I remade my oil return line since I had mine.
It was -8an and everyone says to get -10 an, so I did.
I ordered the fittings and tube from ANPlumbing.

-2x straight 1/2" pipe thread to -10an (part n: 981610 )
-2x -10 to -10an tube straight swivel seal (part n: 800110 )
-3x ft ss braided hose (part n: 300010 or 400100)

It cost less than on ebay and you can get a 3ft. of -10an stainless steel line that can trim.

While we're on the subject, where can I get braided SS fuel injection hose? I looked around on the web last night, but couldn't find anything rated for higher pressure. And can you cut and terminate the stuff yourself, or do you buy a premade hose?

I want to do this, minus the purple rail

Earls state that they speedflex hose teflon lined (http://www.anplumbing.com/shop/index...ept=Speed-Flex) can stand every type of fuel and hi psi.

Almost every hose from Earls (my favorite) Aeroquip, Russell and Goodridge will handle fuel and high pressures with ease.

I have no grasp on this kind of stuff. What size lines and what fittings do I need? I don't want to order wrong parts. Those fittings are expensive.

Sorry guys, semester is coming to an end and all my finals are coming up, trying to find a full-time position, etc. I don't have have the block feed fitting or any drain flanges, but I can get anything else. Again, very sorry I have been slacking lately, let me know if I can help you, or even just point you in the right direction.
Thanks
-Michael-

Best option is you want to go custom is to find a speed shop in your area that sells this stuff. In my case it was easy since there's a shop called VW Paradise that's on my way to work, and they've got a massive "EARL'S" banner on the side of the building. You may need to hit the phone book however.

Second best is Summit Racing. They have a good parametric search engine that lets you hunt for fittings by size, material, termination, etc. Just keep in mind the following:

1: Anybody's -(x)AN female threaded connector will mate to anybody else's -(x)AN male threaded fitting.

2: The same is not true to connector to hose, even within the same manufacturer. The "Applications" tab for either (on the summit site) will list applications. For instance, this page: http://store.summitracing.com/partde...4906713+400041 tells me that this particular hose end (Earl's Swivel-Seal) is compatable with Auto-Flex, Perform-O-Flex, and Pro-Lite 350 hoses. It also happens to be compatable with hoses made by Russell (ProFlex) and Summit (Stainless) based on having the same inner and outer dimensions. I'd guess that the Aeroquip and Mr. Garket hoses are also compatable, as their O.D. is only .003" greater and they have the same I.D.
