Fuel System

ok guys... i havent talked to much about it... but the 91 3.0 is getting turboed.. im collecting parts and doing installs little by little.... but heres my deal rite now..

i have my:
fuel cell (18 gallon aluminum)
Fuell pump (holley blue pump)
fuel preasure regulator (w/gauge)
so now i need to figure out my line set up

im going steel braided with an fittings.. im just trying to figure out line size and item location... im gunna throw a filter in there too but ill pick that up when im getting lines and fittings..

im gunna be running a .57 trim t3 turbo

and upgrading the injectors to supercoupe injectors (later)

so couple questions

what size lines should i use (feed/return)?

do i need steel braided on the return?

im planning on putting the fuel cell allll the way in the back so im figuring im gunna need 15-20 feet of line each way...

any help would be greatly apreciated thanks guys!

you shouldnt need anything larger than 3/8' lines. the return line does not need to be steel braided, nor does the feed line, but its all personal preference.
