Tuesday Tech Question (06/11)
The Tuesday Tech Question is a fun section where prospective technical inspectors, or anyone who wants to get a better idea of how to work the NHRA Rulebooks can test their knowledge and search abilities. If you have an NHRA Rulebook, try and find the answer the the question in the book before looking down at the answer. If you don’t have a Rulebook but are an NHRA Member, you can download a pdf at nhra.com under ‘Member Benefits’.
I would like to add a fuel pressure gauge to my 2008 Chevy Aveo Super Pro car. As you can imagine, the firewall is close to the back of the small block Chevy. Is it legal to mount the newer style fuel pressure gauge isolator on the firewall?

Pressure Gauge Pete,
On page 4 of the 2013 NHRA Rulebook in the General Regulations section, 1:5 Fuel System, Location: it states “Fuel pressure gauge isolators, with steel braided line, may be mounted on firewall.”
