I predict that your car is going to overheat due to such microscopic coolant lines. There's no way you are going to come close to flowing what the larger oem hoses do. I would have left them alone.

I don't think so...The only other change I'm making is adding 2 more -10an lines to the rad next week so two of the bigger lines can go directly to it.

The small -6 lines are the coolant overflow line, the small one going to coolant crossover, which isn't much bigger than -6, and the turbo water lines.

The main 2 are -16 and huge. With those two -10an additions, it'll run almost like stock w no issued I think. Those lines will all be more than large enough.

You look at the duratec coolant lines at all? half the lines up top are as small as -4an lines...super small and no issues.
