Has anyone thought about doing hardlines and be done with it? I plan on going all hardlines soon to avoid leaks, permeation, and what not. But has anyone here done it already? Please chime in.
We were referring to two different sources. Only suction in the intake pipe, which increases dramatically when under boost. Too strong of a source without running thru the charcoal canister setup like factory.I agree with adding a check valve but it wouldn't pull gas under boost with out one, it will pressure the gas tank under boost
Read up on fuel permeation. Depending on the additives used in the fuel you buy, some fuels will permeate rubber much more easily and hence the smell along the line. I got my PTFE (Teflon) hoses from Orme brothers, fully crimped and everything. No smell anymore.
PTFE lines are teflon/plastic lined. They are E85 safe and designed to avoid letting vapors out. Use quality PTFE line with quality fittings and you will be fine.Bringing this back up. Need some recommendations on PTFE or Teflon braided line that doesn't smell like fuel AT ALL. Every inch of those rubber lines smells like gas, tired of it.
Looking to upgrade my braided rubber lines while I'm in there, and fittings since they may not match up, which sucks. I was on Summit's site, and it is not very intuitive finding the matching fittings, etc. I know they have them, but they make you work to find them.
