So here's how it's going to go:
Since no one can go 2 pages without bitching here, or on their Facebook pages, these are the rules for this specific thread. (these are now posted on the first page as well)

-Paying vendors/sponsors; you may display new items you're working on, or have completed, even post a link to the thread in the Sponsors Marketplace if you are selling the item currently.

-Non-vendors; you are ripping us off. If you're not supporting the site, we're not supporting your product. Do not post your products here, period.

-Individual members, you may feel free to review, comment on, or bash any products that you personally have in your posession, or have used on your car (please use photos of said product on your car)

-If someone asks for suggestions on a specific brand or sellers product and you feel they need some guidance, use your PM function. It's not that hard.

-If you don't have thick skin, don't bother posting in here, you're going to get your feelings hurt

For those that keep complaining that "this thread isn't what it used to be" It's YOUR fault. Step up and make a difference. The old thread is gone, we've requested all of our old info over a dozen times and we're not getting it. Nothing we can do about it, let's move on.

Lets get this one going again!

How to convert your stock fuel lines to AN:

So im sure many of you are not sure how to convert your stock fuel lines to AN, so I will try to help out! First off, lets start with what you would need.


Fittings
(1)-4 tube nut/sleeve
(1)-5 tube nut/sleeve
(1)-4 to -6 union reducer
(1)-5 to -6 union reducer
(3)-6 Hose to Female
(1)-6 to M12x1.25 male adapter
(2) 18" -6 Steel Braided/Nylon hoes
(1)-6 Fuel Filter
(1)-6 90 degree female to female


Tools
Tube bender
Tube cutter
37 degree flare tool

Converting Fuel feed to AN:

1.Cut oem feed as low as you can. Make sure you have enough room to get your flare tool in there. After it is cut, slip on the -5 AN tube nut then sleeve. Flare the line and make sure the the tube sleeve and flare mate nicely. After you have converted your line to -5, then you can attach the -5 to -6 union reducer.

2.Cut oem return as low as you can. Make sure you have enough room to get your flare tool in there. After it is cut, slip on the -4 AN tube nut then sleeve. Flare the line and make sure the tube sleeve and flare mate nicely. Most people just use a hose clamp and -6 steel braided but to each his own. After you have converted your line to -4, then you can attach the -4 to -6 union reducer.

3.Attach the -6 hose female adapter to the -6 steel braided/nylon hose, and then to the -6 male on the return. Cut the hose to your desired length and attach it to your FPR. If you are using a stock FPR then you will need to use a hose clamp or an AN'ish 3/8ths spectre hose clamp.

4.Attach the -6 hose female adapter to the -6 steel braided/nylon hose, and then to the -6 male on the feed. Route the hose however you see fit and then cut at desired length. Attach another -6 hose female adapter. This end will go to your -6 male fuel filter.

5.Once you have your filter hooked up, attach the 90 degree adapter to the other end. The other end of the 90 degree adapter will go to the fuel rail.

6.Attach the -6 to M12x1.25 to the fuel rail. Make sure to use a crush washer to prevent leakage. Attach the 90 degree to the -6 on the fuel filter and your done!

Evo is 3 times the car the STI is. Regardless of wheel clearance. STI is nicer inside the cabin, but aside from that the Evo wins everywhere.
