I recommend the lokar braided oil dipstick tube. Make it go where you want afterwords....however I did manage to reuse my dohc dipstick tube by installing the head and tube onto the block and the manifold afterwords, but that was on a stand. In car the factory tubes always fight me. It's worth the lokar price for personal convenience. I also like the look. I'm sure your going to enjoy the fruits of your labor when it's all done. What's the purpose on the braided powersteering line? Avoiding potential leaks? Trying to prolong the inevitable strut rod bushings?
