Nice to see some love for the 97-98 rails, since I'm planning on using them on my car
You can get adjustable regulators sans vette tax--they are the same style of Bosch regulator used in many German cars: http://www.usrallyteam.com/index.php...roducts_id=673
I don't know if that specific one fits the 97-98 rails, but I plan on testing it eventually. It looks like it should fit.

With the high pressure E85 450 - I'm thinking of raising the pressure a little bit (maybe base at 60 or 65) - in hopes of getting a little more room out of the 80# injectors.
I switched out the regular 450 and swapped in the e85 pump. I also run ID1000 injectors now. I do like those adjustable FPR's though. Id like to set my pressure right at 58psi to better correspond with what the OS expects to see.

I wish they published dimensional specs on those! I have a spare stock regulator I could measure.

My 97 was having fuel pressure after installing the 340 stealth in the stock canister.. but after cutting the bottom of the canister and have the sock hang out of the bottom. No more fuel pressure problem. I also change out to a Walbro 450 in the stock canister just with the bottom cut open.

lemme see if I can find my pump. I have a 450 in a 00 bucket - fit with a little modification.

From my research, 2x 450s will not support 1000rwhp on e85

I am going 450 intank for normal driving and a boost activated magnafuel 4303 or the new Aeromotive brushless Eliminator external.
