i would only put 3/8 tubing if it was free and not my rig lol
i'll take every extra psi and flow
3/8 is easier to setup

Think i will go 3/8 5/8 seeing how it does look like it, plus the 1/2 3/4 looks way too big.

I use 3/8" ID, 5/8" OD for its superior bend radius and dramatically better compression compatibility compared to larger tubing sizes. Also there is no performance difference. Anyone who STILL thinks there is a tangible PSI, flow, or performance difference between 3/8 and 1/2 needs to do some more research. I'm so sick of seeing this misconception thrown around like it's a fact.

The legend himself answered this question once and for all almost FIVE YEARS AGO. 1/2" tubing is unnecessary unless you REALLY like the look of huge tubes being in the way of everything. The impact of tubing sizes

Actually yes,Linus reccommendation seem to be more likely to work well for you :)
Just to inform you,PPL here in Hardware Canucks don't specially like threads that are being replied over and over by the author,(for moderators and admins) that is not to say that the community is bad,not at all,but when you reply at your own topic,basically PPL think your topic is being resolved and there's no need to reply :)
So when someone reply and you're hoping for more opinions and suggestions,don't reply until it's all resolved
