HPO-X lines

Hey guys I was wondering who did this mod and what line you thought would be the best. I have seen them on ITP and stealth and was just curious about what fit better and what might work better the flex line or the SS hard line?

Thanks Eric

I have the one from ITP. I noticed no change in anything when I installed mine. I do like the idea behind it and would probably put one on my next truck too.

I have a hard line from Riffraff Performance, motor idles smoother and got just a touch quieter. He also offers a hose version. No complaints at all with mine, it's been installed a few months now.

Hard Line would probably be better, hoses can fail over time especially when its that close to the turbo. I made mine out of regular 1/4" Hydraulic hose though. No problems yet!

Hard line can fail too, I've heard of a few of them bursting but hose failures are much more common.

If I remember right my ITP kit in the instructions said to keep the plugs you remove in the glove box incase a failure happens. So I have the plugs in my glove box with a spare CPS

As do I, because w/o the plugs if your HPX blows you are ultra screwed.
