  • Circuit Sports SS Turbo Lines

    Anybody else have any issues with these leaking? I have put them on several cars and have seen 3 leak intermittently. Just finished MikeyV's car and he called the day after taking it home with a water leak. It is coming out of the o-ring at the 90 swivel. They all leak this same place but usually stop after a while. This one hasn't so far.

    Am I the only one?

    I have only run the DIF lines in my cars.

    I just put in a set of Isis lines in a car I'm flipping but I haven't fired it up yet. Hopefully it seals....

      That's where all cheap fittings leak from - so it's not just Circuit Sports. Lots of the Chinese made hose ends do it.

      I'd complain and get a new one hose - or just replace the hose end.

        Just a heads up on the Isis lines, I had the circuit sports lines with no issues. After overheating on track the shop that refreshed the engine for me put the Isis line for the coolant to the back of the block one and it melted. I replaced it with a better SS line with an Earl's fitting and added a heat sleeve over it.

          It's an s14 water line setup (isis water neck with isis lines -- felt dirty buying it all but it's for a car I'm flipping.... ). Thanks for the heads up, hopefully it's fine. Firing this week *fingers crossed*.

            I'd just build my own. Might cost slightly more, but YOU can run them how you'd like...

              I had a new one made at a regular hose place today. It is silver and steel but it was only 30 bucks and there is no o-ring to leak. 6AN female, one end 90 and one end straight and 21", not that hard to do but the fittings in the turbo and block would not be available here. I expect them to be 14 mm, maybe 1.25 OR 1.5 thread to dash 6.

                And turbo fittings are both m14 x 1.5 mm. Pretty common size.

                  Welp, oil lines leaks right out of the gate.

                  I have the orig hardline so I'm going to put that back in.

                  Sigh.

                    Bummer... Use the line as a template for better fittings and build one. Pretty easy to assemble.

                      IMO - just make your own. It's cheaper than those chinese lines, and you don't have to have the headache of cheap arse Chinese hose ends.

                        I'll try the stock hardline since I'd like it done tonight.

                        This is a flip car -- not personal car. Care meter is slightly (a lot) lower

                          BTW - I've gotten really into premade teflon/stainless lines lately. They're suitable for 3000 PSI, are crimped so they can never separate, and they can be purchased in a variety of hose end configurations and lengths. It's sometimes even cheaper than making them yourself out of stainless steel braided hose.
