Great ! And thanks for supplying the hose part numbers, saving those in case I ever need for my '98 or 2004.

Make sure that you use quality hose clamps, not the stock junk that's on there. If you're doing the bypass hose, you really should replace the heater hoses as well. Be VERY careful as the inlets to the cabin are brittle plastic nipples...

I use made-in-USA hose clamps.

I've had to redo a coolant bypass hose once when I reused the stock hose clamps. They just don't provide enough surface area to make a good seal and if they do, then they will leak in the future when the hose hardens.

My bypass hoses actually got very soft. Could've been due to a power steering fluid leak that has since been repaired.
