What are your symptoms? I get a pretty good surge or a stutter you might call it and was thinking I make have a cracked pickup tube.

I was thinking of getting a fuel/air seperator but would be stoked to only have to do the hutch/harpoon mod.

IT IS where the air comes from...the inlet fuel line, from tank to pump. Its a quick connect. Relieve it with 3/8 fuel line to pump, re-invent the wheel, down on the baffle system, and be done, bud.

I went with the IDP competition fuel system, it has a full Regulated Return, 5/8" draw straw, Fuelab pump and 2 filters but does nothing for air. IMHO if IDP went through that much trouble to design their own system and air was a problem they would have incorporated another filter to deal with it. They didn't, so I'm not worried about it.

air

The best bang for the buck is an in tank pusher. If you don't suck the fuel you don't suck the air.

The only way this would help is if the application had leaks on the pre-pump line.. I thought we were worried about the air already in the fuel.. Like from agitation from returning fuel, etc.
