I just routed my fuel lines to tie into the stock steel lines. I tied the fuel lines from the rear of the cylinder heads into the factory hard line in the engine valley. And the return lines from the front of the cylinder heads are routed too the fuel pressure regulator and than into the factory return hardline. Underneath the truck i plumbed the electric fuel pump between the tank selector and factory steel line. With some post filtration of course.
On the filter housing i used a bushing reducer and a pipe plug fitting too hose barb.
Hope that makes some sense too you.

I used filter housing part # FIL 4407 from napa. The inlet and outlets are 1/2 npt if i remember correctly. So you have to find a way to reduce and connect them too 3/8 fuel hose. A 1/2 npt too 1/4 npt bushing/plug worked for me. Another tip: use thread sealant tape. I tryed using the thread sealant goop and almost every fitting leaked.
