Quoting SleepinGVR4:

Really?... Thats interesting. I just had to buy a Russel fitting from summit racing. Only on the inside of the end with the female threads, it didn't have an inverted flare. It was just flat on the inside. So I just used an O-ring, not the most ideal thing but it doesn't leak.

So since you are selling one of these fittings that in fact does have the inverted flare on the female thread side everyone should get their fitting from you. Because summit doesn't sell one that does, or anywhere else for that matter.

On a side note for anyone wondering this fitting will also connect to your factory sending unit and allow you to connect braided line with a female hose end on it. Granted that its -6 AN.

That's unfortunately what I had to do too, but it hasn't caused any problems in over 4 years.

Good to know, thanks Jeff. At least now if it does leak I know where to get the correct fitting.

Just thought I'd post a picture of the fitting installed on my car & a -6 filter as well. The oem bracket will clamp back around my -6 filter with some rubber insulation. I had to tighten the crap out of the metric to -6 AN fitting for it to seal properly. The fitting is @ the inlet side of the filter.
