I actually just finally got around to installing one on my '93 bravada saturday (9/13). If you do this I suggest replacing the fuel pressure regulator also. I would steer clear of autozone, they have always screwed something up the last several times I went there so I'm done with that f*&%'n place. I got mine at napa and they had to order it but the fpr they had in stock. Two other suggestions, first, you might consider buying/renting a fuel pressure gauge and check your pressure before and after the install (search around about how to preform a leak down test). Second, the torx bolt that holds the retaining plate which holds the fuel supply/return lines in place can be a major pia sometimes. I had to chisle mine to break it loose, its a t-30 head fyi. Hope it all goes smooth for ya.

Most parts stores will list it as a fuel return line. It is part number 55163 and is made by dorman (help!, motormite)

If you do not mind waiting, check out Lindertech.com. They also have an updated FPR kit which uses the much less problematic 96+ FPR and comes with the adapters to make it work in the CPI spider.

Yes, they are a much better design than the older ones. As with anything, it can fail. When comparing the failure rate of the SCFI FPR with the CPI FPR, the SCFI unit is hands down better.
