Hingstonwm, I'm looking to to a similar setup to your braided vacuum lines.

What fittings or adapters did you use to connect your AN fittings to the Tial 10mm ports? Also, what does it look like at your vacuum source? Distribution block?

Your makin' some good power, lets see a smokey burnout from you

I need to put the camera in the car and try a couple of 0-60's.

And not that I condone racing on the street, but I haven't so much as got a tease from another car. I guess that's what happens when you hot rod a 20 year old chick car.

Will get some pics up today for you. I didn't use a distribution block. Everything comes from individual ports at different locations.

Vacuum for the BOV is sourced from the intake manifold, just behind the TB.

Boost signal is sourced from the cold side charge pipe about 4 inches from the TB

Signal line for the boost gauge and fuel regulator come from the intake manifold. I could have run a tee from one source but choose to run from separate ports.

Ok thanks. I did some more research on this and the hoses you used are much more durable than silicone or fuel line. I was using fuel line before and it got loose where it wrapped around the bung and leaked.

I plan on getting the AN line tooling necessary to make these vacuum lines and also some breather lines etc. The hard part seems to be picking out the correct fittings and parts so any info is lots of help

Faeflora if you come down to do your car this weekend I'll show you how to make those hoses they are pretty simple as long as you map out what you want before hand so you don't have to buy a bunch of extra fitting.

I hope my car runs as good as this one. I guess I will have to wait and find out, I love this build it just makes me happy to see such a nice car.

those are some hardcore vacuum lines, must last forever making it one great investment. I for one am sure sick of pinched and collapsed silicone lines.

Wow, that's great. Thanks for the pics! I was having a real hard time finding that metric to AN adapter fitting. Googled for what you wrote though

10 x 1.0 -4 fitting AN

and found it right away at pegasus: http://www.pegasusautoracing.com/pro...asp?RecID=6953

Is that a washer underneath the adapter? And is that some teflon tape I see too?

To be honest I did it because I wanted the clean look the AN fittings provide, But the strength of the braided hose is a definite plus.

Yes it is a crush washer under the fitting, (think copper crush washer on banjo fittings). I did use teflon tape on all of my npt fittings. It may be overkill, given the taper design of npt threads, but I wanted to be sure I had no leaks.

Glad I could help out!

The AN waste-gate line is probably the best thing you could ever do it cost me around $100 bucks to do mine but I do not have to worry about it melting and blowing my **** up. I have had more than one friend one being Slow_Sc3 that have blow engines because their cheap runner lines melted and went from 10 psi to 20 psi in a split second them BBOOOOMM!!! its all over.lol Best investment ever.

hingstonwm - Your engine bay is what I strive for on my car. Now that I have all my wiring pretty much figured out so the next time the motor comes out it is time for a super wire tuck like yours.

OH NO! You boosted it!

Im trying so hard not to boost mine and here I find just the set up I was pondering. Im going to run my car on the track with its 207whp next season and dial in the suspension and work out all the chassis bugs. Then stroke/ITBs or Boost...

Excellent work as usual. Thanks for posting it all up. You were a big part of my inspiration.
