Alright guys, as some of you may know, the new engine is going in next week and i've got a long list of things to do.

From what i've researched, I understand that the electric fuel pump should be placed as close to the fuel tank as possible. But i'm not sure where to place the filter and fuel pressure regulator. The regulator i'm using is a Holley 12-803 (adjustable). What kind of filters do you guys recommend using?

Thanks in advance.

Erik

My preference is to place the filter between the tank and the pump and to mount the regulator as close to the carb(s) as possible.

That's the best way to do it.

Any good inline fuel filter will work. Brand and style all depends on how much you want to pay, and how much room you have.
