I'm trying to install the feed line but there isn't much room between the damper and the fuel filter. Is it ok to remove the fuel dampers? If not could I remove the oem hoses and just use regular fuel hose.
Yes and no, I do not believe there are many adverse effects besides turbulence in the fuel flow to the injectors possibly effecting spray patterns. Yes you're fine to run without them its not going to hurt anything. No, you should make them work because factory engineering > some guy with bread in his name on the internet.
