    That does look a lot better! Great idea

    I hope it didn't cost much to make the improvement.....

    Not much. It makes me want to get stainless coolant lines now. The thought of an fittings all the way around would be nice clean and easy. I should look around for some stuff to sell. I could make that happen if I actually got rid of my last bits.

    I made my own coolant lines with aluminum tubing and a hand mandrel set (like for brake lines. I accidentally bought aircraft aluminum, which was much harder to bend. I also ordered a flare kit. You can flare the tubing to accept compression fittings, -AN, etc. I have reservations about braided coolant lines rubbing through other components. If you do, get the coated ones, or sheath them.

    I’ve heard aluminum is prone to breaking with vibration. I’d be all for hard lines, I guess it’s a matter of supporting them to not vibrate. I’ve Have access to flaring equipment, I’ve done my brake lines. I’m going to look into this.

    Running good so far. I’m running at 7 psi what I was running at 12 psi with the 1.6. I’ll turn it up soon!

    Great numbers. Are you using boost control? You get Max hp so early, compared to me.

    Re: '91 Grabber

    Yes I’m running EBC. I feel it pulls hard all the way through and doesn’t want to fall off like the 1.6. I should prob keep my eyes open for a 2871 and a 99 head to rebuild,lol. In all reality I’m just hoping it all stays together.
