Ok been thinking about these 2 kits for a while. The snappy rc kit says does not work with DBXL on their sight but I've read several reviews that claim it can be fitted with some modifications.(which I'm not opposed to)

the other kit is the full force kit. (I just have to reuse my factory gommet)

has anyone tried these in their DBXL? And if so did you actually notice the engine running better?
Thanks...

I have the FFRC one on my DBXL.
It's wasn't MADE for the DBXL though.
The brass fittings were loose in the rubber groment....i mean REALLY loose.
Had to change the grommet out in order for the brass fittings to stay and not move around all the time.

I have snappy rc fuel system in my Baja and it's the best mod I've done so far, no more vapor lock which was Soo annoying. also if u do mod the tank to fit the snappy rc one then u won't have problems with the fittings being loose. I think it's a good idea

A new grommet I can handle 👍

Well thanks guys! The snappy rc kit is on it's way! It comes with a new grommet and the FFRC pickup and return tubes. I figure if the grommet doesn't fit I can make my own. I'll post up when it gets here.
