Hi Guys,

Would 8mm fuel pipe be OK to use on a 2.0L Zetec Silver top running the standard injection system?

I use 8mm on the Jag 3litre engine, not a problem

8mm o/d copper on silvertop with Jenveys no probs. no drop in fuel pressure on RR at 7k.

8mm OD should be fine - 8mm bore is good for up to 500 bhp.

Hope that helps

Hi guys,

If you read the article below, they have pipe size as 8mm in side diameter. Most below talk about 8mm outside diameter?
For the 2.0l Zetec on standard injection, should it be 8mm outside or inside diameter?

Many thanks!
