1994 580 EXT EFI fuel filter location

I have a 1995 EXT with carbs and found the fuel filter under the hood in the gas line.

I also picked up a 1994 EXT EFI Mountain Cat. I can't find an inline fuel filter. Before I go tearing everything apart, does anyone know where the fuel filter is on the EFI models? Is it in the gas tank with the fuel pump? Is it under the cowling inline? Even in the parts manual I can't find a fuel filter.

Thanks for any help.

There should be no inline filter as it will reduce rail pressure and performance and unless it is a high pressure one there is a risk of it bursting.
