Default new intake questions

First want to show off my new intake from Viking Fabrications. From what Ive read on this style of intake it should work pretty well. Its different design than any other ones I have seen or used. Like to know everyone's thoughts on this type of design. But my main question ? I need to know what kind of FPR to run with this intake. I have an aftermarket fuel log that will work. Im assuming a return fuel style fpr with work. Does anybody have a part number or brand? Thanks for looking, link to pics are below.

I'd like to see a better picture of the plenum area. But it sure has a nice large throttle body.

It definitely is a more ideal manifold. Moving the the throttle body to the end on plenum will work better. How much did manifold cost?

Found more pictures.

I cant remember the exact cost but wasnt to bad or not much difference from other Kjet intakes that have been converted. The distribution should be pretty even across the cylinders. The quality of the fabrication and welding is top quality. He also built me a turbo up pipe that connects to 90 plus manifold. Ill post pics of it soon. But back to my question of fuel pressure regulator. Any body have any part numbers. I really dont want to bolt a stock fuel rail to this piece. Anyways thanks

Very cool, cant wait to see it in your ride. I like the tapered shape from the top view looks very clean.

I currently running a Klracing intake which is huge, but works great. I waited on this for long time, this guy builds them on his spare time. Curious to see and feel the difference. I think with this one Ill have alot more lowerend power.

I've seen these before and they look good as the dual plenum is supposed to work well.
I have the alternator over air con pump arrangement on that side of the engine and was worried that the inlet to the manifold would be pointing at the back of the alternator.
Let me know how it fits.

now Thats an idea. Do you know of a good app? I thought about a stop watch deal but would have human error. Nearest chassis dyno is 3 hours away and last I talked to them, I didnt feel to confident in them allowing me to make changes. But back to the intake, the dual plenum supposes work really well. I currently have an AW71 with no stall.
