On this 2023 July 4th weekend, bowtie6 got treated to a new fuel pressure regulator and braided lines. The old setup consisted of a GM style non-adjustable pressure regulator and a set of E85 resistant rubber fuel lines – I wrote an article about that (click here). I was never really pleased with the rubber hoses because the braided lines are much nicer and bullet proof. So I pulled the trigger and ordered parts for the new setup.
This is what the old setup looked like:
The new regulator is a high pressure version from Aeromotive with a matching fluid filled gauge. This is the setup after the first fitment. However, with all this bling that bracket just did not look good…And this is what I mean…
The photo above, shows the whole setup.
- On the left the box with the silver lid holds the high pressure fuel pump
- The line going up from the pump goes into the regulator and from there is a return line back to the pump container and to the left the line going to the engine. That is a hard stainless line that goes under the body to the engine compartment.
- And finally the lines that feed the pump container.
