hmm. I have 2 aluminum ones and a steel one. I ended up using the steel on in the pump, then used aluminum for the rest of the the lines, except the high pressure lines on the steering rack.

Yea I kept the soft line from the rack and cut the line where it turns into hard line by the trans and used a compression fitting. A LOT easier

Yes, that is possible.
I hope I don't run into any problems with the PS system haha.

I found my fittings...they were at the bottom of the big box from TS for the intake manifold, sweet.

All I need to figure out after work today are the fittings that I am going to need for coolant lines for the turbo..should be easy enough once I know the thread size for the center housing.

Any idea what size the threads are on a Turbonetics T3 Super 60 for the cooling lines on the center compressor housing?? I can't find it anywhere and my car is an hour away...so not easy to get to and check.
