I am still using my original lines which seemed to have more issues than the updated ones with zero issues.
Thanks for the PM reply and the fast response. =)

And thank you for the customer support offered.

Default Re: E46 Custom Heavy Duty High Pressure Power Steering Lines

issues were taken care of, and Dr. Mean One was the first customer that the line actually blew. It honestly doesn't make any sense with the ratings of these lines vs the pressure in the system but maybe different fluid does make a difference. I can tell you and as you can see, many people have zero issues with these lines. i have had mine on for 4 years and put 10k miles on them with no issues as well.

i have a few sets left that i will let go cheap so PM if you are interested. OEM sets fail often so there really isn't that much more of a risk going with these and the benefits could outweigh the risk.

A new product sometimes has a few bugs to work out. I wouldn’t sweat it. The fact that you’re still under development and you take care of your customers the way you do you says a lot. I’ve had mine on my car now for two years. It’s a dedicated track car and has probably seen about 3000 miles on track alone. Haven’t had any issues whatsoever.

So, i was discussing some of the issues people were having with a good friend of mine and he mentioned that he doubts people are actually using AN wrenches. One might not understand the absolute need to install these using AN wrenches.. The fittings are aluminum. When tightening and torquing aluminum fittings using standard steel wrenches, the metal can warp because its MUCH softer. You might not even be able to tell its warped but since most of the leaks are coming from that area.. i would be one to guess that AN wrenches were not used.

I hope this thought might spark any of you who installed it, and know that AN wrenches were not used.. let me know.

Any chance you can put what size tools to buy? I'm very interested in this.

Would this work?

tongii, good find. That will work. As long as it is a AN wrench. i believe its a 6AN you need but an adjustable AN would work.

Many thanks to everyone who posted about these lines!
I bought these in February 2017 but never installed them as getting to the reservoir on my supercharged S3 is a major PITA. I recently sent the blower to Vortec to be inspected as a PM and decided to install the lines last night.
Because the lines are more flexible than stock, I wasn't comfortable with my install so I went back to this thread to see what others had done to support the lines along their entire length.
I am SO glad I came back to this thread. I will be ordering stock lines and these will be removed today. Never had fluid in them.
WRX2BIMA - I feel for you and commend your efforts to improve our cars. Many years ago, I made over 100 transmission braces for S50/S52 swaps into e30s. I always worried that one of my welds would fail or a "customer" would be unhappy with my work (like you, I wasn't doing this as a business). Thank you for trying and it seems many buyers are completely happy with your product.
