In the end I opted to get some insulation wrap for the section above the exhaust. I can probably get some pics today, have you ordered your parts yet?
    Hmm lol I was sorta looking at how to get around the control arms... Yes I already ordered everything. PTFE everything.

    I will give away whatever you need. I will say that I had to butcher and bend the lines to make my 98 stuff fit from the filter to the 97 tank. So not sure they will be of much use.

    I forgot that you kept the 98 soft lines. I remember you doing the tank swap and I thought you used the 97- rubber lines from the hanger to the hard lines.

    Nope the donor car I ripped the tank from was missing the fuel hat and the lines. I made it work but it wasnt pretty. Kinda glad I took the whole thing out of the equation now to be honest lol

    he might be able to help you there but mine is not usable. I have the car at the top of my jack stands so the filter and all the hoses for it were about 5" out of my reach. I fought with them for a while but getting both hands up there to disconnect/hold/pull was just about impossible so I reached up with my large gauge wire cutters and snipped it.

    It was actually the exhaust tip the hoses would have ended up basically resting on top of so instead I went the stock rout. Here you can see the insulation(vibrant performance) as well as the brackets I used or made to do this. I wanted to be able to mount both lines with a single screw and could not do that with the brackets I found to buy. I got the rubber lined mounts at my local ace hardware but you can save a bunch if you order them online. The other mount I made by cutting some strips of scrap aluminum I had and then putting heat shrink around it and drilling a hole in it. This allowed me to put them where I wanted and again both are held with a single screw.


    I ended up doing my system backwards because I originally was only going to swap out the fuel rail/regulator but then the system I got(trickflow by aeromotive) splits the feed lines and then one goes to the back of each rail. The only problem there was that I got rid of the stock lines under the hood where it was set up to split the feed right where the stock lines merged, and there was not much space then to fit the splitter and fittings in between the rails and the fender where I made my lines feed in. So then I decided to go ahead and run new hoses all the way back and go with pump/filter outside the tank mainly because I had to drop my tank to figure out why my level sender is not working. Here is my -10 feed that goes to the splitter that then has two -08 lines.

    The hoses then go up to the fender.

    Under the hood the regulator is mounted in the small space available. The regulator is not that big but then you need a line on each side, the bottom and need access to the top to adjust it so suddenly it takes up a little more space then I thought it would.

    Started tackling the fuel lines today. Gotta say the quantum fabricated fuel pump hat is a really nice peice. I ended up going with some of the factory routing to make it around the passenger rear upper control arm.... I alo mounted both lines higher away from the exhaust. I then 90'd both lines under my subframe connectors and along the passenger frame rail. I'll get some better pics after it's finished. Now I'm stuck waiting for my intake manifold that modular head shop should have had shipped out by now. Hopefully I'll get by the end of next week.

    Got my intake pipe welded up. Fired the car up and set fuel pressure. Car is running strong.

    Also what should I set base fuel pressure at for this thing? Right now I have it at around 42lbs with the vac line off the FPR at idle.

    Alright she's finally done. Changed the blower and engine oil. Finished modifying the "S" pipe in the engine bay and made a new easily accessible power pipe I can change out quicker at the drag strip.

    Super clean setup for sure! Have you talked to your tuner about fuel pressure settings? I know some guys like to crank up the fuel pressure. I believe mine is at 42lbs with the line off so thats what the stock system like to see.

    I havnt yet. Its set at 42lbs vac line capped right now and is running pretty good on his start up tune. Its stays around 36-38lbs at idle right now. Still has around 20" of vacuum with the cams too so thats good.

    Did some last minute things to the car before it heads to the dyno ( 1 week from Friday ). First I installed a fuel pump hotwire relay kit so now I got a dedicated 10g wire powering the pump and a 10g ground going to the chassis. I also finally got around to doing a compression test on the motor, its showing between 173 & 176 across the board. I think that's right around spec of these things so it should be in good shape. Was a little worried of having some leaking valves as the heads on this car are the oldest thing on it.
