My Ride: M3 HPF Stage 3
I bought one of these for my build. it is an impressive unit..massive! ..and well built.

Chris, Does anyone make after market braided oil lines for our cars. I have had low mileage hoses spring some pretty bad leaks. I expect this trend to continue. I would rather invest in something much superior so I dont spray oil all over my engine bay every time one fails.

I have never seen any for sale. They must be available?

I am not sure if I can even have some custom made. Are the fitting PROPRIETARY or are they readily available for a build? Aeroquip maybe.

I have all aftermarket brake and oil lines on my Honda Blackbird XX and they look and work great. Now I want something similar for the M3.
.

How many of you have had leakers? Is it hit and miss? I have been told its quite common and a problem for many BMW owners.
I dont like the OEM hose construction. It is a very weak design.

Not trying to jack the thread. It falls under connecting this engineering marvel (the HPF oil cooler) using sub standard OEM lines. I/we need much better connectors/oil and fluid lines.

Unfortunately it is different.. After we get some more HPF Z4M's pumped out of the shop we will see what we can do.

The few we have tried have the intercooler piping preventing the oil coolers larger core from being installed. Email me some pics if you can and I will see if you are in the same boat.

Can't wait for it to get here! Just hit a 104 today here in DC and with Autox coming up the last thing I want is my engine calling it quits.

Do you know of any braided oil lines as well? Rather do it once and right.

Thanks again!

I think this will fit, but just to confirm, any known issue in fitment with AA gen 3/level 2 setup? This is their older setup that uses the Rotrex blower.

Anything i should ask my installer to be sure the fitment will go smoothly?

Thanks!

Damn that's HOT If ANYONE is doing Road Racing or AutoX, this is a must buy. The factory lines work just fine. You won't need braided ones.

The only fitment issues was with the VF Stage 2 supercharger kit that had the air/water intercooler located in that space. I don't believe any of the AA kits have air/water intercoolers. The install is very straight forward and the kit comes with instructions.

I can't wait for my oil cooler and fan clutch. I'll finally be able to use my AC without the needle venturing to the red zone.

Also excited for something else

Using AC all summer on those hot days without worrying about engine and oil temps is a wonderful thing.

Now what else are you excited about???

Chris.
