    Fuel Rail Covers on Camaro

    this friday i had picked up some FRCs that were for a C5. i knew they would fit with some modification. after looking at it i knew i would have to delete my air pump which is something ive been meaning to do since ive been cat-less for sometime. the passenger side went of fine with just a small notch. the driver side wont snap on quite all of the way bc the fuel lines with the green cap interfere. i was thinking of drilling a hole for the cap but did not want to do that and realize the hose was still in the way.

    what types of modification have you guys done do get those fuel lines fitting underneath the driver side for a FRC??

    Do i want to modify the cover or move the lines??

    any help will do. i did damn good on the passenger side i want more insight before i botch the driver side.

    I purchased covers from Afterthoughts for our car and ran them with the air pump for several months. No need to remove it, but you certainly can if you want to.

    Do you have the single slot covers for the later C5, or the earlier 97-98 two-slot covers?
    If you have the two-slot covers, the fuel line shouldn't be an issue.
    If you have the single slot covers, ..., , two bad, ..., you really should have the two-slot covers to make it easier.
    Not that you can't use the single slot, but you could cut a second slot, or, ..., well some people run the lines under the cover. But that really doesn't look that great, IMO.

    If you make some cuts in the rear, you can clear the AIR system.
    If you search & find the AIR removal thread, you can get away form not making any cuts in the back.

    I drill a hole for the oil dipstick. I remove one rear arch for Automatic application to clear the A4 dipstick.

    I also simply slot for the throttle bracket relief, rather than cutting the whole front corner off like some others do. That way I retain the front curve of the cover & IMO that looks much better also.

    See examples attached;
