The fuel lines come in on the passenger side on the EFI Intake. Putting this on my early car it would be more practical if I could route it to the driver side. Visually, it looks like the fuel lines could be rerouted by just changing EVERYTHING from one side to the other. Have already decided to flop the upper intake to the driver side as I saw in an article on EFI in a 68. This allows use of the original pedal and rod. Will moving the lines in this manner affect operation. Might be a pretty dumb question but am learning. This conversion is looking easier and One hold up has been fuel lines from tank forward and back. Appreciate any answers, Thanks.

I don't see how it would affect anything. As long as you have the vaccum line to the fuel pressure regulator hooked up properly, and don't pinch anything I don't see any reason why it should matter where the fuel lines attach. As for getting the upper intake to face the other direction.....that's not too big a deal either, but it would be easier to do if you got yourself an upper intake from a lincoln or crown vic 5.0 since they face that direction from the factory and I THINK they have all of the vaccum lines drilled on the opposite side of the intake so that everything still connects from the firewall....rather than having to run things in plain veiw.

Thanks. Going back to Pic and pull and they have a row of Lincoln Town cars! I'll check it out. Sad! None of those cars are wrecked, just worn out. Same as the caddy section!
