I was having a difficult time getting back on the site this past week and I'm not sure I fully answered your question.
I have direct fit coolant lines that just replace the factory rubber coolant hoses. They are the easiest of the coolant lines to swap out for someone that doesn't want to start taking things apart.
Then I have the 8AN coolant lines that you need to remove the banjo fittings on the turbo and take off the steel coolant hardlines along with the factory rubber lines. You get adapters with the 8AN lines and screw them into the turbo and the fitting just screws onto the adapter. The other end of the line just pushes over the factory water pipe on the thermostat housing or the water pump and uses a hose clamp to tighten it up. This is still just a bolt on setup, no drilling or tapping involved.
The top of the line is the FULL 8AN steel braided coolant lines which you remove the small pipe from the thermostat housing and from the water pump then drill and tap the hole so an additional adapter fitting can be installed.
This means you have an 8AN fitting at the turbo and at the water pump / thermostat housing for a completly sealed system that will not leak. This is a great upgrade for an engine that you will already be changing the water pump or the thermostst housing pipe is corroded, pitted and already leaking.
I checked Autozone and Advance and both say they can get new (not remanufactured) water pumps for about $50.00 plus tax with a lifetime warranty. I was told by the dealer the thermostat housings are no longer available the last time I ordered them just a month ago so you might want to grab up a spare just in case yours ever gets so bad you can't stop it from leaking. If you wanted to send me the water pump and thermostat housing I can also install the fittings for you.
If you have any other questions please let me know.
how much is shipping to 95116 for the direct fit coolent lines..??those are the first pic correct?? i wouldnt have to tap the t-housing for it right??
