    you didn't get the hoses with your swap? just get the hoses from a 99-00 si.

    yep, the Del sol VTEC uses a civic radiator (actually a dual core, but same size inlets) and it has the b-series inlets on the block, so they get smaller as they go from block to radiator. I used the GSR hoses (which are not really the right hoses) and they leaked a little bit, but they were ok for a tempery thing. Finally when I got my GSR radiator in there, they worked fine.


    With the SI, it uses a full size radiator (basicly the integra style) and on the full size raditors, the inlets are bigger.

    :huh: The si uses a civic sized radiator just larger inlet and outlet. its not full sized like the integra.

    From the Del Sol DOHC Vtec... I think it was 94-96. Could be wrong though. Has to be DOHC....
