Make sure you use nothing but 3/8" fittings and tubing or 1/2" fittings and tubing. As long as all of your fittings are same O/D, and your tubing is the proper size for your fittings, you're fine.

I would suggest looking at good quality crush fittings to reduce the risk of leaks. Out of curiosity, why are you doing a completely custom build?

That's an excessive amount of $ when you can buy a good kit (pump/res combo and good dual fan rad) for ~300$.

its not for me...im just helping a friend..and he has a budget of about $900 and he wants to do it all custom, so thats just what he wants lol...unlike me he has some money to spend

and ok i thought the parts had fittings already on them that all had to match up...do u recommend 1/2 or 3/8? just didnt know if one gave better results cuz i know that with the bigger tubing more water goes through, but with smaller it pumps faster so just wasnt sure
