If you find any info, please send to me as well. I am very interested in doing the same. I heard that it will help with #8 injector knock and also give a little more power due to #8 getting the fuel it needs compared to having to scavenge off of #6. There was a kit, but I could never get any response from them.

ITP sells the Solid Tube crossover line and Stealth sells the hose. There are a couple threads going on the subject. Just do a search!

I thought those were oil crossovers (HPX)? The OP wants the fuel crossover.

Read more about the high pressure oil crossover (HPX) here.

In summary: No performance gains. No MPG gains. It may balance the engine more. May reduce engine vibration. May quiet the engine some. May make a happier engine.

There's been no consensus of whether this mod offers benefit. Some people get a benefit, some don't. Some people don't want to take the extra risk of blowing a hose, or eroding a tube.

The fuel crossover is highly recommended. So is the intank mod.

There's lots of info and opinions on the forum....do some searches, and post new questions in threads if you have more questions. Makes it easier for future members to search .

Left fuel rail cross connects to the right fuel rail. There's a T in the middle of the line that feeds back into the fuel return. There's some sort of "regulator" or "valve" in the T that limits the fuel returning to the tank.

So it does two things:
  1. Feeds the right rail from the left to prevent #8 injector starving.
  2. Removes the dead end of the fuel rail, which removes any air in the fuel rail.

I think it basically does the same thing that a regulated fuel return does, minus the regulation part. I think the regulation part is only necessary if you intend to put more fuel to the injectors. This was not important to me.
