JEGS Pro-Flo 350 Series Braided Hose - JEGS

It weighs like half as much as steel braided and does not conduct electricity it is also 10x as easy to cut and assemble (no prickly stainless steel threads)

I have just got the same kit for my 2560R. Trust me, nothing in the kit fits a t2,t28 etc. Worse, some of the connectors arrived dented.

"Not for use in extreme heat situations." Whatever that means...?

SS is considered the basic performance standard because it's been proven repeatedly. You can get reasonably priced SS from Abe on this board, or DIY from Summit without breaking the bank. Stop trying to reinvent the wheel and/or cheap out on a critical-failure part. Personally I'd rather skip buying beer for a couple of weeks and know that the next time I'm turning 8 grand in 3rd gear I'm not going to pop a low-quality line that I saved $5 on.

Same, I bought it taking a risk. I guess sometimes they pay off and sometimes they don't.

I solved the oil feed with a simple adapter I got at a hardware store, I don't know what I'm going to do about the oil return line though. I guess you live and learn.

These seller does not know what they are selling. It's a
waste of time after tearing everything Apart and finding that parts does not fit. Sometimes paying a few $$$ more for quality product from begi or flyin miata makes more sense
