TechAFX Fuel Line

I am looking at the TechAFX hose relocation kit and have a question regarding the fuel line.

How hard is it to rotate the fuel rails 180 degrees? I haven't been able to find anything clear cut on the fuel hose installation.

Thanks in advance!

It does require that you remove the intake manifold complete. When you rotate the fuel rail the fuel pressure connection will now be on the right side against the firewall. There is a bracket that gets removed to clear the connection. It is all pretty easy. You will discard the long fuel line and install the short one. I have done many of these. I modify the evap line too. The kit comes with a long line. I have a way to make it only 12" long instead of 30+. The TechAFX website has a complete instruction kit that you can download.

Here are some pictures of mine.

I would like to hear more about this please!!! I have the Tech AFX kit, and wish I could make the evap line shorter, seem ridiculous to wrap it all the way around the back of the cylinder head and route it up under the fuel injector harness!!! Can you PM me some info on how you did this??? Thanks.

Here are some more pictures of my car. You can see how I routed the evap line. I cut the hose to length and reuse the fitting with a new clamp.

Thanks for the information!!! I will take a look at this and see what I can do. It looks like a special type of clamp...is that something that has to be bought at a dealership???

The dealership will not have these type of clamps. I get them from a hardware wholesaler. They are crimped with special pliers. You can use a regular clamp and be ok.

Just curious...Why do you have to remove the manifold? It looks like there's enough room to get the fuel rail off. Thanks

There is a bracket on the right rear of the intake manifold. One of the intake bolts go's through it. The bolts are long and it cannot be removed because it hits the sheet metal above it. So the intake must come out with the bolts and bracket still attached. After the fuel rail is rotated the bracket is no longer used. When the rail is rotated it puts the fuel pressure adapter in the rear. It will not fit with the bracket there. This is the best I can explain it. When you get in there you willl see what I trying to explain.
