    The FCC is the fuel command center and there is only one. I mounted it on the driver side radiator support area (middle picture).

    That is the problem I have. I have to route the hose from the stock fuel pump that usually goes to the carburetor and route that directly to the fuel command center.

    I agree about if a accident and routing either if those 2 ways

    You're pretty much limited to lower core support, unless you remount the FCC back around the air box area.

    I would love to put it one the passenger firewall but have no room there. I may have to MAKE it work unfortunately

    How does it mount? Could you swap locations with your radiator overflow jug?

    It has been mounted in a upright position. So would be tough to get where overflow is,

    Is here any reason why you can't mount the command center under the car near the fuel tank? Run the fuel line pretty much stock but I'd come across the top of the transmission and up the back of the intake to the throttle body. The wiring from the command center can route along the frame in a nice HD split loom.

    Ut kind of limits what you can do because you have to be 5 feet from the efi unit with theach command center. And the fuel command center runs off of the stock fuel pump

    Could you mount it on the back side of the passenger side inner fender well in between the well and firewall? That would be ideal.

    That may work. I may end up re routing a few things I have on my passenger firewall. It's a tricky one haha

    Oh....that sucks-is it super sensitive to fuel pressure changes then?
