    I'm swapping a b16 into my 93 Civic (still)...and I'm not sure which hoses to use. I bought a delsol dohc vtec upper hose, but it's too short, and I tried using my original d16z lower hose but the diameter is too small.

    If anyone can give me some feedback I'd greatly appreciate it....Thanks

    Thanks for the input guys....


    FYI....I tried to get a delsol upper hose from Autozone...(I know, but I just needed a hose).....to use. They have the same upper hose listed for the d16z6 and the b16a3...no wonder the damn thing didn't fit....

    Stupid place is trying to keep as many universal parts in stock as possible...no way in hell that hose was going to work...

    They did the same thing with a motormount for my CRX...took em 3 tries on 3 different mounts and they still couldn't get it right-and for a kick in the ass I found the correct mount CHEAPER at the dealer!!!

    I went and got 94 Acura GSR hoses and bought new clamps. They fit and lenght was very close to perfect.

    rodzilla....did you buy oem honda hoses or go to a parts store and request hoses for a 94gsr?

    The reason I ask is it's a holiday weekend and I need the hoses now but the dealer is closed so my only option is a parts store.......preferrably not Autozone...lol
