Fuel pump regulator placement

I am installing a fuel line on a 79 camaro drag car I put an aluminum fuel line on the outside of the frame rail and brought it up to the firewall and attached to braided line where I was going to mount the regulator my question is should I mount it on the firewall or build a mount welded to the frame( it would end up being in a perpendicular line between the carb and dist but lined up with the outside of the frame rail) and bring it up about 1 foot and mount the regulator and take the line around to the front side of the carb. The car doesnt have fenderwells so that option is out. For some reason I remember something about it not passing tech if it was on the firewall.

Drag techs don't like them on the firewall because it puts them in line with the flexplate or flywheel area. Best place is somwhere forward of the carb, so that the fuel isn't fighting the g-forces from the launch after it has been regulated down. Let the g-force be with you ( boy, that's a bad pun, but I couldn't resist it).
