    It's a combo FPR and gauge. I kinda want it some place I can see. I'm thinking near the fuse box but man header clearance with the fuel lines are TIGHT. How's yours run?

    I have the corvette fpr under the car in the stock e46 location and an in-line gauge right before the rail

    What do you need a gauge for? Just get the corvette fpr, put it in the stock location and call it a day. You’re not even boosted, you don’t need a gauge, just a quality pump.

    It's a combo gauge/fpr/returnless regulator/ adjustable regulator. I have it, it's $0, I just want to mount it somewhere and be done with it.

    Gauge is always good to have, especially with the hit or miss of the corvette FPRs, I've gotten 3 bad ones out of the box that were easy to see instantly due to having the gauge.

    Well that's some good news. Lines up like butter.

    Wow that shifter location is spot on perfect. Why did everyone tell me to get the f-body tail housing? Well looks like I’m in for some work right off the bat. Fml.

    I have the F body tailhousing in my car and the shifter fits perfectly through the factory hole, no trimming needed. No idea how the GTO shifter here fit so well.

    I have an MGW shifter which is offset. So it's actually sitting farther forward (I think forward) than where the shifter actually sits. The shifter bit rides up against the factory hole for the shifter.

    Well here's today's issue. I tried making heat shields but there just isn't enough space. I guess I'll header wrap both the headers and the brake lines and see how things go.

    The stuff I have used on my super tight downpipe fitups works fantastically. It's this stuff. A little pricey, but awesome. They have it in quarter inch and half inch thicknesses, and various lengths/widths.

    If you use that stuff I linked, you only get a little itchy when you install it, and then not again. All of the itchy is contained inside the dimpled aluminum outer layer.

    As long as the heat shields don’t physically touch the headers or brake lines, they’ll do their job, doesn’t matter how close they are. It’s radiant heat you’re protecting from: think stepping into the shade because the sun is beating down on you too hard.

    I couldn't fit a heat shield in between them without them touching. Otherwise I would have.
