    Just wondering if anyone experiences cabin fumes as i do my eyes are burning and my clothes reek like fuel after a run,I dunno if it goes up thru the boot or somewhere else but its pretty full on.I have 3sgte injectors and a microtech so it runs a bit richer but i cant justify the pain my eyes go thru on 20 min of driving.I might try a new boot rubber if there still possible to purchase?

    If you can smell fuel that badly, I would be worried.

    You didn't say what set up you have (external surge tank or pump?). Sounds like your fuel supply system has some issues which require attention.

    fwiw I run open quads + gze injectors & have no problems with smell.

    I just put the windows down and smoke ciggies to cover the smell.

    Yeah i have a 4agze it runs a Supra twin turbo feeding engine custom bent XR8 fule lines and a modified pick up in the tank,Swirl pot is in boot with a vl turbo pump used as a lift(In boot aswl).It runs that big 8mm red hose with the 3sgte injectors and the microtech probably a bit overkill but it never surges/Leans out ever and does not leak anywhere.When the engine was standard it was not so bad and i never had issues till i got the microtech and 3sgte injectors,Reace Can you post up a pic of your box job if possible ? Is it vented? Thanks
