A recent alternative to stainless braided line is Pro-Lite 350 fabric braided hose, offered by the Earl's division of Holley. Pro-Lite 350 is rated at 350-psi maximum operating pressure, which is less than traditional stainless hose, but more than enough for most automotive applications, and Pro-Lite offers some advantages over traditional stainless line. Racers are most interested in the weight savings it can provide-we're told a typical Hooters Cup car can shed around 30 pounds by switching the fuel, oil, and cooling lines to Pro-Lite. Pro-Lite can also withstand the same temperatures as stainless line, being rated from -40 degrees F to 300 degrees F.
