I need to know what i can use for heat resistant vacuum lines, i need to know because my wastegate has the connectors right next to the exhaust manifold and i think it will make typical lines burst, oil lines were suggested to me but this line will be withing milimeters of the manifold, are there any retailers for braided steel vacuum lines? the greddy kit i have was supposed to include those but they are shitheads and discontinued the braided lines which you see in this diagram here http://www.pbase.com/image/25321437
Do you know what "L" fittings are used with vacuum apps?

Thanks!

Theres no other way you can route it?
Well, put some heat wrap around the header and get those special fiberglass or whatever sleeves you can put over lines that go next to headers. Hmm, well i found one pic of it (its the orange sleeve going over the hose going down in the center). Not sure the exact name of it.

Nope, the wastegate nipple is right next to the manifold.

Thanks for the tip

What's that "tracer braid"? the very best thing you can do is get as much AIR space between the hose and the heat as you can. If it touches it WILL fry! I had cast turbo manifolds on a 5.0, creamic coated, that fried EVERYTHING I used on the plug wires including the special Nomex covers and Quartzite braid MSD sells. Even a little bit of space is MUCH better than no space and a wrap.

Harsh!

Ill see what i can do, i might be able to get more space if i get some L fittings... but what kind of fittings would fit on a "barbed" nipple
