    so i'm getting ready to start buying things for my turbo kit...

    the first thing i need is a half size radiator and new hoses (for looks)

    so i saw this for a delsol

    for $105

    then i saw these for a 88-91 civic
    [​IMG]

    for $52
    these are not the best products but they do the trick.. are they what i need?

    my question is what hoses do i need to fit the half sized radiator....i know i have to slant it towards the engine...but i know nothing about the hoses...

    right now i have a 90 teg rad and hoses

    so it does not matter what car its in; just as long as the hoses match the rad?

    actualy he can use the civic hose in his swapped car. I am using teh civic lower and teg upper in my b16 crx. I had to trim teh teg upper about 2 inches to make it not kink.
