Wow! For that much, I would want that in my engine compartment where it could be seen and appreciated.

It IS lifetime and cleanable though....

I am performance oriented; as long it works and does it'* job, I could care less about location.

OK, I'll bite. Other than the fact that it'* billet aluminum and cleanable for lifetime use, what'* the performance advantage?

By the time you get a setup to work in our cars it will cost you almost $150. How much performance are you going to get out of a filter? The most it will do is raise fuel pressure and how is that going to help unless your injectors are going static?

Set up? It is a direct replacement to the OEM. If you had an idea of the impurities that get in your fuel system everytime you pump gas, you would reconsider. I like the advantage that I can clean it and also drain any water from the system. Also, the filtering media is superior than the OEM/replacement fuel filters, which means, the injectors will reamain cleaner for a longer time.

All this time I have been refering to Part Number 7241; it reads as follows:

I don't see any data on it.
What is the flow rate, pressure drop, and what micron filtering?
What are the numbers for stock?
