Just remember you can go to any parts store and get hoses and clamps.more then likely other racers will have a hose or clamps as well.the an fittings are nice but over tighten them and you may have a problem.problem being is do you have a spair. Sad

I put a AN fitting on my top hose this year going into a rubber hose at the radiator. If I ever have to replace my radiator I will go to all AN lines. I like them alot better myself.

The AN Stuff is better IMO But it is alot more expensive.

on the flip side the regular stuff lasts for years and is use on all OEM stuff.... So....... IMO Nothing but some safety to be gained and the AN stuff does look cool.

2 -10's going in and one -12 coming out, the fitting on top of the radiator is a -10 with a -10 to -12 adapter. I also use the smaller 20gpm pump.
