Get lines for a V6 regal. Or a carbureted Turbo car. All you will need to make yourself is a pump to carb line if you can't find/use either of yours. I chopped mine in half and put a regulator inline due to me needing a spacer for linkage to clear. Same with an aftermarket intake.

I don't know that anyone makes them for a carb'd V6. The website doesn't specify. I guess I'll have to call and find out.

Joe, I just installed the Classic Tube kit. As said a little tweaking, no rubber axle hose. But a good kit. As tight as the passanger side fits to the frame and front crossmember, I don’t think it should interfere with your fuel pump.

On my car, I already replaced the front brake lines on the chassis. Whatever they were, they fit pretty well. I have put pre-bent stainless lines on Dad's Galaxie and my brother's Camaro. Some tweaking seems to be normal. Something being 6"-8" wrong is unacceptable and unlike my experiences. Stainless lines are very stiff, especially when you get up to the 3/8 fuel supply line. Still, once you're done, they are done for good.

Aren't GN lines from the tank to engine bay the same as NA v6?

Ive bought kits from both companies. Had to tweak lines from both. I sent Classic a sample of a bent line that we made for the right front that gave more clearance to the right header and they made two for me for not much $$. I also bought new master to valve line from them. Inline wouldnt sell just one piece of line, only full sets. Inline also sells stuff on ebay under two different company names for a lot less than their website.

I've replaced stock gas and brake lines with stainless steel from OPGI for my '87 El Camino. The lines were pre-bent and fit was terrific with little adjustments Shipping required some broad bends and can be expensive. if you are like me...I live in Hawaii.

Up to this past June I worked for Classic Tube and while I no longer promote their business....... I can recommend if you call to place your order ask for Tim Slatterly or Cliff Schultz. Tim was a past owner of a beautiful Grand National and is meticulous about his rides. Cliff has a great knowledge of cars and is not afraid to press the engineering department about any questions or concerns that he cannot answer. Both are really great sales people.
Just my $.02

Thanks for all of the replies everyone. I replaced my fuel lines when I had the body off several years ago but they were kind of sloppy looking then and looking at them now I want to go back and make them nice and neat. I will probably wind up using AN from the pump to the carb but everything else will be hard line.

I had one previous experience with a pre bent kit that a buddy of mine bought for his Ford truck, and it fit so awful I'm not even convinced it was the right kit. I don't want to go down that road again.

I was always under the impression that they terminated in a different location because of the EFI but I'm not 100% sure. Maybe someone here can elaborate. If not I'll just call classic and ask.

I really appreciate the information. Question for you, can they get specs for lines for cars they don't list (i.e. a naturally aspirated 3.8 V6 Regal) in their catalog or website?
