Default Needs pics of your Coolant Re-Route Route

I have the M-Tuned Coolant Re-Route, and it works great. The only thing is the Upper Radiator hose is in constant contact with my IC hose. Nothing major, but looks bad. I need some pictures of how you have your UR hose routed. I'm installing my mishimoto this weekend (70 and sunny ftw) and I want to get this taken care of. I have a few ideas, but was wondering how other people have done it. Thanks!

Thanks for the pictures. I think the only option is pretty much make a 90 degree left and then back 90 degrees and make a straight line for the rear of the engine. That is what I was thinking, but just making sure there wasn't some magical route that would make my life 100 times easier.

I found the magical hose when I took a trip to advanced auto for my reroute supplies. It basically looks like an M but all 90 degree bends. I hacked off a V and ended up with a nice tight Z hose. I'll snap a pic and get the part number when I swing by the shop tonight.

I think for some reason my FM piping is further forward than all yours. I'm gonna go take a picture....

EDIT: No I'm not... my camera's battery is dead. But I swear you guys have more room.

There was room on that Z hose to cut it shorter, and that's on the long neck of a PWR radiator.

The hose is Dayco 71519. It seems to actually be a universal type hose and not for a specific vehicle as far as I can tell. As you can see if your piping clears the OEM fan this hose will clear. And there is probably room to cut it shorter too.

Am I the only one that just pivoted the stock upper radiator hose? Or do I have way more room since I'm going straight out of the throttle body for an over the radiator setup? I have pictures if you want them.

Notice how all the pics in this thread are for 1.6 intake manifolds, not the 1.8's like ours. I just got home and its 12:20. I'll have to remind myself to take a pic tomorrow after work.

Not true, Doppelganger provided a helpful picture of his valve cover.

Here's the way mine looks. It's the hose that comes with the M-tuned kit and has the spring in there. The spring is about 4-5 inches from the end i would guess. I had to put a 2nd clamp there because it was crimping a little bit, but it didnt affect my coolant temps. I drove around for a while with it crimped a little bit and had 180* temps all the time. I put the 2nd clamp on there because others were concerned (I wasnt) and it looked bad like that. And YES, that is a smiley face on my radiator cap. My friend Eric did that.



And here's a pic of the engine bay:



Sorry for the quality, but I snapped these pics quick with my blackberry before I went to work.

That is pretty much exactly how mine looks now... I just hate having it hit the tubing like that :/ Hopefully the Mishimoto doesn't make it worse.

Yea, the neck of the radiator is seriously right in front of the TB. I'm running a 2.5" 90* coupler on the TB. There's really not that much room there to play around with it. I also have a mishimoto radiator to put in there. Before I put it in, I might see if Tim would be able to move the neck or even angle it 45 degrees to the left.
