Default Braded SS Fuel Lines

since i have installed the PRJ Fuel Rails, my Stock Nylon Fuel Lines have been routed in ways that would make you cry. Not to mention when GM built my car they decided to put the engine cover in a manner that pinched the nylon lines and make a small kink in the supply line....

anyway here are the pics of how the nylon lines were routed

the return came out of the regulator and very close to the firewall

and the supply sucked even more. It actually went over the TB

so the cutting began, and since i have a ton of room in the engine bay, and the lines come up the entire way up the firewall i decided that i would cut the lines where the nylon started

so once the line is cut you can install the hard line fittings

Then measure the length you want and the routing you desire, and make your lines

as you can see i used the Annodized Blue/Red Fittings down low on the car so they would match and then the Annodized Black up at the rail so that they would also match the PRJ fittings.

I'm still running stock rails that were modified by me for the SS M90, I actually had to do the braided lines to stop a leak at the supply connector, it was a mess until that
