If you’ve got a race engine with any form of fluids pumping through or to it (and unless your race car is electric, we’re talking to you) then fluid fittings are not only an important component you can’t do without, but an integral part of the overall function and reliability of the complete system that is a high performance engine.
Jiffy-Tite, one of the leading manufacturers of Quick Connect Fluid Fittings, offers fittings for most fuel, oil, and water systems for virtually any race or street application, with a variety of thread styles, including AN, NPT, O-Ring, Boss (ORB) Seal, along with reusable hose ends, push-to-lock, and regular hose barbs.
Jiffy-Tite’s Quick Connect Fittings have gathered quite the following in the drag racing world, and though they may be a rather inconspicuous part under the hood, rest assured that some of the most feared names in the sport use Jiffy-Tite products religiously.
Who are those racers you ask?
Steve Furr, a three-time IHRA sportsman world champion and also an NHRA competitor, uses Jiffy-Tite Quick Connects on the transmission on his race cars.
Also, fellow IHRA champion (16 times between the NHRA and IHRA) Anthony Bertozzi uses Jiffy-Tite on his race cars for their reliability — an important aspect when you drag race for a living.
“In this sport, it’s hard enough to win, the last thing you need is to get up on the starting line and have a leaky fitting and get kicked off. It can cost you a ton of money,” says Bertozzi.
Sportsman racing standout Arnie Martel, who just scored a win in Competition Eliminator in Englishtown two weeks ago, also utilizes Quick Connects on his fleet of race cars that includes a beautiful new Super Stock ’12 Camaro.
