What is the summit part #?

How was it shipped, in a roll, or pre-bent?

Sorry, no data on whether or not you'll have heat problems. My guess is no. Heat is passed through air poorly.

Cool

Wait and see is one way to tell, but being winter, you never know.

You could also do what I did. From the firewalk forward I covered my fuel lines with heater hose. This insulates quite a bit and is a nice, cushy cover for the lines for when a rock jumps up off the trail and tries to play "lets screw with Mike's Jeep."

Since mine are orange, it does not look cool, but it seems to work very well on my set up, but I have no headers and am only running a 258 w/ FI.

You could also wrap the headers, but I have not seen this done in a while.

I was running a 304 with the aluminum pipe from summit. 3/8 i believe. There will not be a problem with heat transfer as long as they are not touching or within 1/2" of the headers. Mine ran great.

Ummm... been wondering about gas lines... is aluminum a better choice than stainless? I'm going to install some new lines in about a month on my 86 CJ7. I was tending toward aluminum also... what made you decide on it rather than stainless?

Thanks.

Junger i went with aluminum for the only reason it was cheaper.stainless pre-bent lines will run about 90 bucks.I bought my line from summit in a coil.It was easy to work with,u can bend it with your hands and u dont need a bender.Summit part #3131 is the 3/8 aluminum line, I believe the lengh was 20 feet,I had alot left over.
