I've had a couple of o-ring failures at autox, so I decided to do a little further investigation into the problem. I noticed some difference between the stock P/S line vs. the Fragola AN adapter I was using.

I think the Fragola 14x1.5mm O-ring to 6AN Adapter was the culprit. I believe the hardline from the rack was bottoming out on the adapter so the o-ring isn't quite seating fully/correctly. I purchased 2 new adapters, one is an Earls and the other is a Russell.

Here is the stock line (notice the chamfered/tapered bore)

Here is the Fragola adapter (p/n 491970) (notice how there is no chamfer/taper to allow space for the hardline)

Here is the Russell adapter (p/n 640820)

Here is the Earl's adapter (p/n 9894DBHERL)

I believe either the Earl's or Russell adapter will work MUCH better than the Fragola, but I haven't test fit yet. The Russell looks like the closest to the stock line, so I'm leaning towards that one. I'm hoping to get it all back together by the autocross this weekend, so I will report back.
