Default Aeroquip Teflon SS lines

No question, just adding to the knowledge pool.

I got the Aeroquip SS/Teflon "racing" hose from Summit for it's higher temp rating (+450F/-100F). It has a serious draw back, though. The bend radius is quite a bit higher than synthetic rubber equivalents like Perform-O-Flex. The SS hose ends only work with the Teflon hose so I'm stuck with them. I can still make it work, though, so I'm not out $150. I just have to keep the bends wide and watch for kinks.

BTW, I even searched before I ordered them. "Teflon" gets you 10,000 threads w/ Teflon tape and "Aeroquip Teflon" gets nothing.

BEGI is using Teflon lines, too. I guess I'm just being a *****.
