hmm basically i have been told that for wen i change my engine from a standard carb engine to an Injection engine ill have to replace the lines so i went to a local motor factors and asked how much they cost the guy goes they are £3 a metre is that expensive or wat,

there are 3 type's 6,8 and 10mm which one will i need, also they were made from a type of rubber i thought they were metal as ppl from migweb told me if i got em out of a GTE they would be rusty.

i assume you are sticking a fuel pump near the tank.

you will need a foot from the pump to the hard line, and a couple from the hard line to the injector rail. the return line should be ok using normal fuel pipe.

use re-inforced injector pipe (got string in it) or it will burst :eek:

get two meters to be safe

Yea i saw em, they are re-inforced with string on the inside looks like there were about 6-10 strips of string going down the pipe is that correct?

so is £3 a metre a good price then?

its only 6 quid ferrchissakes.....

i tell you what, shop around - phone every motor factror in your town, you might knock off 50p/meter. That might just cover the cost of the phone calls....
