You can run the fuel rail by itself, but to get its full advantage, I would also update a few other items of interest.surfcitylocal said:As Squirrel said, don't you have to change out the injectors and get fuel/air mixture controller if you use the fuel rail? Or is that just if you want to get the most out of it?

How do you loose the ability to downshift by changing out the pulley?squirrel said:I'm up in the air about the pulley. Some say you loose the ability to downshift for slowing down. But it is an easy install.
I would only do the fuel rail if you're going FI, and changing out your injectors. Sure, having better flow is advantageous, but sometimes a few other mods need to be done for it to work to its capacities. You'll also need to cut the cut near the rail for it to fit.
I don't like the design of the SRI. This is just my opinion and not based on any "expert" opinion. It sits behind the grille and suck air from the engine compartment. And even though its made of silicon hose, and some say it will never collapse, I wonder if it'll collapse on itself. Or if it does even slightly, how does that effect the turbulence and what the MAF reads?
You were wrong, wrong I tell ya'. J/K, Have fun.squirrel said:Ok, I now have in my possession the PERRIN fuel rail, pulley, hose kit, and oil catch can. I will take pics of the parts prior to installation, and will try to get pics will doing the install.
And are you all sitting down for this?
I know I have made comments in the past about my uncertainty about the oil catch can. I was wrong. Yes, I do admit when I am wrong, and I AM WRONG.
The oil catch can is very nice, and will not collapse upon itself. I made comments before about my reservations about it collapsing, and the way it is made, it should not.
PERRIN makes some very quality parts for Scions!
I'll let you know soon shortly.1LowXB said:ok so with the fuel rail aluminum flywheel cam controller and that i went from like 34 mpg to almost 27 mpg did anyone else get that from they fuel rail install?
Not yet, just getting over being sick.BoxerRebellion said:Anything to report, Squirrel?
