Question engine swap, frx question

hi we are about to swap out my dusted mill for a low mile van engine. sometime ago i bought a riff raff frx but never got around to installing. well now is the perfect time for whole bunch of different things to get installed. my question is... with the frx, can i stop using the LL for #8 ?

yes you can get rid of the long lead.
if you dont have a high pressure oil crossover id look into getting that as well.
more even oil flow between the heads.
