    I never had any leak issues, my problem was that before fuel rails I did not have a Y fitting to split the fuel line and give a relatively same amount of fuel and same fuel pressure in driver side and passenger side banks.

    Because the fuel line began with cyl 7, 5, 3, 1 then 2 4 6 and 8 in serie, during accélération I had the driver side bank almost 2 to 2.5 point AFR richer than the passenger side bank, and fortunatly the passenger side bank was allways almost at target afr.

    but I did not have any problems like that with the smaller injectors and only one in tank fuel pump.

    That's why I hope the parallel fuel line setup will solve all issues. A crazy thing would be to split the fuel line in 4 before feeding the injectors then go to the FPR to be sure to have at least equal pressure on all injectors or having injectors with a build-in regulator inside their body.

    finally it seems to work, not drive yet but idle is better, throttle response is better with the 2 AFR very close to target afr, so lesson learned when you have big injectors and more than 1 fuel pump, go to a parallel fuel line setup !

    finally decided to go to a bit more horespower, I don't have a lot of things to do and not very expensive to reach 1200hp, only 4 things to change



    2 x walbro 535lph internal fuel pumps that are their biggest fuel pumps + 1 one way check valve.
    1 x new pressure plate from ACT, I did not think 1000hp was so "easy" to reach so I bought the T2S-G03 kit from ACT that is rated at 986ft.lbs but with 1200hp and probably over 1000ft.lbs ACT recommend to change the pressure plate only from their T3S-G03 kit and keep the solid street discs that will upgrade the clutch kit to be rated at 1169ft.lbs, I don't want racing discs, I've made the mistake to put racing discs with my last clutch and it was horrible on street.
    1 x 8an hose for the fuel return line
    and 1 set of NGK BKR8EIX iridium spark plugs. I have BKR6EIX for the moment and they work very well.

    the car is very clean, rust free but the guy who paint it the first time and modified the rear panel to look it like a 70-73 ( cause originaly it was a 74 type LT ) did not make a good work so I will repair all.

    Yes I can t go back now. Sometime on the roof there was 2mm of bondo only because of a small hollow, just with the heat of my heat gun I knew how to straighten the body and now the roof is perfect.
