We designed this bracket to attach to the wiper cowl of the DSM engine bay and hang the fuel filter vertically below the cowl. This bracket is powdercoated black and includes all necessary stainless fasteners for installation. We recommend installing Rivnuts on the wiper cowl to attach this bracket, and that would require you to purchase the tool to install Rivnuts ($15-80 on Amazon). With this bracket, we will include the Rivnuts and screws, as well as stainless self-tapping screws for those who don’t want to use Rivnuts.
This bracket is designed to work with the larger Fuelab filters that run the larger 5″ element. We offer the bracket and hardware by itself, or we can sell it with the Fuelab filter (black color only).
FITMENT NOTES: We designed these to sit as close to the firewall as possible to leave at much clearance as possible around the filter. Model 1 has the least protrusion but it does crowd the OE clutch slave cylinder hardline a bit. For optimal fitment, we recommend replacing that line with a stainless braided replacement or slightly bending the OE line out of the way. You can run model 2 in the center of the bay but it will stick out ~1/2″ more into the engine bay than the Model 1 bracket. Model 1 does not fit on the passenger side.
Fits ANY 1990-94 Eclipse/Talon/Laser.
Filter Element recommendations: 6-10 micron for gasoline, 40-100 micron for E85 and other alcohols.
