    I have flex line at the front running up to motor, one just under the passenger seat were the factory you rubber line, one coming off the hard line to the filter and then 2 more from filter to the tank.

    Now if you wanted to get a little cheaper with this, you can use EFI rated rubber line in place of the flex line for a fraction of the cost.

    I bought 25 ft of flex line and used all but may 3ft, but one thing you have to take into account is I used a Tank's Inc tank. If you are going to use the Spectra tank, I don't see maybe using 7ft of hose.

    I have a Rick's Tank that I bought from another member here.

    Just curious, why does it matter if you use a Spectra tank vs a Tank's Inc tank with respect to the amount of flex line used?

    That's easy to answer. The spectra EFI tank has metal lines that come from the pickup and run along the front edge to the passenger side like an original tank. The Tank's Inc tank is probably more like the Rick's tank.

    I like easy answers, thanks.

    I assume similar (or the same?) compression style fittings are used on the flex line?

    so while we're talking about what kind of fuel line to run, where are ya'll locating your regulator-filter? i got the corvette all in one regulator-filter. i was thinking straight above the gas tank outlet ( Tanks tank), but then i think i should wait till i get the exhaust in.

    If you go back and look at my pic you can see mine is located just forward of the sway bar link mount on the inboard side of the frame rail.
