ACE Hardware was my best friend...easily found all stuff for fuel rail... fittings, tap, and drill (already had in drill set)

little more difficult finding the pan stuff, but i used 3/8 fittings for oil drain. and someone loaned me the tap and bit, and I passed on to another. thepipe father.
prepare to spend $ on a 1/2 tap. best to borrow one...if you can

goodluck

As mentioned many times the dual feed stuff can be found at ur local parts store...

FYI Begi sells a drill/tap on their site for I believe $20, some people have had a hard time finding these...

I just went to HF, and bought a $100 tap/die set....used what I needed and returned 2weeks later, no questions asked...gotta love that place

ACE Hardware, Lowe's, Home Depot, Builder's Square, etc., will all provide you with a 3/8" NPT to nipple fitting.

If you want AN, try anplumbing.com, pegasus, racerpartswholesale, summit, jegs, etc.

What would you guys recommend? Koto, you think its worth a few extra bucks to pick that up and have reliability and pimpness...and to use that piece, THAT one goes directly into the pan after I drill/tap it...jb weld until my car weighs more and that is a wrap?

I just a 5/8th slip on fitting on the bottom of my turbo...so I need to buy the line and get the fittings.

I like the idea about returning that stuff to HF...lol. Its like the wallmart of tools.
