Default How to remove Vortech FMU ( Another stupid question)

Alright guys, I bought the car turbo and I am completely clueless on how to take the vortech FMU out. I know how to take it off but where do the two lines go to originally? Pictures would be great if anyone can chime in.

^ yup.

All a RRFPR does is create an obstruction in the return line. Eliminate the "obstruction" and just connect the two lines together.

pull the line off the offset fitting, and connect it where the line off the center fitting goes.

Fuel lines:

1) Unhook the 2 fuel lines attached to the FMU.
2) Connect the ends together with a $1 brass connector from Home Depot.

Or

1) Unhook the 2 fuel lines attached to the FMU. You will have 2 dangling lines, 1 from the fuel rail and 1 from the hardline.
2) Remove the dangling fuel line from the hardline.
3) Connect the remaining fuel line coming from the fuel rail to the hardline.

Vacuum lines:

1) Unhook the vacuum line to the FMU. You will have a dangling vacuum line from the black T.
2) Remove the dangling vacuum line from the black T.
3) Remove the black T. You will have a dangling line to your boost gauge and a dangling line from the white T.
4) Remove the dangling line from the white T.
5) Connect the line from the boost gauge to the white T.

your fmu was installed backwards......


disconnect the line on the center fitting on the FMU, move it to where the offset fittings line attaches to the hard-line.
