    All the standard fuel lines have special clips on them. I'm sure jubalee clips would be fine but I wouldn't want to be messing with the fuel lines too much unless I had a leak.

    I'm going with braided too, the clips on the fuel rail side are normal clips, but the other end is different, I can't work it out

    Not noticed them karl, will have to investigate.

    My only concern's are, is the above piping suitable and will jubilee clips actualy be able to compress the braided hose to the fittings applying enough pressure so they wont pop off, lol.
