It looks like the AEM Z6 fuel rail has been discontinued and I'm wondering if there is another clear front runner to replace it if doing a Z6 build? I see a lot of generic rails on Ebay, but not sure I want to risk my build on those. Any help would be appreciated.

Pick a oem one up at the junkyard or ebay one. Fuel rail aint gonna do much for your build but make it pretty. unless if your pushing serious power then i would understand but ebay one should work fine.

Thanks.

I talked with a tech from RC injectors today and he said that with my Walboro pump as long as Im using a 750 injector or lower I should be able to use the stock rail and regulator. He said there is some benefit to increasing the fuel pressure as it will help atomize better through the injector but then you are looking at small % gains. Stock rail and FPR it is!

Yeah, man, the Z6 I bought came with an AEM fuel rail...and it's just a decoration. I was just too lazy to throw a stock one back on.

If you need a stock fuel rail, I have a ton of them.

The generic rails from ebay are 'meh'.

I use one because I bought an AEM regulator but received the wrong flange style and it wouldn't mount to the stock rail and I didn't want to spend $100 for a 'name brand' rail.

When I got it, I found I had to chamfer the inside edge of the injector holes because they didn't do this during production. I kept cutting injector o-rings no matter how much lube I used. I used a countersink cutter very lightly in each hole in a drill press, deburred the cutting with some scotchbrite, then cleaned the living shit out of the rail for any contaminants. The included hardware for the OEM banjo line connection is decent.

These rails are actually quite beefy, they use a lot of aluminum to create them. I haven't had any further issues out of it, and it mounted up perfect.

I actually think the Z6 fuel rail is one of the best looking fuel rails out there. Just spend a bit of time with a dremel and some polishing rouge and you can make it look really nice.
