Lq4 swap 88 gtu questions
« on: February 11, 2019, 11:16:28 AM »
Hey guys just a few questions, so over the past year I swapped in a 02 lq4 w/fitech standalone, t56 magnum with t2 rear diff. (Rear subframe all pbm parts complete), fuel cell, ect. Is it ok at the track to run my fuel line inside of the car? I ran it as a single line from corvette fpr so thereís no additional fittings that can potentially leak and Iíve installed shut offs on my fuel cell feed/return.. any thoughts of this. I also had to relocate battery (optima) to front of passenger seat for weight offset and simply because there wasnít anywhere to put it in engine bay lol underneath the car I have all 3in w/ pipe so itís kinda tight under the car which was kind of originally why I ran it inside the car (goes along tranny tunnel with insulated clips securing it) built the car for weekend driving, track/drift mainly and donít want any trouble from track officials. Any feedback would Be great :drive:

I'm not aware of any sanctions that are okay with you + fuel in the same compartment without protection.   It's a bad idea, regardless of rules, as well.

Formula drift doesn't allow for fuel lines in the engine compartment.

That would make an internal combustion engine problematic.  :D

That's the best idea, for sure.
