on a g13bb engine you could probably use the mk3 89 - 94 4 piece radiator set. you can find those on ebay pretty reasonably priced, $35 to $55 in us dollars.

if you are changing to silicone hoses remember that you will need to upgrade all the clamps so that they don't cut into or abrade the silicone. you will need something like an aba clamp or a fully shielded clamp with a range of around 35mm.

the id of the hoses will be 26mm and 5 ply silicone hose walls are around 4mm x 2. :wink:

the 3 piece hose set will take 6 clamps.

you can buy bulk silicone hose for the rest. you will want some 12mm, more 10mm, small water hoses are 8mm. windshield washer hoses are 6mm, some vacuum lines are 4mm and others are 3mm. on my engines i needed about 6" of 2mm for the fuel pressure regulator vacuum tube.

when i built my blue monster turbo3 i spent 3 times as much for 316 stainless steel aba clamps as i did for the actual hoses. on a turbo application vacuum hoses can also be pressurized so i used secure clamps everywhere. that blue monster took about $800 worth of silicone hose and clamps. :blackeye:

Thanks for the reply. Ill start looking for that stuff once my radiator dies or hoses need changing. I want to get an aluminum radiator but hate to swap now while the stock stuff is still decent. Hose prices seem good, I may get a set of the coolant hoses soon and then change it all when the radiator needs changed.
