Just wondering.. based on what factor do you select the fuel filter for your application?

Currently I am running a glass fuel filter that I am planning to change due to obvious hazards caused by glass filters. I want to change to something that will not affect the performance of the car.

69 vette here with...
GM 502 crate motor.
4 barbell Holley carb.
Holley electrical pump mount at the rear close to the gas tank.
Regulator mounted under the hood.

Thanks in advance.

Most aftermarket fuel filters come down to looks rather than function. One of the best flowing filters believe it or not is off a late model Chevy full size truck. It is a good 3" in diameter and about four or five inches long with screwed fittings at each end. If you can place that on the frame rail out of sight that is the way I would go, rather cheap and very effective.

Hi Vince,
I should have clarified.
I am looking for a 3/8th inline filter to mount right before the carb.

I am also planning to install a fuel filter before the fuel pump after I am done with this project.

The criteria that's important for me is that.
1) It should not leak
2) It should not rust, break or melt.
3) Should not restrict fuel flow.

I have been considering AC Delco GF 481 which is very popular among Corvette folks. Just want to make sure that it's free flowing.
