Default Gauging interest-Rad hose relocate

I recently did this on my car and really cleared up lots of room. I was wondering if anyone else would like this option without having to DIY. This still retains the heater. I used a regular coolant hose (about 1' long) but didnt realize that it was right in the path of my intercooler pipe. Instead i used a flex hose.

60$ shipped with a 20$ core charge (that way you have no down time).

Thoughts?

Power steering may work. Not AC compatible



Thought... Opinions?

I think it's too easy for people to just flip it around, which is also prettier. Them again i have a strong diy attitude. Put a wire wheel to it before you post pictures too.

flipping it may be easier and prettier, but you'll lose the heater option. Or spend more time/money to make that heater hose work when flipped...

I've say it before, you can flip it around and cut the hard pipe, then clamp the hardpipe in place. run a length of heater hose from the copper return fitting back round the front to the cut hardline...

Let me clarify. Once I receive your core, you will be refunded 20 dollars. So total price in 40$. If anyone wants more pictures let me know.
