I can only find a -10AN fitting to a -10AN barb or a 5/18" barb (-10AN has an O.D. of 5/8 anyway im pretty sure, so they are the same).

Im sure i can get the hose to fit over the end of a 5/8" barb, its only slightly larger.

So im going to get:
1. 3/8 NPT tap
2. 3/8 NPT to -10AN male
3. -10AN to 5/8" barb

sorry to bump old thread.

just confused with tap sizes at the moment.
ive been told to use 3/4" tap for coolant port and 1/2" for EGR.

this is what i find strange.
clubrsx said to use 3/8" tap for coolant port? but isnt 3/8" = 9.5mm
wouldn't 3/8" be too small for the coolant port?
wouldn't 1/2" be too small for the EGR port?

coolant port has smaller hole diameter (13.45mm)
EGR port has larger diameter (18.95mm)

http://www.ephatch.com/forum/showthr...-fitting-size&

http://forums.clubrsx.com/showthread...=644703&page=3

from google tap searches, it shows that i should be using:
coolant port (13.45mm) = 5/8-11 tap
EGR port (18.95mm) = 7/8-9 tap
http://brassmein.com/tech/taps.htm

if you can shed bit more info/clarification please.

thanks k20a.org

If you are using a 3/8" NPT you need a 9/16" tap.
