Simple question about fuel line

Do you guys think 3/8" fuel line (fuel injection hose, J309R) will be large enough as a main feed from the wvo tank. The engine is stock right now and the most I would ever do is maybe reprogram the computer and put an exhaust on it. Thanks.

What kind of return, if any are you running.....i.e deadhead (none), return to tank, or return pre pump?

Deadhead- 3/8 should be fine
Return to tank- 1/2 inch would be better
return pre pump- 3/8 will be fine.

I feed my stage 2 Casserly's with 3/8 OD aluminum HIH with the regulated return pre-pump. Even with hot tuning, I get ample fuel to the VO Fass. FWIW.

Stock injected trucks should be fine with the above recomendations.

Thanks vegginpsd, I'm going to be running a regulated return pre pump.

You will like the RR!
Shuts the injectors up nicely and gives peace of mind they are fully fueled.
