    Thats what the guy before me done to my new project truck. I dont like it though! It does hold up to the pressure for the EFI but I'm thinking of rerunning new hard lines and bend them myself in the spring. Another more expensive idea is Areoquip flexable lines (thats another idea I'm thinking about, it would be MUCH easier but more expensive). good luck, Jeremiah

    Make sure you get Fuel Injection (rated ~50psi I have seen 300PSI) type line. As opposed to carb type fuel line (rated at less than 20 psi).

    I made this mistake a long time ago.... NOT FUN! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
