Default 6.7 fuel rail conversion on a 5.9

Has anyone here done this? If so I really am just wanting to know can I just do the 6.7 fuel rail, injector lines, connector tubes, and a dual fuel feed line from my cp3. I don't want to use all the 6.7 intake plenum and intake horn if I don't have to.

Why not use your current rail and have it extrude honed and use a stage 3 CP3?

The 6.7 lines, rail, and connector tubes are bigger so I figured I would have less trouble keeping the rail pressure up using those components versus modifying mine. Plus the injector lines on the 6.7 are stronger I believe.

Well, can't go wrong if it works.
