87 GT carbed...right now I have this filter and Im thinking it might be too small because my FPR (holley) is set at 6psi and sometimes it will creep up to 9 and fall back down to 6

this is the one I have right now...maybe too small causing a restriction? I dont even know what this filter is a replacement for I just figured a fuel filter is a fuel filter and I used it, seeing as how Im dealing with an aftermarket type setup. In reality this filter is about the diameter of a half dollar coin and about 3 inches long

I thought about this Mr Gasket clear filter and although its cool looking and all, Im not sure it flows any better seeing as how its about the same size??

The filter is before or after the FPR? You said its set for 6 and creeps up to 9? If the fuel filter was to small wouldnt it drop below 6 and then creep back up? sorry those are more questions then an answer it was just a thought, Might be a problem with the regulator

the filter is after the regulator...I wasnt sure if the electric pump was trying to push 6psi of fuel in and then a fuel filter too small was restricting it causing a pressure backup giving me a 9psi reading (I have a fuel pressure gauge plumbed into the regulator)

thanks

I would recommend a clear sight fuel filter, and that first one seemed a little tiny to me. I've used the clear one and it's always worked for me. Not all filters are the same.
