Hahahahaha.

Those are all A/C lines. Leave them alone. And go get yourself a copy of the instructions.

Look down at the front fender on the passenger side and you will see 2 metal lines coming up and changing to rubber lines. If you follow those lines you will see they actually go to the fuel rail. These are your fuel lines. If your installing a fuel pressure regulator you will want to be working with the line that comes off the back of the fuel rail.

Not to sound rude, but if you don't know the difference between a/c and fuel lines, maybe you should have someone else do it!

Here, the yellow FUEL LINE goes from the stock FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR on the back of the fuel rail into the BEGi AFPR.
The pink line goes from the BEGi AFPR into the fuel return hardline on the fender.

that pic is a lil confusing Sam since you have the yellow line going right to the brake booster vacuum line.

You're kind of annoying for someone that wants help.
Yes the line with the plastic check valve just hangs there. No the gauge does not just sit there. No you do not connect your brake booster vacuum line to the fuel gauge. Pretty sure you install the FP gauge after the fuel rail.
All of this info is on the forum already a million times over.

WOW

too bad understanding binary doesn't pay you enough to have someone who understands cars install your kit.

WOW this is a rough forum

First off i could not find any directions on how to install the BEGI FPR any where the directions on the BEGI sight (sorry stephanie) do not show anything either. Miata is not my only car and i dont work on cars for living so excuse my noobism.

Also I do have a supercharged c5 z06 that i installed upgraded exhaust, headers, shocks, brakes all using instructions on the forums and never had a problem.

Stephanie i did call and spoke with some one else who explained the setup and i think i am good to go for now. You guys have the best tech support just not the best directions e.g to make your instrucitons noob proof dont just call something FPR put a picture of it next to its name so noob like me know what you are talking about and when showing engine bays of cars put some arrows to show what things users should be touching e.g the fuel lines point them out etc
