    Default Braided P/S and A/C lines.

    Anyone converted to braided lines for the power steering, hydro boost, and A/C?? My stock 14yr old P/S line just blew out, problem is I lost 75% of my brakes and power steering after a 100 mph hit. I got it stopped but I'm not trying to have that happen at 160+.

    I know someone's done it, I just can't find it.

    I've done it. I did high pressure lines and fittings.

    Well...I don't have A/C, but I did my P/S lines.

    Those banjo bolts look sweet! Do you build the lines yourself? They aren't crimped right?

    Correct lines are built very similar to normal A.N fittings ..
    So all the fittings are reusable..
    If your using a ford ps pump from a mod motor the pump outlet fitting may need machined a little to fit..

    All the fittings are available from hydrotech braking..

    The rack fittings are the ones that baffle me some times..

    Some are STD thread some are metric .. I have even had one with one std fitting for inlet and metric out..

    The lines I ordered are just like that but I got all Russell stuff. My buddy said they are a bitch to assemble and said I should of just had Aeroquip crimp fittings on locally. I don't see how it can be that bad? I ordered rack fittings from MM thanks to Yaadmann for leading me in the right direction. All the lines, adapter fittings, hose ends, and aluminum Moroso tank with weld fittings was right around $500. I'm going to mount the tank in the fender well and route my lines differently too. Should clean up my engine bay some and keep my lines away from heat.

    Wow this thread is reading my mind.
    I don't have A/C but I want to reroute my P/S lines out from under the hood.

    This is everything I ordered. Let me know if you have any questions. This is everything you need including the reservoir tank to go AN. It replaces all the stock lines and fittings.



    The rack fittings came from Maxinum Motorsports. Here's a link.

    http://www.maximummotorsports.com/MM...004-P1001.aspx

    I already had a 3' piece of -10 stainless braided line that I'm going to be using for the pump feed line. I also already had a -10 steel male weld on fitting which is getting Tig welded to the pump inlet, I'll chop down the hose barb and weld the AN fitting in place. I also had a -6 steel male weld on fitting which is going on the hose barb on the hydroboost, same deal I'll chop off the hose barb an weld on the -6 AN fitting. This particular fitting is threaded in, I thought it was pressed in which is why I'm doing it the way I am. You can probably find an adapter fitting that goes to -6. Most guys keep the barb however because it's low pressure. But I wanted the entire system to be AN and stainless braided. So on top of what I order from Jeg's and MM, you'll need a -10 line for the pump feed, -10 steel weld on, and -6 steel weld on. Total for all this crap is probably around $600, but if I would of crashed it would have been terrible!

    I got this from a guy on SVT Performance. For the most part I went by it, but I choose to get the MM rack fittings based on Yaadman's recommendation. And they were both -6, on the little schematic they used -8 on one of them. I used all -6 like the MM fittings were designed for. I figured those guys knew what they were doing when they engineered the fittings.

    Default Braided P/S and A/C lines.

    Thanks for the list and the routing diagram is beyond AWESOME!!!
    Now here is another question, my retarded thinking I split the dam hydro boost and doing so it released the pressure inside.
    Will this re-pressurize when I hook it back up?? Or did I destroy it?

    **** that's a good question, I really can't answer that. I never split mine in half like that before. I imagine it would pressurize back up?

    I'm getting ready to put all brand new A/C back on my car. I'm doing it in braided as well. I'll create a list after I map it all out.
