So when i blew my TCI Converter and put in my Vigilante i realized my lines wear messed up and wouldnt stay in so cut them and ran about a foot and a half of rubber from the tranny to the hard lines. well the pressure side has blown out twice within 450 miles. And i have Airline hose on it as a temp fix so i could get it home. I want to go steel braided but do i have to use AN Fittings or can i clamp steel braided hose? If i must use AN what do i need, Im running my lines through the Radiator and a B&M Cooler. I need my car functional and relible by the 15 for cruise in.

Your going to have to pick up some An fittings and some line, as far as what size im not sure.
If you try clamping on the braided line you will still have the same issue.

I have my braided hoses clamped to my B&M 24K cooler for over 6 years, and have not had any issues with leakage or the hose coming loose from the cooler.
