Fuel Line upgrade to AN fittings and braided lines.
Parts were all ordered from Summit Racing.
For the section between the fuel tank and stock fuel filter, I used 21.5 inches of -6 AN braided line.
1 EAR-300106 Fitting, Hose End, Straight, -6 AN, -6 AN Adapter, Aluminum, Red/Blue. This goes from the stock tank fitting to the braided line.
1 EAR-309106 Fitting, Hose End, 90 Degree, -6 AN, -6 AN Adapter, Aluminum, Red/Blue. This one connects to the other end of the braided line, and couples to the filter adapter.
1 EAR-991945 -6 AN hose end to 12 mm x 1.25 in., anodized blue. This goes into the bottom of the stock Toyota fuel filter, and connects to the 90 degree fitting.
Here’s the 90 degree fitting, and the adapter for the bottom of the fuel filter.
This is the stock -6 AN coupler from the fuel tank to the stock fuel filter. Undo this with a 17 mm wrench on the left side, and a 14mm on the right. Only turn the 14mm, and keep the 17mm steady so you don’t stress the stock hardline to the tank.
Remove these 2 12mm bolts.
Now undo the bottom fuel filter banjo bolt. 17mm wrench. Careful not to scrape your knuckles. Not pictured, I removed the bottom frame brace for more room to work (2 14mm bolts).
Fuel dripping into bucket.
Removing the stock line.
There it is, the whole point of upgrading this line is to get rid of the rubber sections.
Teflon tape on the stock fitting for a leak free seal.
Tightened up. Don’t overtighten, you can hurt the fittings and create a big leak.
The fuel filter -6 AN adapter.
In place, and added teflon tape to the bottom side.
90 degree fitting tightened up.
Added some foam pipe insulation to protect the braided line from rubbing on anything.
I bent the large fuel pipe out a 1/2 inch or so, and loosened the 10mm nut a bit as well for some more room.
When I put the stock metal heat shield back on, I bent it out of the way as well. All done with this lower section.
