Building a regulated return..

I've got all the hose and fittings I need to do this, and picking up the filters for a fuel bowl delete. Few questions though..

I know I'm going to use 1/8" to #6AN fitting in the heads but from there would it be a problem bumping up to 1/4"?

What would be the best size line to use? I'm running back into the stock return line for now.

Last thing, anyone know the best place to order a regulator from that's not super expensive? Same with an in-cab fuel pressure gauge? I'm doing this myself to save a bit of money but still get the benefits of the return in the long run..

Any input/advice is highly appreciated! Thanks!

No problem! I'll post pics with details, but its a fairly simple process. I always like to double and triple check before I tear into a project.

I will. I've got a week of paid vacation coming up, so I've got plenty of time to get it done..

Just gotta find a regulator!
