Got the nearside exhaust wrapped this afternoon to help stop the oil lines getting too hot.




I'm wondering if I have put the fuel pump a little too close to the hat exchanger though. The bend on the  fuel hose was a little too tight too I think.



I just need to mount this monster!! I'm thinking about possibly mounting to the chassis in front of the metal mud guard, although the guard will need trimming to allow access for the 'IN' hose and the pressure sensor.

It is. I might need to speak to you regarding the need for a stone shield to protect the oil filter it's going to sit just behind the nearside rear wheel.

It's not touching but it is close. I can slacken off the bracket and turn it a bit. I think it may still require a heat shield there.
Might be able to sort with a bit of exhaust wrap.

I'll mock something up out of cardboard Dude. The last thing I want is a stone to puncture the filter! Rolling Eyes lol!
