    Those are sweet.

    Looks like this all happened about the time I split up with my ex and was off the boards for a number of years.

    What are the chances they are still available?

    And @IDIoit , what rockers are those? Very nice indeed.

    I don’t believe he’s on the forum anymore, but I’ve talked to the builder on Facebook a few times, I don’t believe he’s making them anymore unfortunately.

    I move for a ban, for bragging about something that the rest of us have no chance of obtaining ourselves. :rotflmao

    Any chance he'd sell someone (you) a copy of his CAD files and Machine code for good measure? Then they could be ordered to stock from a local machine shop with similar equipment.

    That's a great idea. I don't think Wes has enough things on his plate yet.:joker: But seriously, it's a good idea.

    anyone with a machine that can make this, would beable to program it no problem o_O

    if you want something now R&D sells fuel return rails that are pretty beachin!
    had mine on for a few years, and zero leaks.
    pain to install, but worth it

    I was thinking about this the other day, I few factors come into play with making these caps;

    which material is better for these caps Aluminum or Brass?

    what do you want more aluminum or brass?

    What is better...7.3 style caps with side barbs, or 6.9 style cap with centered barbs?

    What if the barbs were the bigger size(5/16”) on the 6.9 style cap?

    how would you want to run the lines;

    Stock configuration with a dead head cap on injector 7 like the 6.9 and 7.3T run?

    Modified configuration with no dead head? Or no line off the filter head?

    I have seen a few different ways guys like to run them on their engine. Which is the best?

    does anyone line the thin rubber with cloth braided cover hose that come with the return line kits on the market now?
