sooo, I looked at it and I do not use fuel regulator ( Jim did msd 3 port) I bought one but sold it since the guy who flashed my ECM told me you  don't need it .I think he said 3.8 has one build in ? I could be wrong about it ,but yes I do not have one. also I do not use this
EGR,Vat,auto transmission,gas tank,2nd fan,speed eliminator,rpm increased,and 2nd 02 off and EVAP. car is chipped and small pulley on S/C

I'm using the MSD 2225 mounted vertically next to the gas tank with no problems so far.  I believe this is similar to what Jim Dinner did without any issues.  By the way, I have a replica frame.

Yusha it does not drips all the time . I guess I'll have to change the fuel line for mm size instead of standard one day.

In my NAERC Chaise its mounted horizontal right next to the firewall in the engine bay close to the chaise floor.
The fuel cell is on the passenger side. I will see if I can get some pic.
For all those out there with the NAERC Chassis... Would be good if you can comment what is the best way for the fuel pump to be mounted and would would be a good inline performance fuel pump to replace the regular NAERC provided fuel pump (Have a 3800SC series 2 engine but thinking about swamping it out with an LSx engine in the near future)...

I have a tube chassis and external fuel pump, when the car sit for month or two and then when started  fuel pump is  pissing a bit at the hose , kind pita get under and keep tight the clamp . now my pump is vertical mounted by the fuel tank,. should it be mounted horizontal or make no difference.
