What's the part number for the corvette FPR and what's the difference between it and the WIX model?

Where's the best (read: cheapest) place to buy a corvette FPR?

Rock auto has the Delco GF822 for 69bucks, and WIX for 33...is there anywhere better?

Are there any standard set of fittings that most buy? I saw a thread on it before but can't find it again. Somewhere had a kit of fittings for the FPR but didn't have a price on the website

Any and all help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance
Jim

I got the WIX filter on EBAY for $30 including shipping. I don't have the part number handy.

The last one I bought was a Delco, and when I took the filter out, it had the Wix logo and numbers on it... go figure...:usa:

Yup. I paid total of $36.63 with shipping.

Think I found a 5% off code which took lil change off. Every penny counts during a swap.

O'Reillys has one for $20. MicroGard - Fuel Filter Part # 33737. Don't know how good it is but if your looking for cheap. http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/detail/MGD0/33737/02515.oap?year=1999&make=Chevrolet&model=Corvette&vi=1353170&ck=Search_02515_1353170_-1&pt=02515&ppt=C0359

Good deal.

When I was looking for one I checked ebay and they were a lil more then rockauto at the time. Whenever you buy something always find a cheaper deal later. Just how it goes I guess.

So is WIX just as good as the Delco? Does it have the regulator built in, or is it just the filter?

you guys are funny.

Most have several thousand dollars in their projects and are spending tons of time to save $20 on a simple consumeable regulator.

Yeah, but that money adds up. I am saving money everywhere I can and seeing who has the best prices. Also trying to do the conversion right the first time and not have to buy parts twice. Research, research, research. Thank God for the internet.

So the corvette FPR that everyone is talking about is either WIX or Delco and is just a fuel filter? how is the PSI getting regulated going to the fuel rails?

And saving 20 bucks here are there really does add up and lets us buy stupid crap like 30 dollar emblems... no point in spending more money than you have to... otherwise, I'd just buy everything from YearOne

It is also a fuel pressure regulator. Two for one in a compact package.

If you have a NAPA store close, check with them, it's where I got mine last year, less than $30. See this thread (http://ls1tech.com/forums/conversions-hybrids/1431526-house-brand-corvette-filter-regulator.html), my post is #7 with pics of the NAPA 'Made in USA' FPR.

WIX makes very high quality filters, I would not hesitate to use WIX (hence why I bought one).
