951 OEM Billet Alum. Fuel Rail

About 2 years ago I was trying to find an aftermarket fuel rail for my 951 that would directly replace my cracked and leaking steel stock rail. I wanted to retain my FPR, dampener and fuel lines in their original location, wanted it to look good, perform as an OEM replacement and not be too costly. My search came up with nothing and I really didn’t want to purchase a used OEM FR due to the likelihood it would eventually fail also. So what I created was a FR that directly replaces the original 951 FR and retains all its bits, looks great and won’t cost too much. In 2014 I designed and build 2 rails and associated brackets for proof of concept. I bolted one on my Porsche and ran it for a year with no reported issues and received a lot of positive feedback on how good the rail looked. In 2015 I build 12 complete kits to test the market and see if there would be any interest in the 951 arena. The rails are CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, brackets are fabricated from 5052 aluminum and all parts are anodized in Bright Dipped Clear. Each end of the rail has ¼”NPT threads to accept a fuel gauge or any other required component. Comes with all stainless steel hardware except the two SHC screws used in mounting the rail to the intake manifold. They are grade 8 M6 x20mm SHC screws and zinc plated. Kits come unassembled and I highly recommend using thread locker on all hardware and teflon tape on all NPT threads. FR kits are $345.00 + S&H Retail. Offering a special Introductory price now for $265.00 shipped within the Cont. USA. International orders are welcome also. PayPal only and please send me a personal message if interested. Best regards, David Ewell, Salt Lake City,UT

951 Fuel Rail

I Love IT! This is more than likely the nicest 951 Fuel Rail I have ever seen... even LRing would be jealous! What a great work of love... I also love the fitting behind the fuel rail's 3 bar for a psi (screw in) elec. fuel gage sender to a gage mounted in the car. What... "Genius"!
Ron... ("You sir have my vote")... "YES"
I just starting selling some 951 Parts to purchase one of these... "Works of ART"!
"Put me in Coach"... I'll be contacting you very soon for one of these WF fuel rails.

Cars an 86' 116K built/building a street/track monster. Motors out and building a 3.0l from scratch. The camber plates are from Ground Control. Thank you for the good feed back.

The rail looks nice, got mine today. A few questions-

The bolts for the fuel pressure damper are too long. The shorter ones are the right size for the long holes, they're all too long for the short holes. I'll probably have to grind them shorter. Anyone else have this issue? None that came are short enough. Also only half of the bolts came with washers.

the longer bolts for the FPR mount go to the bottom, the longer ones for the dampner go to the top.
The bolts for the arm that connect to the cam tower are a little tight(long) just keep tightening, they will snug up.
Everything else is pretty much self-explanatory.

PDX-944 The modulator and FPR don't use washer due to the fact there is little to no space for them. The M5 x 8mm long screws for the modulator go into the top two holes. Those had to be drilled shallower because of interference with the center thru hole. And yes the cam tower screws are a little tight at the bottom end just keep tightening them up.

Received mine but unfortunately the rail had decided to escape along the way. Contacted David and told him and he shipped another rail. The hardware arrived in the box that the rail escaped from. Thanks for the quick resolution to this issue.

Looks Great! Make sure you use thread locker "Blue" on all the fasteners and teflon tape on the NPT threads. I like your FRP a lot1

No first hand experience, but I do not believe so....at least not in a stock configuration anyway.
