btw... just FYI... please tell me your using the nylon rubber FUEL lines, not just regular rubber hose for the crossover.... the fuel will eat thru the regular rubber line and cause a leak and a fire if your not careful and lucky. Itll take some time but it will eat thru it... just wanna make sure you know

another good reason to upgrade to the braided fuel lines lol

Toughest part will be figuring out all the parts/pieces you need.

Are all the parts I need in your list on bpro?

and yes I'm using the nylon/rubber ones but they don't like the pressure and heat, one did burst on the way to school so I had a buddy buy a new one and fixed it right on the lot

I will used the braided for the crossover but can I put those metal tube to threaded connectors and do a solid connection for that?

Just saw this....parts will vary depending on how you route things etc. Theres a lot of parts in that thread that you may or may not need and you might need other parts.

Sooo what did you order? I'd like to see you do a writeup for the forum on this project.
