So while I'm trying (it's still not off) to get my engine bay fuel filter off, I did something to the bottom banjo fitting because now it leaks.

So I'm just gonna replace it with AN fittings and use a steel braided line.

Using this guide

The very first step is a 5/16 to 6AN fitting. I'm not 100% certain what it means by that.

M12x1.25 to 6AN fitting: https://www.summitra...arts/vpe-16615/

1' ft PTFE hose with fittings: https://www.summitra...fra-60261212bl/

You need 2 washers for each banjo bolt.Put one on the bolt and slide it through banjo and put the other one on the bolt after.Both sides of banjo need to seal.

Hope this helps

I have that exact stock fuel line if you need a replacement.  

The hose that goes from hard line to bottom of fuel filter.  

PM me if you are interested.

It's alright guys I just wanna switch everything over to AN fittings.

The entire rest of the fuel system is steel braided (just not installed yet). I might as well make this section also that lol.

It's just the front Hardline to engine bay fuel filter that needs to be changed.

I modified my post with the fitting and hose I would use. Now I just don't know what fitting for 6AN to hardline.

So further research tells me that the Hardline on the fuel tank side is m14x1.5 INVERTED FLARE.

Can I assume the front is the same?

What does inverted flare mean anyways.

Edit:got the correct adapter. It is just the m14.5x1.5 inverted flare.

Also in addition to the above question, does anyone have any tips on removing the fuel line from the Hardline? Seems to be seized on there really farging well. Been trying to remove it for the last hour -_-.

Just blasting it with pb blaster and waiting at this point. Gave it one last douse and now I'm just gonna let it sit overnight.
