Yeah I know, I have one. Actually I think it was O'Reilly's and $5.
The ricer in me wants the MS cap, which is like $30 + $70 shipping

I'm pretty sure my neighbors all hate me. The neighborhood's like this: Lexus, Lexus, MB, Cadillac, Vette, S2000, Vette, BMW, Vette, busted gray miata w/blue hood and white hardtop, Vette, Lexus, BMW. Also, I think everyone with a Vette also has a big *** diesel truck too.

For the cost of Samco hoses, you could probably switch over to Evans NPG which doesn't pressurize the system at all.

Just looked at what you were talking about on the link. That is THE perfect hose for a cold side coolant reroute. Where can I buy one of those online within the US?
