      They look very similar to the russell 640863..
      I was thinking of connecting one of them to the stock filter then run -6 for the feed.

      Well I have my new fuel lines hooked up at the manifold



      I purchased these fittings from Jegs

      They work on the factory lines that come into bay (in fact there so tight once there on and click there is no way to remove them


      But they will not work at all on the lines in back by rear passenger side wheel where the lines come down where fuel filter used to be... And when I say they will not work I messed with it for a couple hours trying to force it on, I have bruised palms from doing it... I repeat they will not work, cant force it on enough to make it click



      Gonna order one of these and see if they will work from Jegs here is the PDF on how they work
      http://www.jegs.com/InstallationInst...799-641300.pdf




      I have some intercooler piping coming in tomorrow so I can start fabbing up the new lines to connect to IM

      I was planning on the same (fuel pump location) setup...could you PM the parts you used to put the walbro there and the new fuel filter you put in the bay? Much appreciated.

      I'll just post the info here so others might benefit from it, I used those fittings that Arnold made me to put pump where factory fuel filter was located in my 1st post, now I'm buying this to hook on outlet of Walbro pump so that I can hook AN lines to it part #Item# 799-670480 6AN to 10mmx1 fitting


      Fuel filter is this part # 555-150000



      I needed to order 2 8AN to 6AN reducer fittings for my lines to connect to fuel filter
      555-110222


      Also the bracket for the new filter 555-15003



      Hope this helps Any more questions you might have post them up

      Hi Brad,

      great write up so far, and a great deal of detail/cleanliness in your work. You've given me some good ideas and some questions. I didn't even know those parts existed for the 02j, so I may be picking those up in the future to try and "protect" her for as long as possible.

      Hopefully I can see this car at some point this summer. With or without my jetta. Where is your filler for the rad system? I want to do something similar to your upper rad hose setup there. I already have the alum. housing on the side of the head too, it looks like to tapped it?

      ps- the AEB looks so good without the solenoid mount on the side - much cleaner!

      -Dev

      Hey Devin, I bought my whole AN setup from Velocity196, so what you see is how I got it, not sure if he had anything special done to it...

      As far as my filler neck I was going to get a 16AN filler for it but no matter how I tried to route it, it just wouldn't work for me... The SEM is so damn big and the AN adapters on the radiator wouldn't allow for a descent run with where I'm routing the intercooler piping...

      I bought an ECS carbon fiber strut brace new from a member on here, I think I'm going to chop it up and try to have a piece of aluminum in place of the carbon fiber and have someone tig weld my existing filler neck to it along with a couple 6AN males... then I'll take the 6AN line from the turbo return line and go up to a 6AN fitting that will be on it, and take the other male and go 6AN to the stainless line going into block by water pump.... We will see if it works out or not...

      You have the same mindset as me as far as the 02J, just trying to keep it together as I already have a bunch of $ into it with the Peloquin LSD and the Clutchmaster FX400... Don't want to go 02M

      I would also like to thank you for answering questions I have had during my wiretuck and other random questions I've had

      Things do get tight in that area when you run a drivers side TB setup like us. Its good to know though, because an SEM is prob in my future. Ill be sure to build my setup being conscious of the size for when that day comes.

      hope the strut bar - res works out for you I always wanted to block off a section of the rain tray with an alum cube and mount bulkheads on the firewall for a res.

      Yeah, I'm in the same boat. with the LSD, clutch, and other expenses thrown into that trans, id rather preserve it than spend all that money again on an 02m. Plus, I love the ratios with the 3076. It makes for great highway pulls. 2nd is prob my favorite gear.

      That is a heck of a good idea there, than I wouldn't need my Moroso overflow catch can thing... The cube would be the same thing as the factory coolant ball, just use the moroso cap I have on it and keep everything in the rain tray... Now you have me thinkin It would work great for me as I don't have my ECU or anything up there in the center anyway

      yep, and it would be close to the heater core line ports too, so it could tee in nicely to one of those hoses and be a lot less routing. it would ALSO be the highest point in the system, good for filling. It would essentially operate just like the moroso expansion setup ( im picturing tattoo24v's canteen looking thing) but just a custom version of it.

      I just ran out of time as far as fab work went and abandoned the idea. you could have a cool little cap that protrudes from the plastic rain tray shroud as well, fill her up with the hood closed.

      Let me know how that other fitting works. I have the same issue with that jegs fitting as you did last week too. It is on there as good as I could get it but no click what so ever so I don't feel comfortable with it.

      Build looks great to got alot of what I want to do going on.

      Yep it got shipped today so I'll let everyone know how it works... If it didn't click I wouldn't feel safe using it either, thats all you need is to be spraying gas out that line while driving

      Looks like you had to grid a little material off the brace for the fork to clear. Am I seeing that right?

      Also didn't know these items existed

      edit: with a closer look at the part on their site, it now looks like the brace comes already shaped correctly to clear. another

      please note that some bellhousing are not the same, and that our brace needs a bit of trimming, nothing major, the important thing is that it sits flush and does not bind. Good luck rest of the way
