Sorry Chris,..yes I have tunnel lines 2 ea,installed.I belive 1 will be blocked off due to no return line right.??


No you definitely need a return line with the EG33. It has fuel injection just like the stock 914, in fact it operates at a higher pressure (not much). Post pics of your tunnel lines in the fuel tank area and at the engine bay area (front and back). Very important that we see the gas tank end to see if they have AN fittings or not. Also need to see if they are steel or just the standard plastic.

That's good. Then you probably want do what Kent said and replace that threaded fitting on your tank with another stock one. Bruce Stone or Garold Shaffer are good sources for that. Then you can use high pressure fuel injection hoses up front to connect to the fuel lines in the tunnel (both should be 5/16 from a FLAPS). The fuel pump mounts up front under the tank too if you use the Walbro like I did. Fits well in the stock location.

Post some pics anyway just so we see what you have for tunnel lines.

Going AN has it's place, but it gets expensive very quickly. Read lots of $$$$$ to do correctly and for a street car, it is way over kill.

Tangerine racing carries the fuel strainer sock if you need it.

Good luck with the build, one other thing you might want to consider is engine seals. It is a lot easier to do these while out of the car. In a 914 it is easier than doing them in the SVX. I know this from experience (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif)

Yes the fuel screen, they get crude up, easy enough to check if you need one. All you need is hose, like Chris suggested. And a new fitting for under the tank.

BTW, the small car mount is available as just the mounts - just have to call them. It is what I used on mine. First version as a -4 style using early -4 bar. Second version went to the firewall. Like a Patric Motorsports -6 mount. It is a -6 after all. Makes it easier to get the clearance to put the EG in with out cutting the trunk. Chris did the flipped manifold on his conversion. I had room but never do anything the easy way. :headband:

Also you might want to take a die and run it down the outside of the lines. Gives the hose a little something to grab onto. They just have to be roughed up a bit. Most people don't have beading tools to make them proper. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

Yeps those ARE Tangerine Racing tunnel fuel lines. Good news there. The Walbro pump mounts up front in the stock location as I mentioned. 5/16 high pressure FI hose...get plenty so you can leave some slack if you want to pull the tank up without undoing the lines.

Got your PM, I will send some pics of my mount setup. The -6 mount setup is a great way also. Even more room.

You can also barely flare the end of the tube in lieu of a bead. Barely being the operative word here. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

I don't want to strip those threads tank or fittings..TIA FM
