My 67 was originally a 327 210 hp car. The fuel line looks like 5/16. The 327 is now probably about 300hp or so with 350 being the goal down the road. Do I need to go to a 3/8 fuel line? I assume this means changing the fuel sending unit as well as the rest of the line. Thanks

I would change it to avoid starvation later on. Perhaps the 5/16" line is okay for your particular application but, if you are like me or if you are like the majority of us in here, then you will never have enough power and later on you will more than likely have to change it anyway. And, yes, you would need to install the correct sending unit as well.
