DDMWorks LNF Fuel Filter Kit

Guys i'm out in the market starting to get some "goodies" for the car....Not trying to push it to the limit like some of you here but at least i want to make it better.

Now in terms of petrol in Greece things are not good especially when it comes to "purity" so i was wondering if this would do anything or is it just for show ? Anyone using it ?

LNF Fuel Filter Kit by DDMWorks

I've had my injectors already fail on me once at 15k miles so i don't want the same thing getting repeated again.

I have it and have had for years. Never had an issue with injectors but I don't know if the DDM filter is the reason for that.
I would DEFINATELY buy one again.

I'm actually worried that it "may" reduce performance.......

The fueling in these cars is good to about 500hp, if you're worried about this blocking fuel in some way, MAYBE it'll only be good to 495hp after this lol, it's not going to hurt performance at all.

Tech God, is this true of the Sky Redline and the Opel GT? I ask only because the Opel has the larger injectors and I would think this would give them a bit more of a power ceiling than the Redline.

Remember the the fuel filter is after the low pressure pump, not after the high pressure.

So no way for us to "shield" the low-pressure pump ? Already failed on me once :P

I've seen people on this forum/on Facebook run about that much before going with the 5th injector setup to break the 500whp mark, I believe it's true of both, the limit not being the injectors necessarily, but the HPFP running out of fuel.
I remember someone taking one of those to a shop who stated they can't really upgrade it easily, so the only real options are the 5th injector, zzp cams with the larger fuel lobe, and a port injection manifold as well.

Guys anyone knows if we can get DDMWorks products from Amazon or somewhere else ? Their shipping to Greece is killing me (50-90USD to ship just the fuel filter).

Have you called them regarding shipping or are you just using the calculator on their site? Certainly best to call them for a more accurate price.

Where i live if i was to call them I'd have to pay roughly 5 bucks just for the 1st minute (imagine what would happen if the call lasted 3-4 minutes in total) and if in the end the price is the same I'd be in several bucks for nothing.

I did ask them in their FB page but no reply.

Email them. Dave is usually pretty good at getting back to folks. You may also want to add "DDM Works" in the subject line of this post so he knows to look into it.

The Opel GT is equiped with the same injectors like the redline.

The injectors from the ZZP page

Opel HP Direct Injection Fuel Injectors

BOSCH 0 261 500 112
0815199
12636111

are from the Opel Insignia Turbo 2.0 and the Saab 9-5 2.0ti 16v.
