The spirit is in need of new fuel lines front to back. They look to have been cobbled about 4 times, so I want to replace them. Wondering where I can get them, I don't have the means to bend new ones and the dealer can't get them.

I got my new lines from summit racing. It is a coil of 3/8 aluminum and if you work carefully you don't need a tube bender. then you can finish the lines with ether AN- fittings or pipe fittings! it is cheap too!!!

Are you talking about the rubber hoses or the steel lines?

Steel lines you will have to bend yourself or go to a junkyard. Rubber hoses are available at parts stores as "fuel injection hose".

The steel lines are shot. By the looks of it they've been spliced in with Fuel Inj Hose numerous times. Needless to say, I don't want to continue the hacking, so I want to just replace the works.

one thing to be wary of if you use aluminum hard-line is that aluminum and steel will corrode each other. Either get aluminum retaining clamps and ensure that the hardline isn't rubbing anywhere or go a diff. route. Rubber hose is like $5-$6 a foot though. Part of teh reason I went with stainelss steel hardline. While its a royal PITA to bend ($10 bender from Home Depot and a couple big wrenches did the trick), I doubt I'll ever have to replace the fuel lines again....ever.

Also, if your planning any upgrades, you could up the fuel feed and return sizes to accommodate your planned mods while your at it. "do it once, do it right" so they say.

I bought mine from here http://www.rightstuffdetailing.com/d...Misc-Mopar.pdf for the Daytona. From what I understand these guys will manufacture as per sample. One of the lines they sent me was incorrect, I sent them in the correct sample and they actually paid me for the sample. Might be worth giving them a call and see what they can do. I bought all my fuel and brake lines from them. Good luck.

stainless steel with -AN fittings would be the way to go as then you would be open to use better fuel filters that racers use and so on....

Looks like I can get them very cheap via summit racing so I'll go that route. What size should I run?

I wouldn't mind the capacity for extra fuel down the road so bigger then stock would be good.

I thought stock was 5/16 and 3/8?

I was thinking 3/8 and 1/2 for an upgrade. Would this cause any issues?

Stock fuel lines are 5/16" and 1/4". Most people recommend going to 3/8" and 5/16".

Classic Tube will make lines if you send them the originals. They don't list the FWD Mopars, but they do have many others.

5/16 and 3/8 it is then. I plan on running them with the an fittings and braided lines also, so I can do it once and not have to worry about it. Thanks much guys.
