confused on vacumm line for fuel regulator

For those with the zex kit...Do you by chance have a picture of where you connected the vacumm line from the zex box to the fuel pressure regulator. Im wondering if i just disconnect the stock vacumm line on the regulator or do i tee in?

Thanks.

Are you talking about the fuel regulator line. Maybe i didnt clarify enough.

I have the vacumm line hooked up but there is a line that runs to the fuel pressure regulator. Stock there is a red vacumm line that runs from the stock fuel pressure regulator back to the front of the engine. SO did you disconnect and then hook up the zex one or did you add in a tee.

Sort of. I found what i was looking for.

For future reference.....You run the line to the regulator and use the stock line for the intake vacumm...if that doesnt make sense then read this lol.

the zex box gets hooked in between the vacum hose going to the regulater and the regulator
no tees are needed
disconect hose from regulater ,hook that to the zex box,
take other hose from zex box and goto the regulater

I didn't realize my rudimentary point had the capability to jog right by those slow afferent neurons. There is a wealth of information on this forum. Many of the questions asked today have been answered several times over the years. Most of these questions can be avoided if someone uses the tools that this forum has made available. Allow me to slow that one down.. S E A R C H. It's not rocket science. In fact the original poster, albeit after they posted, found the information they were looking for when they searched the forum. Imagine that it does work.
