    I would run 3/4" lines wherever possible.

    I used 3/4" Goodyear hose and Aeroquip and Spectre fittings.

    Did you get Tim's front mount?

    If you got the Jabsco then go to Home Depot or Lowe's and get NPT to Hose barb fittings. Take your pump and test thread them in to be sure.

    The fittings for the Meziere you probably won't find locally. I had to order them for mine.

    Re: installing heat xchanger and pump tmrrw

    lucky for me I did manage to find them. there a few local performance shops that stock AN fittings, thank god. lol. we got it worked out, just took a few long drives and some creative processing. but they all agree it should work with no issues.

    I also purchased Tim's exchanger - it would be great if you could post a write up on removing the front end and the install.

    Re: installing heat xchanger and pump tmrrw

    heat xchanger made a HUGE difference!! beat cars that were putting 4ish cars on me after just installing the xchanger. the pump DOES NOT fit, DO NOT BUY THIS PUMP!!! but even without it, its a huge difference. here is quick rundown for you jb_v.

    open hood, remove screw pins that hold the engine covers on, remove the annoying pins that hold bumper on across the top of the support as well.
    turn wheel all the way one direction, remove the annoying pins that hold the FRONT portion of the inner wheel well on. once that is removed you will expose the nut by the side marker, remove that from both sides. remove the annoying pins from teh bottom of the bumper and its off. disconnect the fog lights, and the head light washer hose. that will leak out, we took a latex glove, cut the finger out and zip tied it to the nipple to stop the leaking out. you MUST remove the lower hood latch supports, the rest is fairly straight forward. wait until all bolts and connectors are installed before tighening one, the fit of mine wasnt exact and it had to be removed and had to bend some tabs to make it work. that should get you there Jb_V
    JB_V and JB_V like this.

    Awesome and thanks! I should be getting it later this week. I'll keep everyone posted given I'm giving nitrous a try.
