    Switching to a return fuel system on my 2007. My question is do I remove the factory fuel lines or cap and leave them alone? Also for the 2007 - 2009 crowd that have switched, where have you installed your regulator?

    I took my lines out and ran the new lines along the same route so I could use the bolt holes to anchor the new lines.

    There's no reason you can't use the factory lines if you choose to go that route.

    I did the same. Regulator mounted to the driver’s side strut tower, but I believe there’s something in the way on a 07-09.

    I removed my factory lines and there is stuff in the way next to the master cylinder so I had to fab up a mounting plate and bolted it the the strut tower. 7929db3daea15409beb01fa369b5a4e0.jpg

    Guy's, thanks for the info and pictures. On the 07 - 09 there's a lot of A/C lines in the left rear corner. Also, I put a line-lock solenoid on the strut tower that takes up real estate. My lines are pre-cut so I guess I'll have to mock it up and see where they go. IMG_0680.JPG IMG_0682.JPG

    If you have the division x fuel system the regulator will be placed in that terribly tight spot on the trust tower right in front of the master cylinder. I remember having to make it fit by unbolting the ac components and remounting them in a way that made a bit more room for the regulator and lines. It is an awful spot for it but the lines were pre made so it went where they designed it to go

    Looks like you have a nice space just outside of the line loc location.
    I removed the stock lines and ran the new ones similarly down the driver side.
    Fuel filter similar location to factory, but mine is a '14, so yours may very.
    Good luck.

    Yes, I have the Division X return system. Do you have any pictures of the regulator installation?
