VC AN Fittings W Catch Can Setup...

I've really been thinking about redoing an extra VC I have and would really like to do the AN fittings on it and then do a sweet catch can setup off of that.

My question is how do I shop for these AN or NPT fittings? Can anyone explain or have a link or something that can get me pointed in the right direction?

Thanks

Re: VC AN Fittings W Catch Can Setup...

The problem isnt really WHERE to shop but HOW, I dont know how you read the desc. of the fittings. I mean obviously there in inches and but I dont know what a -8 looks like or how that size compares to -6 or what kind of fitting I need to use with the VC.

I live in MT so I dont have much resources to find out like going to a automotive place and grabbing a few of these and seeing what might work best. I have nothing to go off of first hand if you get what Im saying.

Most guys that do this have some an bungs welded to the vc, like these click

You will have to figure out on your own as far as buying them

You may not have much to go off of locally, but neither did I when I built my car. You have the internet, which is more powerful, IMO. Wikipedia AN fittings for a quick tutorial on them, then search DSM related boards to find what others have done.

The dash number is the inner diameter in eighths of an inch. Example,-8An is 8/16 ID which is 1/2" -6 An is 6/16 which is 3/8". Ans as far as outside the -8 AN takes a 7/8 wrench. anplumbing.com has tons of parts listed and is a good resource on what is available.
