That's what I'm trying to do right now. AFPR, walbro400, AN lines. But skipping the AN line from tanks will be an easy upgrade that won't need to be done twice. I can set it up where its an easy install.

Twin disc. Won't need to be upgraded.
T5 swap.
Delrin everywhere.
25 row oil cooler.

That's why the VVT motor is still in my garage not in the car. It won't be installed until its built to a point where I won't have to pull it out.

Yeah. The budget has been blown to hell on the miata for quite a while. The bad part is, the last 2 or 3 times I bought a few things for it, I knew "this will be the last things I have to buy for a while". Currently rebuilding the intercooler pipes.... Actually now that I think about it, not sure if I have enough 2.5" T-bolts. Hope so!

Ok finally got it figured out.

SS Tube sleeve and nut. From ANplumbing.

Was going to use a SS AN6-5 male to male. But $25 each so **** that. Alu is $6 each. Going to keep searching for SS but no guarantees

FWIW, I paid discounthydraulichose to make me two hoses for my oil system. Told them the length and fitting type. One was 2" too long in a very critical way (I even noted for them to error on the short side if not to spec, other was like 6" too long. Both had cheap and extremely bulky fittings, and hose was very cheap/not flexible at all. One had to be discarded, the other was used but I'll replace it one day.

Sent an email about it and no response.

Basically I'll never do business with them again.

Yeah. I fucked up. They aren't any cheaper than ANplumbing. I was looking at a non-ss fitting.

Leafy why did you say SS for the 3 bits connecting to the hardline.

codrus is that fitting you linked (6an to 1/8npt) SS? I've been trying to find it in aluminum, I found it in SS but it was like $40.

Might try this? http://www.ebay.com/itm/6-AN-AN6-Mal...hTO9Nb&vxp=mtr

The one I linked was 1/4 NPT, not 1/8. Summit doesn't seem to have a 1/8 in the same line.

The Summit page says it's "steel" with "Yellow dichromate" finish, I'm guessing that's not stainless.

I'm going to go with the aluminum one. Need to figure out the flare thing. If I can do it aluminum then its way cheaper. And the ka20 link says it works fine with aluminum tube nuts, which would be way cheaper.

Finally found the port plug I was looking for. AN | ANplumbing.com

Final list. Need to get full prices before I commit.

I haven't been on much the last few days. Did you buy ABS axles?
Do you not need the rings now?

Yes and maybe. The axles havent shown up so I'm not 100% sure they have rings. They have rings in the picture, but description doesn't specify abs

I'm stoked. I think they will be good. They even have axle nuts in the picture. Need to order one last front spindle though.

Don't. You're getting one. At least not until you inspect the ones I'm sending you.
There was a day or two in between pulling parts, and some fucktard also wanted ABS things, but was too stupid to figure it out. He/she/it tried to pry out the front sensors with a screwdriver but gave up. I just pulled the spindles and left the sensors in. It didn't changed the cost for me, so I'm just throwing them in.

They're NB spindles. So they wont work...yet. Unless I get an NB subframe sometime. (Which I would like to) But sounds good! Looking forward to it.
