I cant find a pic any where of this style set up, but when im not thinking about it i see it all the time. I like the look better than the cool flex hoses i just cant see spending 3-400 on hoses so i thought making them out of pipe i could be more creative and keep it on a lower budget.
I got some pics from the Good Guys show. This guy put all chrome hoses and even replaced the radiator with one that has a cap so he could delete the coolant resvoir. Its a pretty slick set-up, but I don't know if I would do that to anything but a show car.
So you can delete the coolant resevior?!!! i want mine gone so i have more room for the wheels, i was going to swap radiators from a 91-93 but wasnt sure if it would work. Someone let me know a definite answer please...
Im going to the Street Rod Nationals this weekend at the fairgrounds hopefully there will be some hot rods that i can get some ideas from.
The LT1 needs to have somewhere for the steam pipe to go. It comes from the back of the heads thru the throttle body then to the coolant tank. It also needs to be at the high point in the cooling system in order to prevent steam pockets in the cooling system. The tank on the b-body is more like a surge tank that a resevoir.
