Hpx specs? Need fitting & thread info

My buddy owns a hose/hydraulics shop and can make me the hpx crossover line. I've looked and looked but can't find the specs for the fitting and the threads it requires. Anybody know the type of fitting and threads?

you can always take one of the bolts out of the heads and bring it too him. going to let air in the system but it will do that when you add the hpx anyway.

I'm pretty sure it's a -5 ORB. Like blue said, pull a plug and measure it. Might as well order up or find some new -905 size Viton O-rings to install with it. They should be 90 durometer, which a -905 size technically should be.

Thanks fellas. I wasn't at home where I could get to the truck and I was trying to get the line made while I was out of town and while my buddy's shop was slow today but I got the info a little late. I'll check it out when I get home. Thanks for the input!

Yep. -5 ORB. Easiest and best fit is to use a -5orb to 3/8 JIC 45* elbow. Fits perfect. I have a shop too and have about 5 sitting on the shelf FWIW.

Ok thanks! Well sometimes this "buddy" charges a little more than I think he should for a buddy, how much would you send a hose to me for? Located in the Dallas area

You can do what you want cause it's your truck...but when I put mine on I really didn't notice a difference, not really worth it in my opinion.

Really? I like the idea of it, I won't go out of my way to install it, I'll install it next time I get in that area for turbo work or somethin.

I mean it maybe quieted it down a little bit. But it's not hurting anything so I'm gonna leave it on. People will say that it is just an installed leak because the crush sleeves on the fittings will fail and it will leak oil like no tomorrow. And it is kind of a pain in the *** to install if you don't remove the intake y, which I didn't.

These are the ones I make. You dont have to remove the intake Y either. Just remove the inlet tube between the turbo an CCV adapter/bracket. Very easy to install.
