Im gonna be doing my first hardlines setup and was wondering if 3/8 .32 stainless steel will be strong enough to withstand the pressure of a simple 2 pump hydraulic setup just being used to fbss and dogleg. will be just prox blocks, chrome saco motors, and #10 heads, delta dumps. So I doubt I'll be sending out too much psi. Thanks.

this MAY help......... most say .035 in stainles is ok for returns only. i have serched all hardline threads on this site and i see people pushing .049 and up for pressure.
you didint list what volts your gonna run to your motors.

Im only doing 24v to each pump.  sorry about that.  Like i said, this car isnt going to be for hopping, just fbss and dogleg (its fwd).
are you sure its .32??


anyways i had a setup for front, back at 24v to each pump and i had no problem...and i had both pressure and returns in 3/8 .035.....I just never did any dogleg :)
