LS swap, upper/lower radiator hoses. What did you do??

Discussion in 'High Tech Retrofits' started by QUAKE_WARS, Jun 28, 2017.

  1. Custom or stock, what did you use?. Looking for ideas, thinking of using 90 degree elbows with copper tubing. I would like to see some options before I spend more $$$$$$$$$''......

    Are you talking about using the original style radiator with the outlets in the wrong place? I decided it would be easier/cleaner looking to just get a radiator for an LS engine. Not the cheapest option though...

    I used polished stainless tubing which I welded together and re polished. The tubing is connected to rad and pump with silicone couplers. Dont use ugly metal flex or rubber hose please.

    Where are the inlet and outlet located on your radiator? I ask because I don't want to advise what I used in the event we have different radiators.
     
  6. I ask in another post for you to call me, not sure if you seen it. I need info from you. Thanks

    I used a napa nbh8333 for the lower hose from my factory style radiator to my 5.3. I dont have part number for the upper sorry.
