Alright so here is the dilemma I bought a used FRPP intake (starting to think it was a horrible idea) it came with some rigged up nasty looking bolts that look like it was made by welding a stud to some threads from a bolt with a head cut off and had a nut welded to the top. Does anyone know if I could get the hardware from FRPP? or maybe somewhere that would carry the ones i need and does anyone know the sizes of the bolts?

Another problem im having is that it didnt come with a fuel crossover line. (Didnt notice that till after i recieved it) Would oriellys carry a hose that would work or would i need to add clamps? I really would rather have the correct hose from FRPP but im pretty sure they cant/wont do that. One other idea was to change out my fuel rails and possibly injectors but i really dont have alot of mods just yet. So what I am asking is would adding rails and injectors be a bad decision w/o additional mods or would it be safe and beneficial to change them? I noticed on the scott drake rails they suggest the fuel line kit does anyone have this and does it work with the frpp intake since you have to route it underneath the intake instead of above?

Any help would be great. I appreciate it everyone.

Take the bolt down to your local hardware store and match it up.

Use your old fuel crossover.

It would be safe but probably not beneficial. And you would have to get retuned with an injector change.

I can't remember cutting my fuel lines off of my fuel rails. But anyways then just go get some fuel line from the autoparts store. They should sell it by the foot. And I guess you'll need a couple of clamps then too. I thought you said the FRPP manifold routes the fuel crossover underneath, I would think you would need less hose but I don't know how it is configured

As for the long bolt, you'll have to post up a pic, but I would think you could get some all thread cut to whatever length you need and then jam a couple of nuts on there.

Thats what i figured was that it work with the stock hose and im pretty sure in the american muscle post of how to install it said to cut lines and replace with the longer provided hose. I plan on picking up hose and clamps tomorrow and making a run to home depot and hope they have what i need.

Good luck at Home Depot but I think you will be better off going to a fastener shop like Fastenal or a mom and pops hardware store. I have a Ward's around the corner with a great selection of fasteners from standard to metric, various grades, button heads to flat heads.

Yea went to Home Depot and they have the worst metric bolt selection I've ever seen went to west lake and no luck and fastenal was close today but I started looking at the intake and i honestly have no clue why there are 5 in bolts so I'm going to replace them with ones I know will work
Will post pics later of one mans fine craftsman ship of making a bolt

You'll use it more than once. But for your intake manifold it is not that vital of an issue the get the bolts torqued exactly. Just get them tight without crushing the O-rings. If you're running a lot of boost I would err on the side of too tight.
Been wrenching on cars for years. Never used a torque wrench on stuff like valve covers, alternator brackets or whatever. Now head bolts, connecting rods, journal bearings and such need precise torque requirements.

^ +1 On that
When I took off my valve cover, I just made sure it was pretty snug, but not to the point where I put alot of force, Usually I just give it a little tug and its good.

i already have a half inch snap on torque wrench (ft lbs)and i have a 3/8 torque wrench but it doesn't go down to 86 in lbs. usually the snap on wont go down to what i need on ft lbs and when i convert it to in lbs the 3.8 wont go that low either
