i had some hoses with SS braid ( not brians) and i had to replace the actual hose and i was able to reuse the AN fitting.
it seemed that the high temp from manifold and turbo cause the hose to weep or seep. i just replaced
the hose and all was fine. i only got a about 1 1/2 years out of the hose between the valve cover and turbo.

i just replaced them late last year. i also will be replacing the oil coolers as well this year with PTFE hoses..

No contact. It's hard to tell exactly where it's coming from within the fitting. I've delt with a random coolant smell when I start my car in the cold for the last three years. I was inspecting the steam and noticed my exhaust manifold and gasket were wet. When feeling the bottom of the fitting it's wet also. Once I've driven a few times in warmer weather it stops weeping.

I would be happy to replace the leaking fitting. There is an o-ring in the swivel part that is most likely the culprit and since it does it mostly when cold I would say thats the problem. It's not something that can be replaced so I can replace the fitting. What was the color?

Everything I use is Fragola which is pretty good quality stuff but there are situations when you get a defective fitting. If this was going on for 3 years now its probably a defective o-ring or it got pinched during factory assembly. Either way I stand behind my parts and I'll replace whatever is causing the issue.

It's titanium. I hadn't had a chance to look into it fully to verify no holes in the line. Have been daily driving the car for two weeks now without any signs of coolant. Suppose to cool off this weekend donate I can get it to do it then.

Hello everyone, I have been getting asked if I am still carrying the Steel Braided Lines and the answer is yes ;) I just ordered another batch of line and fittings so I have everything in stock and ready to go. The only thing I do not have at this time are the blue hose ends but I can special order them if that's what you wanted.
