just did hutch mod, need inline fuel filter??

I was wondering since i just did the hutch mod, and removed the 2 extremely dirty fuel filters in the factory pick up, what should i do for pre fuel pump filters I dont want to get involved with a second fuel pump so I guess, I need something not too restrictive? Spin on type with a mountable base would be cool. Anyone know of anything not too expensive?
thx

Go to ITP's site and follow the installation instructions for their kit. Yours will be the same. Your fuel system is designed to suck through a prefilter. That's the one you removed from the tank. Your new prefilter will be external with a coarse rating like 20 microns. It should be a combo filter/water separator and have a drain**** too.

How was it dropping the tank?

dropping the tank was not bad. I did not have much fuel in it.

I'm currently trying to gather up the things I need to do the hutch mod and following Guzzles write up, one thing I was wondering is it necessary to use stainless steel tubing for the lines? as I'm having a hard time locating them and was wondering if brake lines would work and not have to worry about corrosion or some kind of negative effect? I was going to write too guzzle on his website but it said he was going to be gone for the next couple of days. I'm starting to wonder if it would worth it to just buy the kit and not have to worry about doing it wrong, anyone know who has the best price for this kit?
