Fuel filter adapter question

It appears that the WH fuel filter adapter has a smaller ID than the original filter. This includes the aftermarket adapters. It is also smaller than the ID of the 481 filter. Does anyone think this could restrict fuel flow?

Short answer, "No" The orifice dimension provides an adequate volume and pressure to the rail in the Husky Jack, OEM-Engineering and WCC/UTP models. I believe that Oemy already ran flow and pressure tests but we'd have to go and check his website for that article.

You could have a 1/2" holes in the adapter but the inlet and outlet line dimensions is what controls the flow based on the fuel pump pressure.
