How Do I Plumb a RR with a H2E/Hypermax?

So I've been looking over my fuel system on the black truck and was wondering what is the general practice for the passenger side rear fuel fitting with a hypermax mount. Right now it has a combination of hard line to a -6 compression fitting. There is a major clearance issue with the turbo mount. Does anyone make a pushlock type fitting with a 45 degree angle and npt fitting that would go straight into the head?

Any opinions greatly valued here.

BTW the -6 fittings from DI for the fuel rail are sweet!.... I am using that to plumb to the front of the heads (after some careful bracket clearancing that is).

I forgot to mention that the hard line is probably smaller than -4 with the compressions and bends... I would like to have as much fuel possible to those rear ports.

I ended up tying my fuel line back so it was about a inch to half inch from the turbo then wrapped it in Heat shield

DI has something that uses a hard line or is a hose? David's site is down for some reason...

originally I had braided stainless but it was eating everything it touched.I used the same fitting size and put in rubber style lines.I might be able to find some pics in my webshots of the fittings.

i just didn't think i had enough room to use a npt to -6 then put a 90 on it. I will re-measure tomorrow with the stuff I took off the front back there to see what kind of room i have. A NPT fitting that immidiately went to a 90 would probably do the trick and not hit the flange for the up pipe.

Re: How Do I Plumb a RR with a H2E/Hypermax?

Just looked at my pics, no clearance issues at all. Just used the standard ITP reg return, and bolted it up.??
I looked and it has plenty of clearance on the rear, and driver side as well.
Only tight spots on mine were the gen 3 pump. I had to move the bracket for the regulator, and make a new line, different fitting for one side up front.
I'll see if I got it on my webshots.
