    DIY not a mechanic looking at all the pitfalls before I begin the next project - switch from Edlebrock performer series to Holley Dual inlet 4160. Need advice on fuel lines (pump to carb) for '67 Coronet with 440, TF, stock intake manifold, aftermarket headers, Lunati cam and I recently updated to electronic ignition. Currently lines plumbed for Edelbrock performer 600 single inlet. Just for the heck of it, if I wanted a Holley 750 cfm 4160 (dual feed inlets), how much plumbing headache will I have? I don't have a Holley, yet. I'm afraid that the usual dual inlet chrome line for $20 will bump into the distributor. or coil. No return lines on this engine. If you've tried / done the conversion, looking for your advice.

    RSD-PCY05S_s.jpg Found this on Summit Racing - looks like it would solve the problem.

    You can use that one (they're real common, of course) but I can tell you on a 440 it's gonna require a little "redirecting"
    on the inlet end (sits low on a stock intake and aims at the distributor).

    If you already have an Edelbrock on it you could just get an Edelbrock 750 CFM carburetor that's what I did reducing my ProForm 850 double pumper because I got terrible gas mileage with that thing and I couldn't get a very good idle out of it either just saying

      Thank you - Looks good. I was hesitant to to pull off the 180 turn. But it looks clean. Is a braided steel line a waste of time?
