originally, on my swap just some random's were used, but the upper actually rested on the intake, so now im going to change over to universal flex hose for both top and bottom,

which leads me to my question is where anyone here found the best place to get it from, i mean im sure local parts stores carry it, but which ones in particular did you guys find it at, all i saw was the braided shit at checker.

www.coolflex.com i saw some there, but thats spendy..

ek uses gsr hoses if im not mistaken, the lower one needs to be shortened
gsr hoses CAN be used but like i said before they rub/rest on the intake in most cases and thats not preferable to alot of people.. its much easier to get one you can bend to your own needs

what radiator are you all using. I know the the civic dx,lx,etc and 99 si radiators have a difference. have you had any cooling issues with the regular civic radiators? What about the fan did you have to buy a slim fan and mount it in front of the radiator?

I'm using an RSX radiator.
Use to have a DC2 radiator in my EG, and suprisingly, the RSX rad is a direct replacement =). Uses the same mounting points and everything..its suuuupeer!
