Would like opinions from people that have actually used Rodney's or the Fierostore's metal vacuum lines. Which do you think are the best?

Thanks ahead of time for your input.

There will be very few of us who have used both. I have Rodney's SS set and am very happy with them. The EGR valve line needs some serious re-bending.

Thanks Gall757 for great pic and info, yes, just looking for input on either or, and any issues like you had.

Hoping for someone that has used both over the years, or someone that chose one set over the other for specific reason(s)

From doing research here, I'm leaning toward Rodney's

I had Rodney's stainless lines. The big PCV line was too long, I contacted him and he sent me another which was the correct length. Kudos to him for good service.

I can see in the picture Gall757 provided that it appears that the 88 exhaust system has the EGR farther away from the engine. I used a 87 2.8 and the 87 2.8 exhaust to mock up these vac lines many years ago. I think what I can probably do is supply a short piece of the small (4 mm) stainless steel vac line (maybe about an inch long) and a short length of rubber hose for those with the 88. Added on to the end of the EGR line it would make the 90 degree nipple appear to be longer.

And there ya go! Buy from a real person, willing to adjust things or buy from some corporation who has probably never been to PFF. (Or I could be wrong about the Fiero Store. I've never personally had any issues with them.)

For what it's worth, my rule of thumb is to always check Rodney's site first and see if he has what I need. If he doesn't, then I'll go to the Fiero Store. I've always been satisfied with both of them!

Well the above confirms what I have always thought. I have purchased several items from Rodney and have always been pleased!

Thanks for the input everyone!

+1 for Rodney's. Installed them on my 88GT and I too had to bend the EGR line a little... The EGR is one long line. If memory serves, I had to trim a little off the EGR line because it was too long. Better too long than short.

I updated my web page and now include extra short stainless steel tube piece and rubber hose to extend the EGR line:

If anyone that has bought my vacuum line kit needs this extension kit let me know and I'll send you one N/C.
