Never enough welds!

I am going to pick up a modified fitting that Victory Racing in Livonia for the line from the feed for the heater. Guy put it in a lathe to get it exactly the size I wanted for a hose!

I would use as close to stock size as possible. I'm most worried about the small size of the thermostat to radiator, and radiator to water pump. If anything I would have gone bigger than stock. you are running 3-4X the horsepower, you need as much flow thru that radiator as possible.

The thermostat-to-radiator is a -16 line. It's over an inch across. It's as big pretty much as stock. I'll show you a picture lol

If nascar vehicles use -16an lines from the pumps and for radiators and MAYBE sometimes -20an, I'm good!

This is from pump-to-radiator and radiator-to-thermostat:
