There are a couple of different set ups. I believe I listed all of the components I used on my set up on the first build log. I went a littl fancier than most.

I wasn't aware of this at the time, but there is no filter that you need to install. It's inside the fuel pump. The only thing you really need to do is run a line directly from your fuel pump and up to the stainless line on your intake manifold. I decided to go with braided fuel line from Russell Performance. You'll need two of their -6 AN SAE Quick Disconnect fittings, two -6 AN style hose ends, and a few feet of hose. That will run you probably $100 or so.

There are other options, but it's up to you. Obviously the components will be different depending on the route you go.

I’m looking for the post. I thought I put it in our build by must not have. I’ll keep looking.

I actually used the threaded cap quick disconnect on my intake manifold fuel line, but I'm fairly certain the regular push on connector will work. I think they're the same style connector with just different ways of securing to the line so they don't pull off.

If I’m not mistaken, the fuel filter on my donor is the pressure regulator and has a return line for the excess fuel. So it is needed. Not all models will be the same.

The TC model doesnt have the inline filter. So my route goes right from the pump, straight into the engine.

Also, you might have fitment issues getting the quick connect to fit on the fuel pump. The stub that sticks out of the pump is just a hair too short and it might not allow the fitting to fully seat and lock on.

I ended up having to shave down the plastic portion on the quick disconnect fitting to make it thinner so that it would seat on the pump. Makes it harder to take off, but not too bad.

Good to be aware of, thanks.
