Fuel system. 'Bolt-On' I spose.

I have not decided on a pump. It's between the lpe twins or the squash twins.

First step of my build is a ysi + tq converter + LT's on a stock l99 block.
Second step is to switch to a full build lsx and up the boost to 18lbs. lol.

So I'm leaning towards the Squash to be able to support both stages of my build. My questions are,

Is it hard to install for a fuel system newbie?
My dad will assist but has only done fuel lines for near stock pre 90s cars.

Anything else I should get at the same time?
(I have id850s)

Squash or lpe?

My LPE twins have been bolt-on and forget about. Not a peep for 18 months. Very happy.

You have to drop the rear cradle, unbolt fuel tank straps and remove fuel tank. You can remove the fuel bucket lock ring with a hammer and punch but I brought the whole assembly to the dealer service dept and had them reinstall the lock ring (Takes 10 seconds), since it's next to impossible without the special tool for it.

Reconnect the fuel/power lines and you're done.

Ok cool. Wasn't sure what has changed since his day. Easy as pie.

Yeah, once the tank is out, literally remove one bucket, and plug and play the other complete bucket, at least with the LPE system. Probably a 3 hour job start to finish, including the time it takes to drop the exhaust and cradle and tank, but not including the dealer trip. Little longer if you have never been into the suspension before and don't know exactly what you're doing.
