    I'm not seeing any "upgrade" except you replace something and hope that the line is ok further up to attach a plastic line to.

    This isn't taking any money out of my pocket.

    I'm saying from an upgrade perspective, I'll be the one to get technical here, this isn't a better filter, higher flow or anything like that. It's a fix, not an upgrade. You guys are fixing a small area of rust with plastic line.

    For a DD.car.. I consider this an upgrade, not a huge one, but an upgrade none the less.. one where I never have to fight with a potentially frozen line nut again, at least not in the fuel system. It's an improvement over the stock design. I, nor anybody, claim it to add style, power, or a fuel flow increase. Just a quicker more reliable fuel filter change.

    The purpose of this "mod" is to eliminate the threaded fitting that so many struggle with.

    I never doubted this how-to in how it makes it easier to change filters out in the future if yours is rusted on. I said its also a good time to consider "upgrading" to AN....

    Well its an upgraded repair. BUT did you folks also know that those compression fittings are restrictive to fuel flow. So just an FYI. I used to have a source on double female plastic splices (filter would snap in both sides if need be, used to get them for cars with cruddy tanks to install two quick connect filters in line. Then use a compression fitting and STEEL nipple line on car side, nothing pushing inside plastic line to reduce flow. That little tube onthe plastic line side of union is to keep the seal from crushing the plastic tubing. It works fine on a stock engine, old rust taurus, etc. but for higher output cars you may find fuel restrictions.
