    I routed my fuel lines on the Ls swap and everything's good but I don't have an exhaust yet so I remember I bought a dual exhaust system a while back and I decided to install it so I started mocking it up but I noticed that the hoses are real close

    How far should the exhaust be away from efi hoses to be safe ? Should I use a shield ?
    Any suggestions ?

    Thabks
    Pics appreciated

    The farther the better, heating up the gas before it goes to the carb or injectors isn't something you want to do.

    did you follow the original path along the frame rails? I did and them came up the front subframe to the regulator and then over to the engine... It works great, no issues with heat.
