    Z18XE owners, need some help

    I'm currently getting together a set of coolant hoses for the Z18XE engine so that we can have a set of silicon hoses made up for our engine. However I need the 2 main coolant hoses, the top and bottom radiator hoses plus the 2 quick release hoses from the rear of the engine which connect to the heater matrix.

    Has anyone got these spare that they don't mind sending me? can't pay for them but can return them I think when they are finished with.

    If we can get all these hoses together we can finally have a set of silicon hoses for our engine so start looking in your garage

    Ken...as with the rocker cover...you can have these bits so long as they're in tact when i get myself the new engine...I don't know if it'll be any good to you by then as it could take a few weeks for me to find my replacement

    I'll keep you posted

    No real rush, if I can get a full set together we can finally get a set of silicon hoses for our engines

    Yeah Dave it should be a full kit, everything I hope. Top and bottom hoses of course, header tank hoses (although I've already got them) throttle body hoses (few of those) plus hopefully the quick release hoses for the heater matrix. I've contacted the maker and he's unsure on the quick release ones until he sees them, we may end up with a kit that doesn't comprise these although TBH they are right at the back of the engine and not readily visible.

    When and if I get all the hoses together and he makes the first set I'll post that info and I'm sure he'd be very interested in a group buy as basically he's making the kit to sell as many as possible.

    No idea of a price yet I'm afraid, suppose it depends on the amount of tooling that is required to copy the OE hoses, I'll keep everyone informed.
