    I started my conversion to an external fuel pressure regulator with a return line and thought I would share some info on fittings.

    1) The port that the in-the-tank FPR fits into is almost an exact fit for a 1/4" NPT pipe plug. It fits pretty tight, but I coated the threads with epoxy just to be sure.
    2) There is enough room for a 1/4" NPT street elbow for the fuel return, but there are reinforcement ribs on the underside of the plastic housing that must be taken into consideration. In other words, drill your pilot hole from the bottom, not the top.

    My FPR arrives tomorrow, so I have overnight to decide if I'm just going to hack into the line, like Evo did, or make a proper distribution block with the MCX add-on injectors in mind.

    Reverse shoulder replacement



    Reverse shoulder replacement is a type of shoulder replacement in which the normal ball and socket relationship of glenohumeral joint is reversed, creating a more stable joint with a fixed fulcrum. This form of shoulder replacement is utilized in situations in which conventional shoulder replacement surgery would lead to poor outcomes and high failure rates.

    I had a couple of episodes of what I think was vapor lock while climbing hard and slow up Pryor Mtn. I have a turbo kit to install next month that will probably make things worse, so I finished my fuel system mod:

    An early Miata return-style fuel pressure regulator (hidden on the back side of the fuel distribution block) is set for 42 psi. The 1000/X spec is 43. Close enough since I'll be tuning AFR once the MCX kit is installed. I'm running the FPR at a static 42, but it can be referenced to the intake manifold so it will keep fuel pressure at 42 psi over whatever the boost psi is. I like the idea of getting more fuel from the stock injectors and less via the add-on pair in the turbo intake plenum, so I will make that change later on.

    A small thing that would be lost on most people, but makes me happy is that Oetiker style clamp kits and pliers are now very affordable. I like the clean look of those clamps.

    Took an 80 mile drive today with a ~ 6,000 ft gain between starting and topped-out elevation. This was the first serious drive with the new fuel system. I reduced the vapor lock problem dramatically, but when allowed to heat-soak during a break, I did have a stumble or two in the first 5 minutes afterward. Previously, the Wildcat would vapor lock without the heat-soaking break in the action.

    I'll install heat rejecting sleeving on the hoses and heat reflecting tape on the aluminum distribution block when I do the turbo project.

    Hardest part of this job was cutting up a brand new bumper.

    Just a thought for many others and or searching for a FPR, The Yamaha APEX years... 2006-2008? 09? use a popular one, It runs a base of 45#, And hook up the vacuum line to it to pull the pressure down a bit, Then when you boost it, it adds 1# per # of boost. super popular and cheap when it comes to modding snowmobiles for turbo's and such and really anything powersports wise. The sled and or FPR was good for ~25# boost and or 360-380HP for sure on the engine, So likely more than good enough for most things people would consider going to a external FPR for.

    You would think though if your turning the key on and cycle that fuel that it shouldn't have a miss once some cooler fuel has made it through the lines. Unless the fuel in the tank as a whole is whats getting hot, I had that issue with my boosted yamaha sled, exhaust runs under the fuel tanks! in the spring when sledding on a ~60-80 degree day, If you stopped the fuel would literally boil in the tank and she would not run at all.... had to wait.

    The fuel distribution block hangs off of the trailing edge of the radiator, and with extra hose between it and the injectors in case the turbo plenum changes the routing there is probably 15" (x 2) of non-returning fuel to absorb heat. The Wildcat was fully assembled when I added the remote FPR, so I didn't have full freedom of choice as far as where to mount everything. I will shorten the fuel block to injector hoses when I install the turbo kit if at all possible.

    The Miata FPR can be plenum referenced, which I'll do when the turbo goes in. It looks identical to the Yamaha, right down to how it mounts and how much it costs.

    Today I decided it was time to install the new steering slider I got from MLS Power Sports.
    It went better than I thought it would, about an hour total. The worst part was removing my 2 inch hitch and winch mount after that it was easy.
    In two weeks I am taking it up to northern Ontario for a week of offroading. I will let everyone know how it works.
