Welds look pretty good, what happened on the right side? Looks like too much filler, left side looks really nice though. Got any pics of your starts and stops? Usually where people struggle the most on.

It's hard to say whether or not it makes any difference at all but in theory feeding both rails should give me more consistent fuel flow to all the injectors.
So it goes feed from tank --> fpr --> both fuel rails?
So the return line to the fuel tank is just plugged now?

I believe the after market regulator he is using has 4 ports. In other words, it has a supply and return port going to/from the tank, and two feed ports going to each fuel rail. That allows it to feed both rails simultaneously with constant pressure, instead of going through the rails first and building pressure on the back side like stock with the 2 port FPR. Many aftermarket FPR's are set up like this to allow flexibility in the fuel feed setup.

Anyway, it would still have to have a return line. You couldn't just plug it and run our pumps on a single line setup like newer cars have. They use a variable speed pump with a controller and an internal pressure bypass. If you ran our normal type of pump without a return line they'd burn up.

I think what this guy has done is amazing, don't get me wrong.

However, I do have a friend who was like this. He modified a newer generation Firebird for years, when he was done he drove it for 2 months like a puss and sold it. I see so much of him in this thread.

Well I won't sell it. I have however considered the possibility of swapping the engine into an f-body at some point in time.

I found the perfect fiero years ago. The body was mint and the price was dirt cheap due to a blown head gasket but I passed on it so I could finish the grand am.

There is a black 94 camaro for sale locally that has me interested though...

And Fiero's are better looking?

They certainly aren't safer. I'd get the camaro over a fiero. Of course, the camaro is heavier.... I'd leave the engine in the GA myself!

See quote... there are enthusiast out there that do theses builds and get enough enjoyment out of building them that they never actually run their cars. Sad, but true... He did start the car up though, props for that.

Yeah, it's in a garage, but he's not gonna go out and drive a car like that in weather like this. I believe it's mostly done, but if he can't drive it right now, he probably isn't in a hurry to finish the last details. Also people have these things called "life" and "work" that get in the way sometimes. Give him a break guys.
