are you going to use steel lines or flex lines?

Are you using the oem pick up system? or taking the fuel from the bottom of the tank?

steel lines will be cheaper but you will need a bender if you want to make all new lines. I would also get the fuel from the bottom of the tank with a little catch can.

Sump the tank, AirdogII DF165, plumb it all the way from the tank to the heads and eliminate that POS OEM filter can/FPR. It's an expensive job though. I have at least $1k in my fuel system.

I would do what PGreenSVT said. Airdog 2, fed by a sump from the tank, like Hellmans sump or the TSD unit, then just run fuel line from the pump right up to the heads, put a Y into the lines to feed each head. Then I would do a x-over line at the rear, or more ideally, a regulated return at that point. I don't have that option due to my vegistroke using the rear ports, but the airdog 2 is regulated at the pump too.
