s13 Need some advise from ls swapped owners

hey guys, im in the middle of my ls1 s13 swap, and am in need of a few questions answered.

1st. what fuel systems are you all running? stock fuel lines with a walboro 255 and a FPR? or have you converted to -6AN?

2nd dose any one have any experience bypassing the GM vats? I do not have the original key to the motor to check the resistance of the key so I have no clue what it it.....

the swap is out of a 2001 Camaro z28 with around 50,000 miles on it.

I went with the DAFT kit (which I will write a review about once everything is done..)

but any help would be greatly appreciated.
THANKS!

I am running the C5 Corvette fuel filter/regulator setup with a walbro 255 pump. Sikky and other vendor sells kits but are pricy. The filter/regulators are cheap though. I am still running the facotry fuel lines as well.

I'm assuming the stock lines and 255 is sufficient?
The vette regulator/ pump has to return right to regulate pressure right?
Also I'm running daft headers and they almost hit my fuel lines. So did you reroute your lines? Or just wrap them?

Where did you locate the filter/fpr
I seen a write up where a guy with a white Kouki cut his return line at the subframe and mounted his fpr/filter there.

And did you use the gm fuel fitting off the rail? Or go different rail??

Also I'm running daft headers and they almost hit my fuel lines. So did you reroute your lines? Or just wrap them? I just kinda put a small bends without kinking the lines, it wasnt hard. I use Sikky headers though.

Where did you locate the filter/fpr - I put it by the windshield wiper motor behind passenger side strut tower
I seen a write up where a guy with a white Kouki cut his return line at the subframe and mounted his fpr/filter there.

And did you use the gm fuel fitting off the rail? Or go different rail?? I am using the GM LS1 rail but am running an AN line off the rail
I would also get screw on style fittings for your fuel system rather than the push on style (which come with the popular kits). This creates a potential fire hazard,as the push on style have been known to pop off.

Here is the link to see what im talking about

Belive the sizes you need are 3/8 and 5/16

Check out my build thread for pictures and such
