For those who have installed the Corvette filter regulator setup with the Wix unit, where did you mount it? I'd like to mount it in engine compartment on the frame but I don't have an ideal location because frame is off car and everything from firewall forward is off also. I don't want to mount it and run the lines and then have to move it once frame and car are back together. I think there is more than enough room but would like to see pics in advance. Really appreciate it

Because the return line is a puny 5/16", I suppose. If you're adding boost, it probably won't be enough, anyway. I'm helping a friend with this right now- LS3 with an E-brock charger at about 10-12psi.
I believe using boost is going to require a larger than max recommended 255L pump for the Wix setup. IE if you are using a 340L pump you shouldn't use this filter regulator.

Just verified that no performance issues with mounting further away. Spoke with company that put together the fuel kit for me
