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.
