screwed that up. left off half my post.
now i'm rethinking installing it up by the firewall or inner fender. anyone have any issues w/ the way i was going to install it. switching to an inline filter and separate regulator gets pricey. the only other thing i can see is the vetter filter is 5 microns, where all the inline are 10 or higher. i could see where that might clog sooner. any thoughts?

i havnt seen any other male to 6AN fittings like the female Russel 644123 w/ a threaded metal retainer. can you point me to one? i know someone else said Earls makes one, but all i see is this same fitting.^^^ I suggest no! You need metal locking collar.

isn't the metal tabs inside the vette regulator-filter enough to retain it? View attachment 125395 View attachment 125396
Yeah, the male to -6 is fine, your female fitting needs the metal collar. Those plastic ones are prone to allowing the fitting to come off.
Yeah, you're fine. You'll need a release tool to get the line off to change the filter. Very common with OE stuff.
OE uses them all the time, I have never seen one fail, ever. I've seen the o-ring leak on 20+ year old car but never seen the retainer fail and allow the line to "come off"
