    Default Boost Gauge - Vacuum line & Tee Fitting

    So I have a GT Boost Gauge coming in the next few days to install, and I was looking for a vacuum tee fitting, and all I'm finding are those little plastic/nylon fittings. Are those things really going to hold under pressure? They look pretty pathetic for handling 20psi or so. Anyone know where to get decent line/tee fittings?

    Most vacuum hose T fittings are plastic. If you really want a metal one, you could always try a fuel T fitting. Something like:

    or you could go to an aquarium store and get the brass t fittings for air line hose.

    Mine is capable of holding 150psi at 250 degrees F. It's just polyuerethane air line that I use on some of the machines at work.

    I used to work at a ace hardware store, and I know they had brass hose fittings for gas lines and such.

    Dougs seems like a beast. Too bad your lines would blow right off the fitting.
