    basically, you need a vac source and attach it to the rail after the FPR...

    no, it has nothing to do with your FPR.

    you CAN T- off of the FPR as the source for the fmu, but other than that, its unrelated. read what i said above again.

    here are basic instructions.

    #1. Remove Fuel Return line from FPR.
    #2. Attach Fuel Return line you just disconnected to the OUTLET of the FMU.
    #3. Take new section of hose, and run it from OUTLET of FPR to INLET of the FMU.
    #4. Cut FPR Vaccuum line and install a T.
    #5. Run Vaccuum line from T that you just installed to the vaccuum port on the FMU.
    #6. Mount FMU to firewall.
    #7. Check all hose clamps to make sure they are tight.
    #8. Boost.
