I use the Fittings Greg posted. Generally I always plumb with a fitting to a male -AN and use a female hose fitting. Why would you want the hose to be a permanent part of the fitting? Sound like a PITA to work on and the fitting you are looking at is as expensive as doing it in a more traditional fitting/hose end arrangement.

I thought you were describing what Greg is talking about that is what I used. Either one should work though.

I use the fittings that Greg mentioned on my heads except for the rear driver's side head. My up-pipes hit and would've required serious denting to get to clear. This was also the case on my buddy's truck too. I'm having a set of custom up-pipes made that will clear it because I the banjo fitting I have in there right now is leaking. I absolutely HATE banjo fittings.
