 Just a heads up everybody- check out the latest issue of Hot Rod Magazine & learn why you need plumb your hot rod or race car with PTFE (Teflon) hoses.  The OEMs switched over to PTFE hoses almost 2 decades ago & this informative article by Marlan Davis tells you why.

SEMA 2010

October 27, 2010

The Future of Hose Assemblies Unveiled @ SEMA:

QD & AN Fittings for PTFE Hoses

 Make sure to stop by the TechAFX display (SEMA Booth #24791) to touch the future of performance hose assemblies. TechAFX, an aftermarket performance technology company focused on emerging market segments, will be showing their full line of OE-style Quick Disconnect (QD) fitting hose assemblies and home-assembly aluminum AN fittings for PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene…or Teflon) hoses.

QD Fitting Hose Assemblies

The TechAFX QD fitting hose assemblies are the result of a business partnership with StanPro, a full scale provider of OE-style QD fittings. TechAFX will be showing their fuel, evaporative and coolant hose assemblies with QD fittings and PTFE hose for late model vehicles to improve underhood appearance and drivetrain performance. These assemblies are designed and manufactured to exceed production vehicle specifications, install easily and provide excellent reliability.

PTFE Hose AN Fittings

In a world premiere, TechAFX is using SEMA 2010 to unveil their revolutionary AN fittings in -6, -8 and -10 sizes for PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene) braided steel hose. The black anodized TechAFX AN fittings have been designed in partnership with JDA to mate to large diameter, conductive Teflon hose: Teflon hose is impervious to gasoline, ethanol, methanol or just about any chemical.

The future of hose assemblies will include PTFE hose because it does not swell and crack prematurely like CPE rubber braided steel hoses do when exposed to today’s fuels. TechAFX AN fittings for PTFE hose install easily with simple hand tools, come in a full compliment of sizes and angles and are Made in the USA.

If you want to install hoses that will provide safe, durable and good looking service over the life of your vehicle, then TechAFX QD and AN fitting-equipped PTFE hoses are for you. Stop by the TechAFX booth #24791 or go to for more information.

2010-12 Camaro/ Corvette LS EVAP Hider Hose


TechAFX is proud to unveil our latest product, the EVAP Hider Hose for the 2010-11 and later V8-powered Chevrolet Camaro & LS2/LS3 Corvette.

Our EVAP Hider Hose relocates one of the more unsightly hoses under the hood of the LS3 and L99 V8s in the 5th-gen Camaros. The TechAFX Hider Hose replaces the production plastic hose connecting the EVAP solenoid with the intake manifold sits on top of the electronic throttle body.

The TechAFX EVAP Hider Hose is constructed with Teflon-lined, braided nylon hose and production-quality 90 degree GM quick-disconnect fittings.

TechAFX offers only the highest-quality, OE standard automotive hoses & components for aftermarket applications.  All TechAFX products utilize factory-spec hardware, which is rigorously tested to exceed industry standards for performance..

Made in USA.


2010-14 Camaro Fuel Line


Are you running a "Maggie" aftermarket blower on your LS V8-powered Camaro or G8? If you are, you need to install the TechAFX fuel line to avoid a fuel hose failure due to substandard manufacturing processes. TechAFX hoses look better, use the proper OEM connections with 360 [degree] crimped-on ends, & are tested to S.A.E. specs.   TechAFX hoses are built the way the factory builds these hoses!

Each TechAFX fuel hose is individually tested to 150 psi during the build process by StanPro (a worldwide provider of OE hoses) to insure it can withstand the extreme pressures these fuel lines are subject to during their usage. Try to do that with the hose assemblies that come with most aftermarket blower kits!

The TechAFX fuel lines install in minutes and will give you piece of mind while improving the underhood appearance of your blown LS-hot rod.

NOTE: this Hose also fits later model 5th Gen cars, as the facroty moved the connection on the RH shock tower.

TechAFX vs the Competition


Supercharger Fuel Hose Testing Results
TechAFX has just completely extensive testing our LS V8 supercharger fuel Hose vs the competition: here are the results. The TechAFX hose successfully completed the SAE J2045 testing (which is 8 times average fuel rail pressure, or 58 x 8 = 464 psi) and actually was run up over 3 times that level (completing a test to 1200 psi!). Unfortunately, the fuel hose from the leading supercharger company (we tested 5 hose assemblies) did not pass this SAE test. It consistently failed at arounf 360 psi--well below the industry standard. For OE quality and performance in aftermarket applications, choose TechAFX product.

Who Did What at the 2010 Holley LS Fest

We hitched a ride down to the Holley LS Fest In Bowling Green, KY @ Beech Bend Raceway Park. with Mark Stielow.  For those that may not know, Holley moved its corp offices out of Cali & south of America's Mason-Dixon Line.

The weather was crap, spectators were few, the cars were remarkable, & the racing was top-notch!   Here's a few interesting pics from the event:

Rain, Rain, go away...
