So i'm trynna gather up all the parts needed for my TB swap, and i looked at the fuel rail that i thought had been modded to bolt on an FPR, and i did a sort of double take.

So you can see two fittings have been added at one end, and the stock fitting for the regulator at the other is still open. As far as i can tell from what i've read, you only need two of those three holes, correct?

So, my question is this: Is there an advantage to having the send line on one end and the return line on the other end of the rail, or would both lines on one end be fine?

Well i was able to answer my own question with a few trips to some garages to find some non-dickhead mechanics :D

So it turns out that, yes, there are only two required "holes" in the rail, in and out. Secondly, it does matter that they are opposite sides of the rail to prevent low pressure on the far end of the rail. Simply solution, piece of fuel line and appropriately sized bolt with a couple hose clamps, and one pipe is sealed off.
