Fuel for WRX engine in non wrx car

Ok my cousin has this kit car porsche looking like thing that he put a wrx engine in. Had a VW engine to begin with. He then found out he dosent have enought time for the swap so, He ask me if i wanna make a few $$$ im like sure. light ass car and 230 hp . Body its all fiberglass. Well i have a few question on hooking the feul up for this beeyotch. I see that their are 3 lines which look like they would be for fuel, located buy the oil fill cap and dip stick.

I know their should be a Fuel in and Return but what is the third one for?

Could some one explain or maybe draw me a picture of what lines if for what.

Also what would be a good inline fuel pump for this engine. My cousin bought a Intank pump which isnt going to work or its to much work to make it work.

Also is a fuel pressure regultor needed if so what would be a good choice for that?

Thanks for any input you many supply me with

the third one, is the smallest....its a vapor line for the evap system.

not needed.....you have a pressure line, which is the one that goes to the rail, and the one that leaves the regulator is the return line.

the stock regulator will work fine....

as for a fuel pump, you will need to get an inline high pressure pump....capable of about 55-60psi.

You're going to need at least 60 on a stock turbo, 70+ on aftermarkets; or insane Injector size to make up the IDC.

Stock turbo at 16psi will run you 59psi on fuel.

Don't know much on that brand, Walboro's hit 75-80 PSI.

You can pick one up for $90's 255lph High Pressure.
