What you are doing is eliminating the branch that goes to the three-port fuel pump's "R" port. That means that the outlet of the fuel pressure regulator should go straight into the return line...

Have you actually checked the pressure, or are you just working off a "feeling"? Usually it's a good idea to check.

Check the filter to see if it is in fact clogged. Look inside the fuel tank...

Note that you will either have to modify the rear wall of the engine bay to fit the CIS parts, or you will have to re-locate some of those parts. IIRC, it's the airbox that is in the way. I believe...

Do they make the driver's side one yet? There isn't as much demand for that as for the passenger's side, for obvious reasons. Definitely check with them first!

AFAIK, the only difference is the spline count.

Note that the stock torsion bars on the 914 are thinner than those on any 911, so the spring rate will be lower. The difference is less than 1mm,...

There should be no hoses directly from the manifold to the air cleaner. If there are any, they are a big vacuum leak. There would always be some component in the way, either the decel valve or the...

A good machinist can fix it for you. Take the tank to them and explain. I think there is a copper coating inside the tank, which may be important for them to know.
