Got the kit installed. I also installed a racetronix fuel pump and hotwire kit. I am showing 70 psi at the rail with a rail mounted gauge. AFR seems to be fine with my aem wideband. So no issues that i can tell. I need to get a tune soon anyways.

i hope the pics help. I have yet to see pics anywhere else

Talked to you on the phone the other day, sorry we did not have a chance to catch up yesterday we are finishing "year end" backups and inventory.

The regulator kit is supposed to take the place of the T fitting below the driver seat, not the original fuel filter. That is where the original Fbody fuel line setup has the return at. The instructions should have stated that though. Did you not get one?
That is likely why you are running into higher than normal pressure. Extra flow restrictions.

the factory t is gone now, i cut the return line further back from the t fitting and used the fitting provided to fit it to the fuel filter. So the original kit is suppose to use the factory fuel filter and the c5 filter? that doesn't seem correct. By the time the fittings are attached im not sure how else the filter can be installed and not hang under the frame rail.

It sits very close but it works. Over 50 sold/installed so far.
You told me you followed all of the instructions but clearly you took your own approach. That is very likely the issue. In the instructions it says use the included brass compression fitting and quick connect tube to go in place of the factory fuel filter.
We designed this kit to go exactly in that place and use the best flowing least amount of fitting possible to keep flow restriction and transitions to a minimum.

please provide me a pic of the install then, I would like to see how this should have been installed. I am not upset. the 70 psi may be due to the fuel pump and hot wire kit and poss even the fuel filter. i have seen the C5 regulators can vary in psi. I have the return line going into the return on the fuel filter, i also have the feed going into the feed on the fuel filter and i used 2 less fittings than your kit included. i dont think the routing i used would cause any issue with flow. My car is running fine. I was just trying to provide you pics of an install so you would have some bc i have yet to see anyone with pics. Due to the length of the fittings once added to the fuel filter you cannot mount the filter horizontally, it would hit the torque arm.

i also talked over the phone with another person on this forum who did the same style of install with the kit.

We do not have any pictures yet. We have asked for them, but no one has posted or sent any in.
The 70psi is not likely due to the 340 pump or hotwire.
The instructions are clear where to mount it for a very good reason. It does not matter so much that you used fewer parts in that it is not operating as designed.

Hopefully it is just an improperly operating filter/reg assembly. A fluctuation of 12psi on the plus side is not normal. It will also change the output of the 340 pump as well by decreasing overall flow. Your injectors will "flow" more now but the fuel trims can be calibrated though.

If you use fewer parts and it works afterward aa designed then good deal!
