Using a 99-02 Camaro Fuel pump (combining the supply and return of the pump into a Y and running directly to the fuel rails

tried searching but cant find answer.

No regulator? For what you have, stock size lines will be plenty.

Not sure. I think it's a metric size.

Regulator is in the fuel pump

What is the stock line size for LS1 ?

Going in 1980 C3 corvette. It had 2 rails, one 3/8 and one 5/16. But im running lines on other side so i need to run a new line. Will use Summit Racing® Stainless Steel Hose SUM-230620. Not running E85 or ethanol.

I have a bunch of 5/16 6AN fittings so i hope i can use them and the -6AN hose i have

AN hose numbers are the size. The 6 stands for 6/16" or 3/8". 8 stands for 8/16" or 1/2". -6 or 3/8" will support 850HP with good swept fittings unless there is to much rise from tank to motor.
