    3sx fuel loop review

    I picked one of these up with the recent sale. It is pretty good, but I was expecting a bit higher quality.

    The tubing seems a bit thin and I have my doubts about the flares holding up to repeated tightening and losening cyles over the years. I did not make them super tight because I was afraid of damaging them.

    Be careful installing these. Mine were full of burrs in the flares and when I wiped them out my paper towel was grey from tiny bits of aluminum. Clean them well before installing or you'll have aluminum in your injectors.

    On the other hand the fit was really good and it is clear they will flow better than stock.

    7/10 - They should've been de-burred and cleaned out of the box. After purchasing them I think I would prefer stainless steel for the additional strength.

    Overall experience was good as usual, shipment was very fast and I would order over again, just wanted to mention a few things to look out for.

    I had them install one on my car when it was their, they tried 3 of them before they found one that didn't leak out the flair ends. But they made it worth my hassle like they always do with problems

    mine worked fine with no leaks. im just a little bummed about how it doesnt clear my cxracing ic pipe but then again its not really 3sx's fault. i ended up just cutting a 1.5" piece of vacuum hose lengthwise to slip over it so that my cxracing ic pipe wouldnt ware through the fuel loop and start a fire in the engine bay. so far its worked fine.

    Thanks for the review on these, I have been looking at them, they are on sale again currently @ 3sx and look like a dress/up and function upgrade.

    move the pipe a little higher by pulling out of the turbo a bit more. mine clears just fine.

    Thanks for the review. I was close to getting one but I don't really like the colors. Nice to know about ths shavings and aluminum/SS deal.

    its worth picking this kit up just for the adaptors... extremely good deal on sell. i bought two even though i'm not using the loop part of it. i needed the adaptors and i got four for the price of two!

    I found them to be right on par with the OP's post. Would have preferred another color though...

    Help them, for they know not that which they do not know!

    I had the same issue with the first one a bought years ago. The aluminum tubing they use is thin and will leak if it is overtightened. I just ordered one just for the adapters as the price of the full kit is cheaper than just getting one adapter. I am going to be building a custom Hardline setup like the Oohnoo kit so I need the adapters. I'll have to order one more adapter to replace the old blue ones I have. I like the raw aluminum ones better than the blue ones.

    Truthfully any part should be cleaned before installing it. Just alone to clean off the shelf dust!
