X2 on Aeromotive, Do they cost more, Yes.

It's as simple as, "You get what you pay for." With EFI, make sure you use a two filter set-up before and after the pump. We use a 100 micron filter before and a 10 micron filter after. Your injectors will thank you for it.

I looked around for a while and the least expensive place I found belive it or not was industrial liquidators, they sell the the earls performance stuff BUT there is a huge difference between some of the AN fittings... I ended up getting the XRP fittings(old keith black design which cuts a grove into the braided hose...best design to use btw) and used a 100 micron earls prefilter before a 5 micron canister type fuel filter. I did look on line at jegs but unless you know for sure what sizes ect. it is difficult topeice together what you need and get it right the first time. If you have the time to wait for shipping I would go that route first.

Also be sure you get the right psi pump for your efi as the pressures are different for efi and carb...

The earls filters are junk.

And BTW; never run earls push on hose, as it has a tendency to come off very easily.

Thw 100 micron filter is from Aeromotive, the 10 micron is a canister style NAPA Gold filter.

the 100 micron filter does its job very well(I really like being able to clean it out rather than just replacing it), but I still run the canister to catch the little stuff...but I agree 100% with the push on hose...JUNK!!!..just like the rice rocket engine dress up kit WAJ.

If you want a descent cheap inline pump get a e2000 from auto zone. It's actually a ford replacement pump. there around 100 bucks and have a 1 year warranty. The more expensive pumps are worth it but it all depends on your budget. Definitely spend the money on good filters no matter what. good filters will save pumps and injectors!

As far as plumbing I would use the blue aeroquip push lock (socketless) line.

I'm looking at aeromotive pumps and filters ,but how much pressure does a 3.4 toyota need? My friend says it should run on 45 psi true? or do I need more?
