Yes it can be run inline so long as it will flow enough fuel to not obstruct the flow otherwise. As these pieces were intended for OEM applications they didn't have to flow 1000hp worth of fuel, which is why they are often run in parallel like this.
Two models of this ECU are released-- the 99-04 Mustang GT/Mach1/ 99-02 Cobra model https://www.diyautotune.com/product/...v8-mustang-gt/
And the 03-04 Terminator model https://www.diyautotune.com/product/...plug-and-play/

Thanks for participating / contributing Jerry! You thoughts and observations are always welcome, especially on this kind of stuff.
I am going to double down on what Jerry said, John.
While I have to admit the packaging looks very attractive, the unspoken question is what sort of flow capacity does the combination of the two pieces support. I got initially caught up in how sexy the packaging looks. However, if you are reducing a -10 AN line's flow capacity back to say a -8 AN line flow capacity, even as attractively packaged as it is I would be reluctant to use it on a medium horsepower (650 and up) or larger engine.
Although no where near as pretty as the integrated package the parallel plumbing solution is preferable. The reduced flow capacity of the sensor does not affect its ability to measure ethanol content and the -10 AN line size that is being run in parallel is adequate for most engines even up to the 1500+ HP threshold.
I like to be a little conservative when it comes to fueling. You can always come back and take a whisker more fuel away but if you hurt the engine the only thing you take away is a broke race car.

Currently running a -8 feed & return and plan on upgrading the blower down the road. When I eventually swap out the blower I planned on installing the flex fuel sensor for future use. I wanted to install in the return line and hoped it’s sizing would work. My max HP goal is 800 and I like the look of the product. My question on pricing and availability is for the flex fuel sensor.
ECU will be after the blower just preparing for it, that’s why I’ll be following this tread closely.
