I'm going to look into this idea some more, but I'm pretty sure I'd have to order both the hose and JIC fittings online. The main thing is I'm not sure how much hose I'm going to need yet. Guess I need to get everything mounted and take some measurements.

just suggesting mounting the pump under the hood, where its warm and salt/dirt/water free.

I like the idea, but I'm not sure that I'd have enough room for the and post pump fuel filters. I guess I could put the pre-pump filter down by the pollak valve, but the post pump filter would have to go under the hood somewhere.

mike suggested mountign the filter to the alternator or ac compressor bolts, make a bracket. i dont know how vibration would bother it, if at all, but thats a great open space and probably what i will do.
