    Nope it won't fit, engine may be the same but the radiator isn't in the same position. Not 100% sure but I'd imagine Samco would have known this when they built the kit as it's twice as many sales that way. Try and ask to fit it before buying and see if it does.

    You could try LMF as they are stocking the Roose motorsport hose kits.

    Roose don't do one for the Z18 or X18 engines as yet. He will do one when I eventually sort out a set of hoses for him to copy but I can't find a couple of them yet
