    fuel line hose

    im about to take out my fuel line (10mm copper) and replace it with something bigger, and everything is pointing me towards Aeroquip an8 (1/2' internal) but its bloody expensive for 6 mts.

    In not trying to be cheap its just the cost is so far off normal rubber fuel line. so

    does anyone have any pros n cons for going down the normal rubber hose route or should i bite the bullet and go aeroquip!

    im using push on an8 fittings not the clamp on
    one day i wil wake up and i'll be dead!

    I would have said AN-6, AN-8 is bloody massive!

    Line wise, clamp on would be better but if push on just make sure you're under the pressure rating and its all good. I'm using push on for 100psi but I'm barely running 5 right now.....and I'll only be running 37 when I go EFI so I've got no issues

    Can you not use a suitable hard line and just do each end in Aeroquip, my advice would be to speak to Guy "bigyellataxi" on here as he should be able to sort you out, these are his details:

    A1 Hydraulics
    92 Cannock Street
    Leicester
    LE4 9HR

    Give this number a ring 01162761131 and ask for Guy it is where he works

    -8 was the right choice as you have room to grow. I'm using -12!! If your running a return it has to be at minimum the same or bigger than the feed line.

    Wiring the fuel pump. If the battery is in the rear put a relay back there and use it to switch to a full 12v off the battery direct.

    thanks adam
    yeah battery is in the back, i was going to wire the pump via a relay, off the ignition supply, and i was thinking of a separate pump switch on the dash, so i can isolate the pump while ignition is on.
    i do try make like complicated lol

    You could also wire it up via the oil pressure switch so in the event of an accident/severed fuel line the pump will stop pumping fuel

    Iv got a oil pressure switch kicking about, only single connector though????
    Inertia switch...I wonder how that would work when I lift the front wheels on launch lol

    Ideally I should get someone to wire it, I'm no good with electrics!
