    I have a 95 ex coupe with a d16z6. I have a sir-2 I am about to drop in. the motor came from japan so all hoses where cut. My question is will the heater core lines that are on my ex fit the b16a. What about radiator hoses? How well would my stock radiator perform? let me know!! swapping in a few days and I want to have everything ready.

    just go get the hoses for a del sol VTEC... they fit right on

    the D series hoses are smaller in diameter so they dont fit well on a B series engine

    youll be fine with your stock radiator

    if you feel the need to upgrade get a fluidyne

    so even the hoses going to the heater core are larger in diameter? or can I get away with just replacing the radiator hoses?

    have you replaced the hoses since you bought the car?

    it's never a bad idea to replace the hoses when you swap an engine, it's one less thing that could go wrong.

    also a cheap upgrade from your current radiator is a delsol dual core, and whats nice about it is that it's oem and you have the option to have the end tanks be made of brass welded to the core..

    Heater core hoses are the same, only radiator hoses need to be changed. Just get B series hoses, might have to use hose clamps to put it on the radiator.
