hello all,

i need to do some maintenance work on my rig, and i think that "by way of" i will update my water coold system, so i have 2 quastion.

1. is it worth to update the tubing to Tygon (it mast be 3/8in ID 1/2in OD) ? if yes, which one ?

2. is there any update kit for the MCP655, that will increase the pump performance (L/H) ?
i think on the EK X-TOP V2.

take into consideration that i will replase the tubing anyway, so it will be what you recommending or ClearFlex Tubing (what i have now).

thanks ahead,

Take a look at the Feser colored tubing. t's good stuff.

For your MCP655 look at the DetroitAC pump top. It is the only one that markedly improves performance, and lets you utilize the stock mounting bracket, something none of the other tops allow you to do.
