yes keep the crushed FPR in there! if you really want a safe returnless fuel setup, an intank bosch w/ crushed FPR might be the most robust solution possible.

do you already have the 255 highpressure walbro?

quick couple of questions...
(i kinda plan on ordering the fullrace t3/04 kit)

will it be needed to make a return fuel system? if so how?
also for the oil feed for the turbo could i just buy a oil filter sandwich adapter n just tap into that?
n wut else is the kit missing that i will need to buy?

(i already have flashpro n i know i will need to buy injectors, fuel pump)

The Full-Race kit comes with everything but injectors, tuning and the dumptube and intake tube. All the other basic parts are there. They offer these parts as add ons to the kit. You can buy everything you would need to make the kit an entire package from them at an additional cost.

The kit comes with the manifold, FMIC and piping, wastegate, BOV and downpipe. And of course the T3/T4 57 trim turbo. You can add the extras if you want.

thanks alot for your interest -- the GT28RS will work great for auto-x and canyon runs, although its lacking a little bit of power for competitive drag racing - although high 12's on slicks is nothing to sneeze at. For that reason you may want to consider the GT3076R kit, it really fits the bill of "all around" perfectly

give Aaron a call at the shop if you have any questions - (866) FULL-RACE

I'm looking to order the kit in the near future but was wondering what flywheel you recommend using? I figure while swapping out the clutch, there wouldn't be a better time to go ahead and swap out my flywheel. Was originally going to go with the T3/T04E but am now leaning towards the GT3076R. Thanks.

Personally, I'd recommend keeping the stock clutch to keep yourself in boost longer within the powerband.
