I didn’t ask Gordon about larger diameter.., my bad.

1. Mark and Gordon both indicated it was big enough.
2. I got really tight clearance everywhere and I can get tighter bends in my tubing.
3. Frankly, it looks better..,

BRAG: we won most outstanding engine bay at Detroit Autorama a couple years back.

ADVICE: if you run “hard” engine mounts, and if you run hard lines, no need for a flex hose in between.

BOTTOM LINE: You are fine.., just shut the hood and drive it like you stole it!
My stainless lines were a little bit of a chore too. This is from when I got the project started last year. I then ran the tubing from the starter tucking next to the pan as GM did forward up near the radiator. I used PTFE braided lines for the connections. I'm thinking with the trans cooler having -6 AN I should be good
