I found an interesting part on a 93 FW. The B-body TBI cars do not have any way to check the fuel pressure without doing surgery. I found the part to overcome that issue. The 93 FW has an LO5, but it has some differences when compared to the B-body. One interesting feature is the schrader valve port on the fuel supply line. The port is in the middle of the angled section of the line. There is a different shape to the line, but it starts and ends at the same place (no S bend in the FW line). I pulled one the other day, and wish I had noticed it sooner, because I missed 2 in other 93 FWs. You can bolt it directly in the B-body. Now we will have everybody searching for the lines, I hope. It would save a lot of diagonistic time, and money spent on "replacement trouble shooting".

You said it. I want one. It was a Major PIA for me when I had to place the swivel/schrader adapter between the fuel pod and fuel line last year to diagnose my fuel delivery problem.

I put an adapter on the Starship when I swapped engines. I rebent the fuel line, and it now fits without stress on the line, and it has a permanently installed gauge under the back of the air box. The FW line would put the gauge just in front of the airbox on the driver's side.

Sounds almost like "plug and play" ?

I found another car that has a set of lines that are the same shape as the LO3/5 with a Schrader valve tap. 91-2 FW with LO3/5.
