    I think where you have it is just fine. Run the line from the tank along the inner fender to it, and run the line to the motor along the inner fender, then firewall and into the throttle body from the back. Keep fuel lines far from that spinning stuff. Doubt you'd see any big fuel pressure drop doing it this way.

    Mount the battery in the trunk and then place the FCC where the battery goes?

    I really like the looks of that EFI unit....appears to be an all-business upgrade....almost evil looking!

    It's a nice unit for sure. Just sucks that the center is limited on where it can be.

    It's not worth moving my battery though.

    I think I will end up making room on my passenger firewall unless I figure a better way to make it work where it's at

    I would run steel fuel lines along the front of the engine crossmember and the top of the subframe to the command center.

    I would make every effort to keep the FCC on the passenger side of the car.

    If the space is needed for the FCC I would relocate the battery to the driver side.

    I would rather run a battery cable across than a fuel line.

    I've kept up with this thread and that sounds like a pretty good idea.

    I've been considering the FITech for my 79z also. It looks good, its simple, and works well from what I've read.

    I just hate the idea of mounting that FCC in the engine bay. I'm all about cleaning up the engine bay. It takes up a bunch of room and certainly stands out.

    I think I'm gonna go the fi fuel tank route and avoid that gawdy fcc when I make my move.

    I should have went with a efi tank. And agree don't want much in my Bay area.

    I will most likely put here heater core was and move a few things around or move battery to other side and put in its place
