Hi guys converting my elise to vhpd throttle bodies, the airbox fouls the standard fuel line from the fuel rail to the fuel filter, i can reform the line but i think it would end up to short, could you please share some photos of the routing on a standard car
thanks Dom

Hey Dom, managed to dig out this photo of the setup on mine, which I believe is OEM. This is with airbox removed (obviously), hopefully gives you an idea. :thumbup: Looks like a fairly short s-shape hardline section and then hose routed underneath where the airbox entrance/trunking sitsImage

Hi All
managed to source a new original fuel rail feed but looking at the parts list i cant see what the return line looks like, the pic above the line looks a lot longer and it sits lower compared to the elise. has anyone got pictures of it or better still a part number?
thanks Dom

Have you seen page 485 of the service manual?

there's only 286 pages in the parts list. section 42.05 shows item 5 as the return line but ive ordered it and its litterally a 90 degree elbow. im assuming there is a hardline that returns to item 3 in 44.03 but can see any mention of it. the elise parts list clearly show hard lines.

checked page 485 on the elise manual which covers it but the parts list is for a short pipe not a full length one
