Check Summit's website. They have a lot more fittings online than in their catalog and may have it in steel.

Only 3600? Don't forget about pressure spikes.

Re: Aluminum AN fitting maximum pressures??

I'm curious, for those who love to overrun the ICP.....

Why stop at 36 or 3800??? Why not 3900? Why not 7800???

Curiosity.


Don't know about the fitting itself, but most Aeroquip aluminum reusable assemblies are rated to something like 1200psi. But that includes holding a hose.

Re: Aluminum AN fitting maximum pressures??

I'm curious as to why you refer to 3800 as "over running" ICP.

I have seen undeniable results by increasing ICP from 3100-3200 up to the 3600-3850 range.

I'll say it again like I always do, a tune has to work together to make power

I don't doubt that someone would just simply jack up ICP and say "it doesn't work" or that someone could try different variations of ICP tricks and find unfavorable results.

But believe me, when a tune works together, 3850 is the $hit

Re: Aluminum AN fitting maximum pressures??

But not 3900? Or 4100? What about 4500?

If it just keeps getting better and better.....

Why stop at 38?
