the fuel pressure a s the engine went throught the fireing order.once i switched to a dual input it leveled out for the better...granted there is about the same mecanics as a block to the regulator but it doesnt "blend the heads together" it opens the regulator when both heads reach the desired psi
