its a beautiful thing.

i wish my fuel pressure gauge was on the rail...:(
You could always glue it one :lmao

If you have an aftermarket fuel rail though, there is almost always an unused bung on it for a gauge.

Just so you know, rail mounted gauges are more accurate than fuel filter mounted ones, as I assume thats where yours is. The place I found that out is in my sig.

goddamn dude, you planning on tucking the engine behind the firewall or fenders? :lmao

But seriously, nice job. Thats a neat idea, to tuck the fuel filter, and slave cylinder, if I assume right.

Does it matter? It will still look baller as fuck. Im so jealous right now, not only for such a clean tuck, but because you have the time/money to do this.

it really doesnt cost that much to do it yourself if you have the right tool. i spent 150 in fittings to do the brake like tuck maybe 50 to do the slave line tuck and 70 to tuck the fuel filter
