    Default Fuel Pressure Regulators

    I'm thinking about changing my Fuel pressure Set up, as of right now its a Holly Blue Electric Fuel pump followed by a stock Holly Regulator right next to it.

    The thing I want to change is move the regulator up near the carbs actually right in front of them (dual Edelbrock carbs) so I can see the fuel pressure from the drivers seat. As of right now the pressure gauge is facing the left hand side on the inlet side of the carbs.

    I have seen this on many setups, did you guys fab up a bracket or do they have some made up already? Also I have heard to keep the Regulator as close to the fuel pump as possible whats the truth to that?

    Pics would help, thanks.

    BG regulator - The steelbraid fuel lines, and fittings should keep the regulator up.

    I made this out of some aluminum a while back. It mounts to the three accessory holes in the end of the cylinder head. Since making it, I've seen many designs that I like better, but this one is done, coated, and it works fine.

    Vibration is not good for your regulator. Its best to either use vibration mounts or plumb it so it can just hang there. You dont want to hard mount it like in those pics. I like the product enginering regulator but there is nothing wrong with a holley blue reg, they work great but look like ass, if its a high HP setup you could run 2 of those holley regs and be just fine and have little invested. Also you dont need to change regulators just to see your fuel pressure, you cold install a guage in the dash and watch pressure that way without having to break your neck turning around all the time. The fuel pressure shouldnt be moving around anyways, set it and forget about it.

    +1 on hard mounting the regulator. Also, ideally, the regulator(s) should be as close to the carbs as possible.

    Fleet that's exactly the look I am going for. The regulator looks like the Aeromotive one I want to go with. Any details on the bracket?


    CS, I don't want to run any mechanical lines up to the dash. The Holley Reg works fine but there is no Gauge port on it. The fuel pressure doesn't move one bit but I would like to be able to Look back and see it holding at 6, piece of mind I guess instead of wondering what its doing. Plus if the fuel pressure is dropping it means im running out6 of gas. (no Gas gauge)

    there are ways to put a visible guage inline with what youve got but if you have to have the billet anodized trick regulator knock yourself out. i would go with magnafuel or product engr. before a Barry Grant. Good luck.

    You can always use a fuel block :



    to put a gauge in, or tap a fitting and install a gauge off the fitting.
