Default Lower radiator house reroute

Wondering if I can just have a hose going directly from waterpump to the lower radiator outlet bypassing the metal pipe?

With my new intercooler setup it would make it so much easier.

Yes. I used an NB hose back on my turbo NA. Direct fit, and it's a 1 hose solution.

Here's what I use:






This used to be what FM used for their early FMI FMII kits, but now have gone to a molded silicone hose.
