Ha, I'm just playin.
Did you figure out anything with your routing of fuel lines? FWIW, I actually ran two separate fuel lines to make mine work. They both come through the front firewall down by the passengers foot area, and run along the outside of the tunnel (inside the car) to under the back seat. I crossed them over the tunnel from the passenger side to the driver side under the back seat, and then drilled two holes and sent them out the back. I believe there is actually a diagram in the Bentley that describes how to do it. Anyway, after I had both of my lines ran (needed two, because when I initially got the car, the original line was already clogged beyond repair), I purchased This Tee and several male hose barbs.
The top feed comes from the fuel tank, and then one port goes to the fuel pump followed by the filter to the motor, and then obviously the return line from the motor goes to the last open port (return port).
With such high pressure running throughout the system, it seems like it may not work right, but folks have been running it like this for quite sometime, including myself. No noticeable hiccups as far as I can tell

I installed a cb tee for the tank. As for the fuel line thankful my original line is good so i only needed to run one additional line. I ran it thru the tunnel out the back towards the passenger side and out the front on the drivers side. I'll try and get some pictures tomorrow.

Actually the passenger side front has more room to install a pump and filter.
The drivers side has the Master Cylinder and reservoir in the way.

You may need to change one of the barbed fittings in the tee on the tank for better supply to the filter and pump, the better the flow, the less pump issues you will have

I am using a 1/4" to match the existing line and a 5/16" to match the new supply. The pump i got uses 5/16 connectors should i replace those for 3/8 or bigger?

I'm setting up mine currently, 5/16 supply and return hardlines and a 1/2 supply from the tee to the pump. The efi roller cell pumps don't suck very well, so the less restriction from the tank to the pump the better, by all means try the 5/16 but be ready to possibly up size for better flow

I'll look into whether my pump has issues with 5/16 or not. Thank you for bringing that to my attention :mrgreen:
