    I have a custom turbo setup but use a FM manifold and downpipe. I I have both ac and ps and my turbo compressor points down there isn't not a lot of space there. This hose fits perfectly with no cutting needed. To anyone that says this doesn't fit I have to question your ability to work on cars. Great product

    Does not fit well with a/c and ps. The a/c and p/s lines pinch the rad. hose restricting flow. Car still runs good however. Havent had any overheating issues as of yet.

    Note from FM: thanks for the feedback. The fitment is definitely tightest on the 1.6 cars like yours.

    The quality of the product is great, the new hose clamps it comes with are amazing and easy to fasten if you orient them the right way. The hardest part for me was figuring out how to route it with the a/c and p/s lines. It WILL fit on Na8’s w/ both. I just ended up having to cut about an inch off of the end to remove a kink in the line because it was a bit too long in my application. Overall would buy again, it feels nice only having two failure points on my lower hose.

    '91 NA w/ PS and AC. I had no issue with the fitment. It sits close to the AC pulley, but no rubbing. I DO have the FM crossflow radiator, but the exit outlet on the radiator should be the same or similar as OEM. No issues, quality product.

  5. Radiator Hose works as intended but I would think that in 2020, there would be a much more "refined" option in regards to routing/plumbing this specific hose.

    Installed on MSM with a FMII Kit. Its a very tight fit given the intercooler hose, powersteering, etc is all in the way. Tried a few configurations which either impacted the intercooler hose or radiator hose. I ended up cutting the engine side hose around 3-4" and plumbed it for "minimal" impact to both hoses. It works as intended but would be much easier to route on a car without AC or powersteering.

  6. Nice hose but the geometry is wrong

    Nice quality hose, but it does not fit 2001 with PS and AC. It just doesn't seem to have the correct geometry and rubs AC hoses or PS pulley. Had to put my old hose back on which is a perfect fit. I suppose if I hacked it up I might get it to fit.

  7. FWIW.. On NB's (such as my 2002 w/AC & P/S), your factory lower hose will function fine by cutting approx. 4" off from the block side (before the kink). Mine has been fine for 74k miles w/FMII. A like replacement silicone one should be fine as well.

    Good looking high-quality product. Just doesn't work on all applications.

    Tried to make this fit my 2001. No matter how I ran the hose it rubbed on the power steering pulley or the AC hose. It is a high quality hose though.

    Note from FM: Packaging is tight in that area. We know this hose can fit, as we've been using it on 2001-05 cars with AC and PS for over a decade. We're sorry you weren't able to make it work - please contact our support techs for some advice.

  9. Just buy it even if you dont need one (unless you already have this)

    To start just in theory 2 points of failure is way better than 6. Multi layer silicone means it will last forever, and the Miata is a good car to test the forever theory.
    Fitment was fine no issue. I dont know what happened with Mr. Tye Martel.
    I like it......ITS SHINEY!
    What else can they do?

    -Its high quality.
    -Its easy to install.
    -Its better than the factory design.
    -Its backed up by a solid company
    -Looks good

    *Fits great with FM Radiator upgrade!
