Re: fuel lines

Yes but I guess up to so much power as they run higher fuel pressure on efi systems..
Are you intending to use efi pump and lower pressure through low Lb fuel reg? Keep return system ?

Re: fuel lines

I think the corty's had plastic fuel lines too so I'd be upgrading to larger metal lines.
They shouldn't cost much and at least you'll know they'll flow enough.
