This high quality reinforced silicone hose kit replaces the 2 oil cooler water bypass coolant hoses in the engine bay under the exhaust manifold, commonly referred to as the "Hoses From Hell". The original hoses are prone to cracking and leaking due to the proximity to the high temps of the exhaust manifold. The hoses fit all MR2 MK2 Rev1-2 Turbo models and all Celica GT4 ST205 models.
These hoses are also included in our Toyota MR2 MK2 Turbo Rev1-2 Ancillary Coolant & Breather Hose Kit which can be found in our store.
The kit is available with a full set of hose clamps using the options above. The three types of clamp we offer are shown below, but not all options will appear for some kits due to size limitations:
Spring clamps are the most commonly used type by vehicle manufacturers. They provide excellent evenly distributed clamping force and are generally the best option for clamping coolant hoses, but they can be fiddly to fit/remove, and being mild steel they are prone to minor surface rust if their coating is chipped/scratched. Whilst this won't affect the performance or lifespan of the clamp some customers prefer our stainless steel options below which tend to look better and still perform as they should.
Worm-Drive clamps have slightly less evenly distributed clamping force as the Spring type clamps, but they are still a good quality clamp and usually easier to fit/remove in the tight confines of an engine bay. Being 100% stainless steel they do not rust, so we recommend this type of clamp if you are concerned about the appearance of your engine bay.
T-Bolt clamps * Not available for this Kit *
For some vehicles the original clamps can be reused so we also offer our kits without clamps, but please be aware our silicone hoses are slightly thicker than the standard hoses so in some cases the original clamps may be too small.
