I went to a specialist shop that does all the braiding and was basically out of options and had to get my old line repaired and re welded.

I bought this kit:

Haven't had any dramas with it so far, the line is fairly long but doesn't really bother me.

If you want to run braided hose straight off the block without a banjo fitting, i'd assume you would get an speedflow NPT adaptor, possibly with an o-ring. That way you would have your AN-3 or 4 poking off the block ready for speedflow.

I ended up splitting that top piece, which is is what I thought you meant the whole piece, like adaptor for the bit that sits on the turbo.
