    6D5BEB1C-1986-44BE-AED2-2F0C8F8A2A18.jpeg Having a slight issue getting my fitting and adapter to clear the timing cover
    Is there a way around actually cutting the cover?
    I’d rather not have to go that route
    Any help would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks!

    You will possibly get away with a forged 90 but they are more expensive then the fast flow ones. I have seen some do this and it just touches the upper cover a tad, on my aftermarket rail i had to opt for a banjo type fitting as it was longer and a forged fitting would not work well

    Interesting. I have the fuelab regulator kit, and while it's a tight fit, it clears with a few mm. Was your return line/fitting from a kit? Is the engine a 6 or 7 bolt, and what timing cover bits are being used? Bad pic for reference, if you'd like a better view I can take one.

    You can always get a low-pro 90* fitting, but it will cost a bit more than the full-flow ones.

    The 91-94 1g rail is a few mm shorter then the 2g rail. Besides the slightly shorter length, the outlet of a 1g rail will need a different adapter while the 2g is the same on both sides.Actually the 90 rail is the shortest of all but won’t work with the 91-99 TPS due to the flange angle. I run a 91-94 rail so I can run a timing cover on my 2g without the 90° rubbing.

    I had this same issue with a 2G rail. I tried a tight radius fitting, didn't work. Ended up just going with a 1G rail and there's more than enough room for the fitting now.

    I'm using a 90 degree fitting like this and it just touches the timing cover.
