Heater Hoses (V8)

I don't know if this has been mentioned here, I haven't seen it... The heater hoses on the 2012 SS's have been relocated from the top of the engine to the right side of the engine and include a section of hard line (tubing). I noticed this at a car show today on C5 member SS2012's car. Now I have yet another option for relocating my heater hoses this winter.

I assume you mean the TechAFX pieces. Thats the only one I know of that had a hard line section. Mine will hopefully in the mail on Monday. Overpriced but they look real nice and I don't have the time to bend them myself.

No, these were factory hoses according to the owner. Car was built in August 2011. I had to show him on my car where the hoses used to be from the factory.

Ditto....

I just got some of the hoses off of Amazon... if there is a 2012 OEM solution... i might do that if it's not too expensive. Otherwise meh, i'll go with what I've got.

I've been looking at pictures online with the new 2012's. Although I haven't seen any super clear pictures it does look as if they relocated the hoses to the side instead of routing them ontop.

Very interested in this, I hate how the hoses run over the top of the intake.

I have confirmation that the GM parts exist, you'll just have to take my word on it.
FYI, miles cheaper than the aftermarket setup, but it is only heater hoses only, no fuel line reroute which I think is included in their kit.

The Katech solution is only $39.99. How much is the GM part?

The factory heater hoses are now aluminum pipes routed down along the frame rail. Very similar set up to the TechAFX relocation kit.

Not familiar with the Katech solution, only the tech afx.

The GM price is priceless because it comes from GM.

Go in there complaining about gurgling from the hoses and get them replaced under warranty Just kidding. I like the idea of having the metal hose like the TechAFX. OH ya and if you do the 2012 mod and you still can get away with warranty work if they don't catch on that the 2010's and 2012's are different at the dealership.

are you seriously saying that GM will refuse warranty work if you have different heater hoses on your car? really?

Your local dealer can give you part numbers and order the parts. Sometimes certain parts are on order restriction. Depends on supply level. Other parts will require a vin number before the dealer can order the part.

If your heater core or something associated with the hoses goes bad and sees that you have non OEM hoses in different places then yes they can refuse the warranty work. Not too likely, but would you take the chance? I'm planning on blowing up my powertrain warranty anyways so it wouldn't matter to me.

Thats the entire purpose of the Magnusson Moss act. You can use aftermarket parts to replace factory parts and they can't void your warranty unless they can prove the lines were the cause. Kind of a stretch for a piece of hose of the same diameter.
