i broke the feed line while trying to take the nut off (it was only a matter of time, it was pretty rusted) when i went to drop the tank.

i know it is easy to merely take the old filter and replace it with a universal one (possibly from a GM) that is of higher capacity that uses simple slip on hose ends and just use a piece of hose between the hardline and the filter.

my question is, is there any disadvantage? i will be using a higher capacity one, such as from a 300z (i think my friend with his 240 used a 300zx one that is the same style when he threw in his SR20) so i figure it shouldn't be a problem.

also, i can move it to a little more accessible place

anyone done it ? i tried searching, but found nothing.

thanks

yeah, peole do it all the time

they use -8 fuel line and aeromotive fuel filters... but you could use a GM something or nother...

just remember, you should get a high flow filter thats good for 100psi of flow... jus tto be on the safe side.

yes thankfully that pita stock filter is in the "dont need that anymore" box.
mine is setup like this:

stock hardline cut coming out of the tank and used a compression fitting. from there it runs -6 line to an afco fuel filter (mounted under driver side floor pan) then to the rail.
the filter itself is pretty decent size- 10"x2.5" and 1/2 the price of the aeromotive filter. the other good thing is to change the filter the endcap unscrews, swap in a new element and screw it back on. done.
