I have both those fittings and was thinking the same as you. Maybe someone with more experience on builds can clue us in. Would a bushing or a nipple be the best choice when weight is a concern?

Is your HPT regulator brass? I was thinking that a 1/4x1/8 bushing would be better since you have brass on brass then have the SS post body on the bushing.

Darkb - You got a pic of your build? I want to see this down stream post body you speak of.
