    I used 10an soft aluminum lines on my truck.. Just take care uncoiling it cause it will kink easy..It happened to me..LOL
    I downsized the line at the post filter before the EFI to a 8AN line and also use an 8AN line for the fuel return.

    It is not recommended to run a projected tip because E-85 WILL lite from a glow plug effect causing unwanted issues.

    I think maybe NGK 8 will be overkill cold on my junk motor, im glad if i can maybe make half your power :)
    but i will consider non projected tips for sure.

    I may try a near tank electric fule pump AND mechanical fuel pump before i make a new 1/2" fuel system, have old parts i could try with.
    Is it a bad idea to make fuel lines of something similar to hydraulic hose? It will be bulky i suspect, but its cheap and easy to have made because of the local logging activity and repair shops :rolleyes: and can be made to fit AN fittings.

    The e-85 will I think will eat away at the hose and put particals into your fuel plugging filters and even messing up your carb.
