    The short one look amazingly similar, seeing as I just had mine pulled of to find the engine number last week. Perhaps a quick visit to a mitsy dealer/spare parts centre to have a squiz at on in the flesh.

    from looking at them i would say no,
    the evo ones look to curvy to me....

    the factory ones are fine....
    if you want more "bling" then www.rhdjapan.com
    sell a polished alloy hard pipe upper rad hose. (no lower one)

    why do you need one? has your one developed a leak? Getting them from NZ should be fairly easy.

    Hey guys, another thread mine here.

    Recently, my upper radiator hose just ripped so I ended up buying a OEM replacement rad hose for a Ford Fairmont from Super Cheap which has 70% identical bent and a little bit bigger in diameter (40mm) for temporary until I get myself a Silicone Rad hose.

    Anyhow, the question is, from what model is interchangable to our cars for rad hose? I've check with ASA and none is compatible.

    i'd say.. anything that fits :D also hoses that can withstand at least 1.3 bar :D just to be safe
