HPCO Switch - NLA

TRB on Mon April 06, 2009 2:43 PM User is offlineView users profile

As soon as our stock on the HPCO Kits are gone we will no longer be able to supply them. Even though they are required by the EPA for vehicles when converting if no already equipped. I can't find a supplier offering the T fitting anymore. So while the EPA mandates it they failed to mandate a supplier!

Always had the problem in manufacturing, if you can't find it, have to make it. You don't want to make it here, just draw it up and have it made in China.

There are other options but required in in-line fitting. Just saying the screw on the service port T option will no longer be an option unless I can find a supplier.

Center tube and the tee look like easy to make automatic screw machine parts, wouldn't be that expensive, and looks like the tee is brazed to the center tube. But those formed end bells are a problem requiring progressive dies to form, those dies would be expensive with the end trimming and all that. Would have to sell a bunch of those to pay for the tooling. Have to admit to not seeing anything like that before, looks like more fittings are required to add it to an existing system that never had a HPCO switch before. You do have the adapters with provisions for that switch. Is it really that popular?
