akotten-- I'm so sorry this happened to you. But i'm glad you are ok and that the damage wasn't worse. First thing I would do is check the lid of the WW tank. I think it's far more likely that meth sloshed out of there, started the fire which damaged the meth feed line going into the pump. The meth lines should be more than capable of withstanding under hood temps as they are rated up to 800F and 350psi. Underhood temps rarely go above 250F even during racing conditions and the feed tubing doesn't even see any pressure. That's why its far more likely that the fire started elsewhere and then damaged the meth lines. When you get a chance to inspect the car again, please call us and ask for me. It would be a good idea to find the exact cause of the fire so it doesn't happen again or to anyone else.
