Just curious, what's the point of getting braided fuel lines?

I'm sure you can get it made if you pay a shop enough money.

More firm brake feel, more positive braking, shorter braking distances (barely). Looks good too. The rubber hoses expand under heavy braking giving that slushy feel.
Don't get me wrong, it's not even close to having a big brake kit installed, but if you got the money and want to take out the slushy brake feel, get some braided lines.

But no, I don't know where to get them.

Looking for fuel lines, not brake lines.

EKam, the reason I want to do my fuel lines is because I have a nasty bend in one of them around the filter, so I need to replace the line anyway. I'd just rather do it with something that's better and easier to do, not to mention likely cheaper (Ordering from toyota would be some major $$ anyway for hardline).

With any braided lines, it would be pain in the ass if there's a leak and you have to locate where it is coming from.

Either way fuel lines are not cheap but I think sticking with OEM would be a safer choice for the most part.

Sorry I couldn't help you much on that one. :(

What you need is some stainless steel braided hose and AN fittings.

The hose comes in different sizes and grades. Same with the fittings.

-3 = 3/16"
-4 = 1/4"
-6 = 3/8"
-8 = 1/2"
-10 = 5/8"

Its rated in 1/16". So -4 = 4 x 1/16" = 1/4".

The smallest I've seen is -3, which is used for brake lines.

Summit Racing (www.summitracing.com) carries Earl's and Autoquip braided hose and AN fittings.

Where I get my stuff from (http://www.amstreetrod.com). They carry Earl's braided hose and AN fittings.

Or you can try looking at a local hydraulic shop or places the sell performance plumbing products (braided hose and AN fittings).

Feed line from the tank to the bottom of the fuel filter is 3/8" or so.

Return line from fpr (fuel pressure regulator) to tank is 1/4" or so.

I forgot to tell you that you can also get hardline. However you'll need a pipe bender and a flaring tool.

I'd rather just go stainless, since I'm assuming that's just as durable and more flexible (literally).

The line I need is the one to the bottom of the filter. Thanks, 88. I'll order some braided next pay. :)
