Here is the Situation:
I replaced my Dead 1995 4.6 with a used 1996 4.6 and the Fuel Rails are slightly in a different place when it comes to hooking them up.

Does anyone know what kind of Hose to use to run the lines? How difficult is it?
Can anyone show pictures of this completed?

I know the first thing most of you will say is Why didn't you do a "PI" Swap.
It's Simple . . . $ $ $ ! With Gas at $3.15 a gallon I didn't have the funds for anything else.

I did this on my 393 because the original lines were damaged. It wasn't hard, just make sure to use fuel injection hose. What I did is use the original metal section of the lines which brings them up into the engine compartment, and then I cut off the original hard plastic lines where they are attached to the metal lines, and used the high pressure fuel line with some hose clamps.

Unfortunately I didn't take any pics of the process. If you follow the fuel lines back to where they come into the engine bay, that is where the metal lines end, and you have to start the flexible lines. Also if you look under the passenger side, you will see hard lines coming forward from the fuel filter. Basically disconnect those 2 connections, and cut the factory lines in the engine compartment, and the metal lines will come down and out of the vehicle. Now use a razor blade to carefully cut off what's left of the plastic part of the line, and put the new fuel line on in place of it, keeping track of which was the feed and which is the return line. On the other end, you need to cut the quick-connect fittings off the original lines, and put them in the other end of the new flexible line. Once you start on it, its pretty self-explanitory. You'll figure it out.
