I also ordered the 2012 hoses but meanwhile I did the relocation using the hoses from NAPA. Here is a quick shot.

good info will...my engine is actually coming out, and i will be looking into the 2012 kit as i can get at gm cost of 52.00.. that is a big diff from 189...not knocking your kit...i am interested at looking at a 2012 camaro as i have not had an oportunity yet..do you know how your kit is diff then th gm kit? maybe that could justify why it is 3 1/2 times more $$$..as far as i know, they have not moved any connection locations as my club member is a gm line mechanic and he said that nothing has changed from the 10-11 as far as he knows... it calls for 1 hr replacement, but for now does not know if this part will phase out the 10-11 models heater hoses...gm does not like to make 2 seperate parts that do the exact same thing...he seems to think that since the 2012 is the latest version , the older models will be replaced with these hoses when they need replaced..imo, i could be wrong...till they are out , we will not know...

I have the Tech AFX kit on my SS. I like the OEM style quallity of the design and it makes the engine bay a lot cleaner. However, it can be a pain to get to the spark plugs and some of the header bolts.
I ordered the GM hoses and will change the heater hoses the next time I have to change plugs or work on the headers or drain the coolant for some reason.

Somehow all my coolant went back in at one time, maybe because the front of the car was raised up.

Installed my this weekend. Thanks Paul.

The only hitch was the removing the hose. After removing the clamps, those weren't going to come off regardless if I used a blow torch, LOL. Those thing were fused in! I recomand not waiste your time trying to save them and just pull out the box cuttter and slice them out.

I also have to drive the car around a few times in order to refill the the radiator. Made a huge difference in the appearance!

Have you ever seen a gentle dentist remove a childs tooth? I have and that's how I removed my hoses from the heater core. Firm grasp on the hose close to the heater core tube and small (tiny) gentle slow twists back and forth. It will be loose and slide off in short order. I used long needle nose hose pliars with the bent ends.

How about some pictures Nathan?

I know this is an old thread but just wanted to say thanks for the DIY. I installed a SLP supercharger over Christmas and could not believe how those damn heater hoses were in the way. Bought the 2 hoses online and just finished it all up. Looks great! Really appreciate the info. Great and easy mod.
