Wow man, you work quickly. I applaud you for getting that HG swapped out just days after being told you needed to do so. That's pure badassery.

+1. I hate how my water neck looks hanging off the front of the motor. Next time I pull my motor apart I'm definitely going to get rid of it. If you do need a water supply for the turbo I'm sure you could fab up something more attractive than the stock piece.

Would drilling and tapping the plate for a fitting supply enough water?

Yes. But even better would be to put a splice in your heater hose instead of having a stupid water line coming out the front of your nice clean engine.

Bow down, for I am God.

Right, splice the hose and create multiple points of faelure. But hey, you're the one with the nice clean engine bay

Some of my fuel components showed up today.. Just waiting on my Rail and Aeromotive Regulator.

Well I spent the weekend in Texas for work. I managed to get in touch with Hustler..



The guy was nice enough to show me to a couple of beers and a really great meal just up the road from where he lives. Solid time.

When I got back on Sunday I was able to make some progress on my fuel system.. Nothing major but had to make sure everything worked for the conversion.

The components:

Vibrant - Braided Steel -6 AN line 2ft 11906 2
Vibrant - 6AN to 10AN Flare Adapter 10433 1
10AN Flare Plug 10444 1
Russell Line Adapter 5/16 to -6 AN CAP 644113 2
Vibrant - 90 Degree -6 hose end -6 21906 3
Vibrant - straight hose end -6 21006 2
Vibrant - Adapter Fitting -6AN x 3/8" 10222 2


My biggest concern was converting the hard lines to AN so I tested that out with my Russel 5/16 to -6AN adapter. Worked like a charm on the supply line. These fittings are offered in the traditional clip on style and then like the ones I have, a threaded cap.





However the return line was not the same size! It looks like it will require the 1/4 size line adapter by Russell. Part number 641303.


Also, started to route some of my vacuum components.

Actually, my bay is pretty damn clean. Yes I do have tentacle rape going on in there with a bazillion SS and meth hoses but it is clean.

And seriously, a rubber splice is not going to ruin your day.

BTW I don't recommend those push-lock little vaccum connectors. I have those for my meth lines and if you a) don't cut the hose super perfectly or b) the hose moves around much, or c) because random suck, it will leak.

I would redo my meth lines with SS or black aramid braid but it would cost a couple hundred dollars and I am hoping more E85 stations will open in my area making meth obsolete.

I've experienced the same with my meth lines from AEM. I've used this brand specifically in the past for high boost applications and it's been fine. Ever since Vibrant bought Synapse they've been quality.

I might end up this way. I've been running these on my wastegate, MAP sensor and BOV for quite awhile now. No problems.

Give me a fuckying break. If the connector and line leaks, it will leaks regardless of what's in it. Yes meth line typically has 100+psi in it and vacuum doesn't. Still though, it's a leaking connector.

Stop trolling me before I rape you.

LOL, exactly what I was thinking. Small difference between 30 and 100+psi.

Vibrant Performance ::.

This is a link to the product page, note these are specifically for AIR. The catalog specifies the following info:

PTFE Hose designed to withstand extreme tempatures Specs: -292F to 500F @ 100PSI withstands cryogenic to 700F+ Ideal for use on forced induction and naturally aspirated applications.

Pneumatic vacuum fittings are suitable for both ambient and pressurized air up to 150PSI.


I'm pretty sure these are not intended to be used with fluids of any type.

Super clean build, engine compartment, car, everything. I have been wanting to go that route for some time now with the push lock style fittings. The only question I have is, are there fittings that thread into the Tial wastegate? Because I know those are not 1/8 npt threads and I dont want to screw the threads up in it. Is there a push lock fitting that is threaded to fit in that?

They aren't 1/8NPT, they are 1/8 straight through. I threaded one of these in by hand on my Tial and it seated just fine with teflon, a number of guys thread in 1/8NPT fittings with some teflon.
