Ted, an AN fitting is a single flare compression style fitting that requires 0 teflon tape to get a perfect seal... but it's also quite expensive.

Those are even more expensive. Needed 2 banjo bolts to -6an adapters for my turbo cooling. They were wrong size and custom order. Had to take a $78 hit for those bastards! I'm just gonna have to sell those Earl's banjo's on ebay or something. fml lol.

Had to use non-banjo fittings and angle them. Not my num 1 choice, but don't have many options unless I spend $140 to get a complete kit from Turbonetics with their custom fittings they don't sell seperage. Maybe I'll call and ask just for those as I dont need their hoses and other crap.

Yeah, I am at over $1k for stainless lines, fittings, etc. that goes along with them. Along with $800 for my custom cooling system and $300 for powersteering system

qft, but it's andrei's car so he can spend money however he wants.

for my custom car i'm designing i think it's necessary, the whole thing is going to be custom anyways and i plan on driving it hard so i want to have good fittings and line to give it good performance, and that race car look of course. although my custom car will only have ~180hp... at first
