Postby mrfuzzyfelts » Thu Jan 10, 2013 2:45 pm

Just need to order the fuel lines for new car..

Was going to go 6mm but should i go 8mm?

Possible running M3 engine in the future so dont want to use 6 if there not up to the job!

I think the Standard Connections to the inj piping are 8mm Anyway. AN-6 is 8mm inside Dia.

We bought some of this for our car but reckon to be safe you need 6-7M for feed & Return lines

8mm fuel lines mate !!!!!!!!!! also put a fuel swirl pot and high pressure pump in as well, use the std in tank fuel pump as a lift pump to the swirl pot as then theres no chance of fuel starvation on corners, its better to be safe than sorry !!!!!!!
