No other filter after the main filter, the only thing after it is the FPHE.

inline filter pressure?

Postby gary » Sun Jul 05, 2009 6:28 pm

There is a clear inline filter in summit racing catolog for 12.99 that is rated @ 6-7 psi...with a nylon element(spectre industries 2220). If I put this inline pre-ip, could pressure be a problem?

yes, depending where in the fuel circuit you place it if the lift pump puts out more pressure than the filter is rated for.
