    Good call, since you will be taking apart the fitting it's a good time to cut the hose length you see better suited.

    I called Strat back in the day about their hose/fitting choice and their response was bewilderment and that they never heard anyone call/email about it. I sent them a picture of my finished line that I posted above and never heard back, LOL.

    @V_2 since your getting a new fitting, are you considering getting a straight fitting instead of a 90 degree? IIRC, one reason I went straight is to get the hose away from the fan and any potential of contact if in a front end collision. With the 90 I found the hose more in the vicinity of the fan than with a straight fitting and better fuel flow characteristics going straight.

    Thanks for the heads up...I'll see how clearance would be affected with a straight vs elbow connector. The elbow does a pretty good job avoiding the fan in my bay without a symposer or stock airbox to worry about. However, I'm sure a straight fitting will be a lot cheaper.
