the cis-e uses a banjo type fitting, where the e3 uses a screw in type, kind
of like the connection for your cable box, only for plumbing, unless... oh
do i feel sheepish, i would bet the thread in the distributor for the screw
in the cis-e banjo fitting is the same as in the cis-e3 fuel lines that
would mean all i need it the cold start line since it goes to a different
spot on the distributor. Maybe one of you fortunate multi platform car
owners could tell me...
