Default Who sells a forward facing lower coolant hose fitting?

My stock (back facing) coolant hose (lower) gets way too close to my header.

Where can I buy a forward facing coolant fitting/line/heater line?

Begi, artech, and I'm sure others make what you are looking for. Or use an oem (or was it a Kia?) water neck if you don't need a heater core return. This is off Paul's old car. Looks like he tapped it for a hose barb, probably for the turbo coolant return.

If I remember correctly, we used the thermostat cover from a 1.8

I was having a hard time finding things because I still do need the heater. Will contact ARTech.

That's perfect. I guess I'll be giving BEGI another shot.
