I assume you can change the fitting on your carb...

The stock 392 / 4bbl has a metal gas line -- from the carb, it makes a 180 degree turn and runs between the thermostat housing / intake / "under the carb" where it connects to the fuel filter.
Thx Robert. After checking out a couple other set ups I've noticed that all of them have a straight inlet fitting. I will most likely be going that route. The carb did come with some other fittings but I haven't checked them out yet.
