You will have to remove the upper manifold to get proper acces to the capscrews that mount it as they come up from underneath and have very little access.

Brett, How long till that adjustable fuel reg is available??

Removing the upper isnt a problem as it only takes a few mins...but as my car isn't here atm, i cant inspect mine...How do you remove the stock fuel reg and is it easy to replace with an aftermarket one?

3 allen key bolts and it is off. Swap with the new reg, and all is sweet.
Not sure when i will be selling the Kirban.
Am awaiting a shipment from Summit for my new rails.

Ah ok, so no time soon then? Have a mate who is just going through a freshening up of his AU 220, and will be in need of one very soon, so looks like we might have to get a new one mate, no dramas.

Don't need to remove the upper if you have small hands hehe.. One thing to be aware of is the allen bolts you get. From memory the stock thread is metric, and when I got a reg they were imperial thread. Or vice versa...

Correct, need to reuse the factory bolts, as the ones in the kit don't fit.

I too got a kirban, and although it was a straight swap, i didn't have small hands so it was a C*** of a job to install lol. Well i had fun and nothing was really removed, just slightly unbolted and moved out of the way. Such annoying things like the throttle body and upper intake manifold. But yeap straight swap and works a charm. Great regulator and its adjustable too!

I know that when i was running my Dry NOS System, i saw 90 odd PSI at the guage when it was activated. I have mine set for 40psi at idle with the vacuum line off.
Well just to let you know, to those interested, my Kirban is now available for sale. 100 for it including postage
Cheers
Brett
