I'm getting parts together for my Sniper install. Looking at 10 micron Aeromotive fuel filters and trying to decide between these two: https://www.jegs.com/i/Aeromotive/027/12347/10002/-1
and

They have an ethanol fuel blend in the pumps where we live. It will be in a vehicle that is for pleasure/weekend use. Is the one with the glass element worth the extra money/needed? Thanks.
I really like the one for the LS engines that came with my spectre drop in pump FI tank kit. It has a built in regulator at 58 psi, and, if mounted near the tank, only requires one fuel line run to the front. Here's one example, but available everywhere as it's a Corvette OEM.

This is the way I'm going to go when I get the TBI for the 69

35$ from tanks inc...
A simple filter like this is all you need. I personally always buy a simple inline filter for Dodge K-cars....they made a ton, can be found at any parts store, and even at 400+HP they have never failed me through a dozen project cars. I just go for the straight through design though...keep it simple.

As for the regulator...ALWAYS get a separate 1:1 adjustable fuel pressure regulator:

These el cheapo Ebay regulators work just fine and have also never failed me...the barbed fittings can be changed out with any fitting that is threaded for 1/8" NPT(or is it 1/4" NPT? I forget offhand, but I think 1/8th). THese are nice because they are cheap and the included gauge makes it easy to make sure the regulator is doing its job at any given time. The adjustable part comes into play if you are trying to stretch the capability of your injectors and lets you set the fuel pressure to what is suitable for your fuel system. And yes, I have used the Aeromotive equivalent of these cheap FPRs, and yes, the cheap ones work just as well as the ones 5x more expensive...probably because the only moving part in them is a diaphragm

So there is no advantage to running the return line all the way up to the engine compartment when using the Sniper?

The main advantage of the return from the engine compartment is that the fuel stays cooler by being recirculated.
