I see the number and source for the valve, am I overlooking the number and source for the fitting?

Same place as the Grainger valve, or the plumbing section of any Homeboy Depot or Blowes.

Seriously, you n00bs need to walk through Homeboy Depot sometime with your thinking caps on. There's all sorts of killer ---- there, I find it impossible to build a 10 second car without a good dozen trips through the place for miscellaneous this and that. Very little of what you are sold by the way of plumbing, hardware, or lines are anything intended for the automotive aftermarket or even anything automotive at all.

Before posting I had already went to home depot, lowes , autozone and a few other places around town. None have it with the 1/8" barb. I searched the internet for a while too, including grainger and mcmaster carr. Same thing, no 1/8" barb on a 1/4 female fitting.

If it's so easy give me a part number.

McMaster catalog, page 249, part number 5346K82, $12.75 for a pack of ten.

Grainger only has them in 1/4" barbed outlet - oh, well, just shove the hose up over it, it'll stretch, catalog page 1100, part number 6X412, $1.15 each.

"Brass fittings" or "brass barb" makes excellent Google search fodder, top five both times were Alibaba listings, for when you absolutely need to find who makes the $0.05 sweatshop labor chinese fittings found on all the hot SSAC MBC setups. Holy ----, baby jebus help us all if they don't have parts on the shelf and you have to get creative! Might as well buy prepackaged kits so we no longer have to be burdened by having to think, right?

Perusal and usage of this forum requires the user to be creative, adaptable, persistant, and somewhat intelligent. If you cannot acheive this then I politely request you delete your account and fly to turboD16.com - they are waiting for you with open arms, brother.

Thankyou for the part number. You're better at the internet than me.

So did I catch you on a bad day or are you always a ------- -------? Do you bash on all the noobs so that they dont want to come back? I guess I shouldn't question you, you're obviously more intelligent than I am.

Have a nice day, dick.

No, I'm pretty much like this all of the time. It seems to grow on people after a while and they love me for it. You know, down deep, that you want to love me, too.

I've been thinking about running a staged boost controller for awhile now, my idea was simpler, but with a bit less control. I figured get a few DSM BCS's and switch them on sequentially. With two BCS's, one with the restrictor removed, and 3 switches you can wire up 4 stages of boost control (base, lo, hi, lo+hi). I think they were worth 3psi stock, and 5-6 psi modified.

FYI...G2 integras have two solenoids mounted on the firewall that will do the same thing...I was getting ready to do a similar setup using those two solenoids and either Neptune or another EMS to activate the solenoids for gear based boost (via MPH).

I'll be posting pics soon, good job though

I guess I could do 6, 8 and 10 as my three stages of boost.
