    Default C20LET fuel pipes/hoses

    My fuel pipes are 10 plus years old and I want to replace them. The current ones are a bit of a bodge, original ones from a vectra I think joined at the bulkhead to hoses running to the original petrol tank with submerged pump.

    Can anyone recommend a better set up, ideally I would like no joins for supply and return to reduce chances of a leak. Noticed some braided ones on eBay from abroad but again these are only 1m long.

    Go to your local hose place mate to do the job properly id advise getting teflon and fitings after your pump and just get good quality from the tank to the pump as alot of super unleaded fuels contain methanol . I had my full set of hoses made custom to my car all in 13mm internal teflon braided (huge) and an10 fittings aswell as elbows n what have you for the pump . Cost around 140 but will never need doing again. Probs he half the price in 8mm or what ever the standard size is.

    Someone mentioned to me that corsa b plastic lines are a good fit. I have an spi tank like yourself and will be changing them for corsa ones soon

    Yes Corsa C lines I've used on my c20let - easy to work with and modify and are plenty beefy enough.

    Corsa B (later models) will be the same too
    e92 M3 Competition, a new let engine and a bare shell and a TB'd Nova Track weapon.... All I need is some petrol.

    Have been in touch with pirtek to get a quote. Was not aware about Corsa b/c lines. Do you know what engine sizes are compatible

    Thanks

    I'd imagine you want them from an mpi corsa b as the spi stuff ain't as great. Any petrol corsa c should work too
