Default Quick question

Will the stock 97 gt fuel pump work? I was told it wont pump enough gas to the top end.

yes it is fine. You want to make sure you bump up to the 24lb/hr injectors though. The 19's will be maxxed out.

what fuel rail am I supposed to use? I'm using the 96-98 cobra intake manifold, and I just realized that it doesn't have a way of using my fuel pressure regulator from my 99 GT.

Scored this little beauty yesterday. 132k on the clock out of a running 97 Mark VIII. I ran the motor for about 10 minutes at idle, then held it at about 3k then back down to idle. The oil was crystal clear, the coolant was nice and green, no foul smells from the exhaust and no clattering sounds. It ran smooth as silk so I think I'm in there.

Now I am looking for the Cobra exhaust manifolds. I saw a set here locally on Craigslist that came off of an 03-04 Cobra for pretty cheap. Will those work?

That's what I'm using, but 1) it is a return style system, while my 99 is returnless, and 2) it has no way of reusing the fuel pressure sensor from my 99
