im thinking about getting a fuel filter for my buggy now. so would it be ok to just cut the line as is and install the fuel filter? or will i need to shorten the line any?
You can cut and install. Just make sure to unscrew the filter and seal the threads with silicone. A leaking fuel filter turns into a tuning nightmare and a bad day.

So the pressure line is the one that makes a differance not the fuel line.

I would say the fuel line length makes a bigger difference than the pressure line. Most people run the same length press line give or take a few inches & maybe a pressure reserve canister(empty filter can)for some people. From what I see around 8" or little under is average pressure line length.

So let's put basic length to start from...

Fuel line 10''
Pressure line 8-10"

Or no
