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

none of it's necessary. its going to be a 250whp focus.

but then again neither is re-powdercoating stuff a different color after putting 0 miles on the original powdercoating. thats just how 'dre rolls!

ballin' outta control

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
