Specs for DIY mods?

anyone have the specs for a HPX line, 7.3 to 6.0 IC boot sizes, size of the intake. I can go to a family members business to get all this stuff either from their stock, or wi;ll just make what i need. I just have to be able to walk in and give them a parts list. I just dont have the time to do the research tonight and i will be near his shop first thing in the AM. so any help on throwing together a quickparts list together would be great thanks.

This is how Duster mentioned to build mine.

#5 o-ring boss to -6jic male male,,,
then -6jic female to -6jic male 45degree.. then a hose about 10in total with female -6jic fittings on both ends...

I used the #5 o-ring to pipe. Then pipe to 45° 6 jic on both heads. I used Parker 3000 psi tough coat hose. I can tell you if your making your own hose the length is very sensative. I made 3 hoses before I had a length that would work but couldn't tell you exactly what the lengthe was. Once is't done an intalled..... your engine will love you.

I think you'd be better off spending the $40-50 on a hard HPX line vs making your own...

True, unless you get everything as "samples" and it ends up costing you $0 to make.
