Tubing and fitting ?'s

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just picked up a xspc kit and all the fittings are 1/2" and the tubing is 7/16 id. I have some left over 1/2" id tygon from a friend that finished his loop. Would it be okay with the supplied black plastic hose clamps from the xspc kit? Would you recommend staying with the 7/16" id hose?


Thank you,

It doesnt really matter ^_^ the hose clamps will work with the other set of tubes you have, and it doesnt matter if you use a clamp or not, I just got my kit 2-3 weeks ago, i used clamps cuz im paranoid and all that, but lately, when redoing my loop, i left the clamps off and it looks better ^_^ and still no leaks..


not sure if i answered your question right cuz i partly didnt understood your question ^_^ sowwy

Okay thank you, I have been reading flow rate and such going from 7/16 to 1/2 doesnt seem to matter all that much. I might stick with the stock tubing that came with the kit

Stick with the 7/16", has a tighter fit over the 1/2"
