If you plan on driving this much distance you won't want a return type setup. Do a search on here for overheating fuel and you'll get lots of info about frustrated hotrodders with their return EFI setups...esp big horsepower builds. And this 572 motor is a massive heat pump in the engine bay of a 1st gen Camaro.
Okay spoke with Carl....Rick's Vaporworx tank ordered with a ZL1 pump. That will pay for itself being returnless now to loop the fuel rails at the back. It will clean up the engine bay even more. Thanks for the advice!

Anyone need a perfectly good DSE mini tub SS fuel tank?...lol.

They are Chassisworks headers as they are specific to their subframe. These of course are for BBC with 2" primaries. I modified the three bolt flange and had a 3.5" V-Band welded in its place. Looks like they fit '68-'72 Nova's as well when using their subframe.

I thought those were a modified set of our headers. Can't wait to see the whole thing together!

Yes, the same headers fit the 68-72 Nova when running our subframe.
