Definitely KOOL.

Just a forewarning, the drag strips usually won't let you have your fuel pressure regulator mounted on the firewall. At least around here anyway.

thanks,,fuel pressure reg is mounted out back with the lectric fuel pump,,but it still may be a nono to ave the fuel line run upon the fire wall,,i was trying to isolate it from the heat off the headers hence the reasoning behind this setup..its jus an inline filter an a pressure gauge... thanks for the info tho,,itz a goodidea for me to check out with the local tracks,,hadn't really thought of it!! thanks again,,,,D.C.
