Anybody Got A Aem Fuel Rail

I just put on my AEM FUEL RAIL with B&M FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR with a CHM FUEL GUAGE, I have the fuel pressure set at 38 psi (too high or too low). what my question is that.....has anybody felt a horsepower difference or a quicker throttle response or what? my friend came by and he hit the throttle and he felt a quicker response.......and i said that i cant tell a difference so i drove it and i felt more hp and quicker response

IS IT ME OR IS THIS THE SHIT

Why would this increase anything? Fuel is not the bottle neck in an all-motor setup, it's the incoming charge of air....how about you all focus your attention on that before wasting money on AEM fuel rails, etc which are not cheap. I'd take some of that money and buy a book on engine dynamics, seriously...I'm not being a d**k, I'm being straight up...you will learn where to put your money and focus your attention on. If you view my message and just being a$$hole-ish your ignorant of the truth.

ok one...u 2 are smokin something, 2 just bc u r getting a new fuel rail doesn't mean u r doing it just for HP. i got a new fuel rail and pressure regulator and new whole fuel system. it worth the money....helps not just for daily driving but for shows and just to damn well look good. it is like why the hell would anyone get a body kit? or get new tail lights or carbon fiber hood or a dress up kit..."dude they don't increase hp....save the money for a turbo" lmao. to each his own. but i would say as the rules of science apply.....if u replace anything i mean anything in the engine, on a old ass car, it is gonna be better. as long as it is installed correctly and the time is taken to do it right. so i say go ahead and do whatever u want. if u want to get a fuel rail first go for it. it will be the basis for a nos set up later on, if u wann alook at it that way. so without being a complete asshole, i have said my thing. i hope everyone keeps to his owns plans on building his car. do not let anyone influence u on doing something u really do not want to do. whew hope this sheds some light on the subject

all show, no go sucks ballz IMO...but if the show scene is your gravy...whateva do it up....but I figured this person posting on AEM fuel rail in the "all-motor" forum and asking about power is well "asking about power gains" ...I'm just being real....

You tell em Cisco...


BTW The stock fuel rail has been proven to provide more than enough flow to handle 275-300+ hp...

You're more likely to have a need to replace injectors long before having to even think about upgrading the fuel rail...



for aesthetic questions in the all motor forum...

READ the thread title, hes not asking for your opinion on whether or not he should have gottten a fuel rail. i dont see why people have to flame for no reason, he was asking a simple question, not a paragraph long response to why he shouldnt have gotten a fuel rail . The fuel rail will help a little bit with engine performance, but in the long run, i doubt you'll see a lot of HP from it. And as said before people mostly use it for looks and show.

lol ok well as i said b4 think of i this way....a almost 15 year old fuel rail...HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM...i wonder how crappy the inside is...take your stock one off and take a look at it..it is amazing how dirty it can get. well anyway, even if u r for more HP and just having youre car run better...a NEW fuel rail is a good investment. if will run more EFFICIENTLY, and will handle for HP and more abbuse. Even if u r not going to add NOS or a turbo it is still a good thing to replace. if anyone has taking a physics class or even has the slightest knowledge about cars, they would know a new fuel rail is better no matter what. ok so maybe 1hp more but it gonna run more efficient and get better gas mileage. o and BTW it is not expensive at all...maybe 100-150. and that is the more expensive side. ebay...probably 75. well off to working on my car again.

Time for Jay's Spend 'n Save theory of car part purchase.

Spend $3.49 on a can of carb cleaner.
Save the money on a new fuel rail.
Spend the same amount of time on removal/installation.
Save the rest for something worthwhile, like a new fuel filter.
Spend the extra on strippers.

listen i just wanted to get peoples opinion on this. seeing that many people on this site dont have this part anyway. and yes my motor is all motor just to let you know. and to my understand that it did make power and good throttle response.

And what motor do you have

Bumping an old thread to say I installed an AEM rail and regulator today and notice a difference with the pressure set 38psi @ idle.

Around 3000 I feel a little pickup, and my tires break when I step on it from a dead stop.

Definetely 5 hp or more...

Unless my engine was starved before.

is all I have to say. Just that. Nothing else, I will not flame you on this one. I just believe that there are better things you can do with your money. BTW, that combo is close to 300. So yes 300 bucks for a butt dynoed 5hp? When you dyno it I bet you get maybe a smoother curve max gain of 3hp and that will occur at the low rpm. I am sure you lost something in around 5k.
