Fuel pressure regulator mounting ideas...


New Member
Hey everybody, I have a 1966 Chevelle that I'm completely redoing. It's a resto mod and factor looks aren't exactly what I'm going for. I have installed a Blueprint 632 and am working on installing the Holley Sniper EFI for fuel delivery. I am running a factory style fuel tank made for EFI and will need to run a pressure regulator with a return. My question is where can I mount my regulator for the cleanest look. I have a shaved firewall and would like to keep it as clean as I can. I currently have the inner fenders out of the car while I'm wiring and installing AC on the car. I read in one of the threads that a guy mounted his regulator in the back of the car near his fuel tank. I like the idea but have never done or heard of that being done before. Any thoughts on that? I've always mounted them in the engine compartment but have never had a car as nice as the one I have now. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Photos of my engine bay are attached.

Sorry I don’t have any advice but welcome and that’s a great looking motor. When you have time, we’d love to see more pics of the car.
Here are a few photos of my 66.

I've mounted them on the inner fender, but you'd have to work around your AC lines. I'd never mount them near the tank, you need to make it accessible. There's a couple ways to make it attractive or well thought out, the best imo, is make it look like it's supposed to be there, then make the fuel lines tidy. Nice ride.
You can get a bracket that mounts with 2 of the carb studs and holds a regulator, I have one and I’ll post a pic of it if I can find it next time I’m at my car, I mounted mine on the inner fender fairly high and above any lines, my ac lines are behind the inner fender, IMO you’d be best using the carb stud bracket Edit I didn’t use the bracket because I needed a drop base air cleaner
