    Just finished searching on here about the radiator hoses when swapping in a 96 b16 into an ek hatch. People have different opinions on which hoses to buy. I need to stop by the auto parts store tonight and order all my misc parts.

    Do I need both the upper and lower rad hoses out of a 99-00 si? Or just one or the other? Are these a direct fitment? Also read some people mentioning the Del Sol vtec radiator hoses?? :confused:

    Go to Honda and tell them you need the radiator hoses for a 00 Civic Si and make sure you tell them it is for a B16 or they will get you the wrong ones. All you need is a little WD40 and those puppies will slide right on.

    there is my problem. A lot of people think it will work. but ive searched for the answer and here are some examples of what im getting...



    . use your stock radiator. just get a lower hose for a 92 integra ls and an upper for a 99 civic si. youll have to buy aftermarket hose clamps for the radiator because the D series hoses are smaller than the B.

    comment pointed at above statement...

    and Id like to see the hose clamps that allow you to use the stock rad and not spew water all over the place.

    another answer...

    94-01 teg any trim level should fit with no mods.

    and another...

    use a Del sol DOHC vtec upper radiator hose with a ladder clamp on the radiator end, will fit like it came that way

    can ya see my confussion? lol

    i think i paid like $13 for the upper and $22 for the lower. but i went to every parts store and always got hoses for the SOHC D. i even told them i need the hoses for the DOHC and they didnt carry them. save yourself the hassle and go to Honda and order them.

    sweet, thanx for the help man. Do you have those part numbers just so i KNOW they order/give me the right ones? lol

    Also, if a mod sees this... could you add the needed radiator hoses to the "B series into EK Civic" thread under your "Swap Articles" section. That was the first place I looked :D

    I am not sure if this is the part # for the upper or lower but I think it is the upper. You can ask them when you get there.

    Part# 19501-P30-000
