    Hey Guys

    Looking at getting a Sard, Turbosmart 800 or Tomei Type L fuel pressure regulator for the zed.

    Plan is to have OEM rail modified with -6 fittings twin in/out setup with Jecs 750cc injectors, twin return to the fuel reg and also run a pressure gauge.

    Now can anyone please post some pics of how they have there fuel reg setup on the car - can I mount it to the OEM filter bracket/fuel hardlines? Also keeping battery in the engine bay.

    Also any feedback on the regs themselves would also be great!

    Thanks
    Matt.

    I have my sard mounted next to the battery on the firewall. Has a gauge on it.

    Ditch the hardlines and dampner.

    Pm sent.

    Hey did you do AN or barb fittings? Will also check your build thread.

    Braid and AN fittings are going to cost about $200 as much as I love braid and it's piss easy to make the lines I think I might go barb fittings which will cost about $20 + hose.

    Tomei and Sard are very similar, except I believe Tomei is hard anodised.

    I have an SX fuel reg and -6 fittings. This is the only pic I currently have.

    That is an Edelbrock inline filter on the supply line and a sender unit for a remote pressure guage mounted to the reg.
