Has anyone used Summit brand Twist Tite Hose? I am looking to attach this to the fuel rail barbs and run a remote regulator. According to Summits tech line its basically the same principle as the Aerquip socketless hose. They do however recommend you don't mix-match hose ends and hose between brands for tolerance differences.

Summit designed that line for thier own brand of fittings, just like Aeroquip did. The tolerances aren't astronomically different, hence why the Aeroquip socketless hose works on the factory SC rail.

That line would be plenty sufficient.

I ran across quite a few other forums and they have mismatched without any issues. Aeroquip has very limited selection of -4 socketless fittings to go on the Aeroquip regulator.

I also ran across another brand Fragola, that offers a socketless. They encase their hose in a nylon braid for a 350 psi pressure rating. thier Push Lite 8000 Series.

Thinking of doing another one of those fuel rail rebuild kit buys as well? Might be interested if so.

I didn't think about that. I could post a Group Purchase and see who is interested.

I did not get the Summit hose as it is not NHRA approved. I went with the Fragola hose and fittings, as the 8000 series is NHRA approved. I'll post some pics when I get it installed.
