Recommended Posts

Friend bought new anonadized blue rails for his brand new shelby. Had a vmp super charger and tune done at

Shelbyfest and needs to know if he needs new end caps and cross over lined for it and if so where to buy it. Thanks for help. He has adapter kit too.

If they're from Pro the adapter kit is all you need, it should include the cross-over line and caps if I'm not mistaken.

Yes, he will need one end cap, two AN to compression-pipe fittings, some high pressure fuel line, the fittings for the ends of the fuel line, a AN/compression adapter and the U-tube that Shelby sells (which I see it appears he has?).

 

You have to look for the parts all in pieces and make your own 'kit'. I found everything I needed at Jegs, or one of those type of on-line parts houses but I never got around to buying them, which is why my Shelby fuel rails still sit in a box on a shelf!

 

I can't remember what size the end hole/threads are on the rails but I *think* Gil Naverez told me -8 or -10. I had the parts bookmarked but I lost my bookmarks in a HD reload.

I'd have to double check but I'm pretty sure they are the Metco rails, with Shelby engraved on them. I see I have "Shelby/Metco" fuel rails in my sig so even more sure now.

 

But that kit shown looks like it has the right pieces, I'm just not sure if the thread pitch and diameter matches the Shelby/Metco rails.

These? Yeah, I don't think they are interchangeable. I'm only familiar with the Billet Pro ones. My apologies.

Yes, but those are for the 4.6L. For some strange reason, they sell the connections and cross-over hose with the 4.6L version but not the 5.4L version. And the end piece/full feed adapter is different.

Ok will pass on to todd. I probably will go with same set up. He got his fuels off ebay. Blue anodized ones for a 2013 gt 500. They look like ones off shelby site. Thanks!!!!

I was interested in buying the blue fuel rails for my 08KR, just for aesthetics. I wanted to see if anyone has installed them and had any problems installing or leaks? I knew that you needed the U tube fitting from Shelby, but didn't know about the other lines or end caps. Does anyone have pictures of this installed and how is the end product and mounting on your 5.4L?

I have gathered some of the AN fittings for my Shelby fuel rails but have not installed them yet. I am also going to install the 2013 GT500 injectors at the same time, but they still need to be purchased.

From what I have been told, the straight fittings that are shown at the rear will need to be changed to either 45 or 60 degree fittings or a combination of both.

 

The fuel inlet fitting that is sold by Shelby appears to have been built with a Fragola Performance Systems fitting.............

^^^This is how/why I got going down the Fragola fittings path instead of Russell, etc.

stangcrazy/shelbypt,

 

I installed the blue Shelby rails, and yes, they are Shelby branded Metco products. Found it a pretty straightforward process, except that I went with ss braided jacket line for crossover to address the heat issue of running the crossover at the back of the engine, close to the firewall and engine itself when you make the new set up. I got everything from Shelby except the crossover line that I got from Lethal Performance. Used some thread sealant for the fittings and all went well except for one of the AN's that I didn't initially tighten enough. Vert good looking, good quality pieces that drop ring into the OE locations without issue.

Being an analog guy trapped in this increasingly digital world, I wasn't smart enough to size a pic to fit in this post, so I added it to my sig. Sorry about the excess, but I hope the shot of them installed helps answer some of the questions that came up in this discussion.

 

All the best,

 

Quinn

Sorry for the dumb question, but is there any performance gain from doing this or is this merely for cosmetic reasons? Not arguing that these options don't look great, especially in a show piece.

 

 

Is heat from the EGR line an issue with this type of crossover?

I just finished the install and it is more like this I let enough slack so it loops over the EGR.
