S-10 V8 swap Fuel pressure regulator question

I am going to use the stock tank with fuel pump on my 88 s-10

In the V8 swap manual (JTR) it mentions that I need a part from GM for the return line and that part is kind of expensive. However I was browsing around and found this...

http://www.s10v8.com/store/product_i...products_id/49

which doesn't use this special GM part...

So I am confused...

I have the regulator so I am half way there. Can I buy a hardware store 90 degree and make this work?

I have never done this swap ... but if you have a regulator ... it looks like simple plumbing to me ...

I have done a good bit of hard line plumbing in my years ... and I also recommend you installing a external fuel filter ...

Thanks 1ownerT



The stuff with the " dents " is actually Chambered exhaust pipes. Chambered exhaust systems originally came on Corvettes with side pipes and 69 Z-28's. I had previously owned Corvettes and Z-28's and like the " sound " so I used that type of system on my 32 3W coupe project. They also are round and easy to install on a 32 chassis where room is at a premium . They also are easy to mount high enough that they do not drag or be seen seen from a side view.
