I now have two different compression fittings. I have tested the 316 Stainless Steel Swagelok fitting on the left and it works very well. This is the best IMO. I'm still trying to work out why the BSPP (British Standard Pipe Parallel) is the same thread as the 1/8" NPT Any thread gurus here that can shed some light on this. The Swagelok is a lot more heavy duty compared to the other one from Howerton Engineering (located in CA). Both are around the $10 mark.
Now I just need to order a straight fitting from Swagelok in a BSPP with an O-ring and test that as the NPT threaded one has no O-ring and the thread is a little too long.

Yes they do come in male and female. Why female? I'm still yet to test the BSPP fitting.

Knock yourself out mate. Here's the link.

http://www.swagelok.com/products/fit...-adapters.aspx

I can just picture your face once you click the link and choose a style of fitting and it gives you 28490437856 options of threads/sizes. "ah....ah....ah...someone HELP...PLEASE"!!!

And no you haven't told me what a great bloke I am since I mis-diagnosed your car with a broken driveshaft.

YES!!! I hit 15.5psi on it with perfect timing. The Open Loop Mapping adjusts to your fuel quality/octane.

You shouldn't run it straight. Run a 50/50 mix with 98. I ran a 60/40 mix (mostly E85) and I got Fuel Mixtures Codes.

Need your expenses in the other thread. I guess it would take you about a week to work it out unless you have a nifty spreadsheet all prepared listing all your 584666745757 mods.

Wanting to do the JB4 15ohm mod before heading to WSID on Sunday but cant find 620ohm 1/8 watt 5% anywhere - could only find 620ohm 1/2 watt at Jaycar but Terry told me that will probably be to big.

Anyone know where to get this type of thing easily?

I used a 1/4 watt 620 from Jaycar Steve. The 1/2 watt could be a touch too heavy for the G4 board.
