Hey, i asked how to do this a few months ago, and noone knew how to. i just looked at it again, and figured that you can. I serched these forums and found noone still didnt know how. Insert an allen wrench (i think i used 1/8 or 3/16 into the macroline fitting and unscrew. i found this strange as i email CP and they said you can remove it.

Please tell me if everyone anredy knows this.

Yes you can remove it but you can only replace it with another straight fitting. The 90* fitting wont fit.

Would it be possible to put a straight SS fitting in there? to use as like an extension? I haven't ever looked at it.

that may work but I'd think you'd have to dremel off the points that make the "nut" to get it to go into the mounting port...then, where the extension joins the line, LockTite the **** out of it so it didn't separate when removing the line

that sux. 90* fitting are better cuz they use less macro line and they look cooler.

If you want a 90* on your CP reg get the shorty reg. You can use what ever fitting you like on it.

the thing about the shorty is that its really small (i use it to hold, lol.) and just doesnt look as cool as the long one. and you cant mount a guage.but it does cost less.

is there a difference in performance?

I think you are misunderstanding what I said.
What I said has NOTHING to do with modding any reg...I proposed modding the FITTING that goes INTO the reg...
What timmyshoot said was to get a straight fitting and add it to the 90* so it goes into the reg. I said to dremel the "nut" portion of the STRAIGHT FITTING so that it goes into the reg's port with ease. I also said to locktite the **** out of the joint between the 90* fitting and the straight fitting...NOT the straight fitting into the reg.

Locktite the straight and 90* fittings together and use teflon tape on the straight fitting that goes into the reg....

i read That^. just to let you know.


that seems like a good idea, but would cost alot for its purpose
