Yup, braided stainless stem to stern. I started out using steel, but I just couldn't get it to bend where I wanted it to go. The front wasn't a big deal. But where I have my fuel filters and and pump mounted required more than that line was willing to give. Running the braided line was a piece of cake, and didn't take long at all. A -6 line will easily make a 6" radius turn.

I considered using a mixture of braided and solid lines. But by the time I bought the extra fittings, the cost was a wash. So I made one solid run from the fuel pump to the engine bay. Same cost, less work, and less oppurtunity for failure.

If I was building a race car I'd probably do the same thing, but use a lighter line than the SS braided. And I'd probably use the push lock lines.
