The fittings I linked to were normal AN-8 fittings, I linked the wrong ones.
The full flow fittings are about 30 a piece from Aeroflow. Aeroflow Performance Products - Professional Fluid Transfer Systems and Performance Products
I never said I needed
Pushlock, Pushlock is just one way to make the return hose, and as a general consensus has said, "don't skimp on the hoses." It would make sense to build a quality return line.
Pushlock offers flexibility, and easy installation. The fittings are fully adjustable. If there are other alternatives I'd love to hear them. Ultimately I am still trying to get a kit together that has everything I need for a quality turbo build, while saving money in comparison to the FM II Hydra kit.
My kit currently stands at this estimated price point without oil/water lines. I am open to any and all suggestions on how to go about getting my lines in a cost effective, but quality manner.
1. t25 from sr20 -- $120
2. EV14 60lb/630cc injectors -- $160
+ extenders / adapters / lower seals -- $77
3. MS3x -- $800
+ EBC --$47
4. Synapse BOV -- $189
5. Intercooler kit --$339
7. Boost Gauge -- $11 (will upgrade this)
8. EGR block off plate -- $26
9. FM mani/dp -- $749
10. oil line kit -- $45
