Default Blew my fuel feed line today :(

luckily it happened as i was about 15 ft from the driveway the line looks like it just ballooned and burst oh well a bunch of gas everywhere and a new peice of hose and i am now right as rain. just lucky it waited till i got home to go instead of when i was doing 80+ on the way, or in boost.

That sounds odd. Did you use fuel line meant for fuel injection?

Regular fuel injection hose (SAE30R9) is required to have higher working pressure rating (125psi) and minimum burst pressure rating (900psi).

If your hose has a number between R7 and R9 it is only a medium pressure hose. R6 and it's made for CARB cars, only 40psi working.

I tested my lines to 150psi for about 2-3 minutes constant and verified they won't burst.

it was the section of line just before my pressure gauge so it was only like 1 1/2 inches long i thought i used injection line but being as short as it was there where no markings on it. anyway i have the best i could find on there now. i had been running that peice of line for a few weeks.
