All i gotta say is wow. Have to remove the air filter and interooler pipe to get to the water pump end. Course prolly would have been alot easier if i wasn't using the only pair of channel locks that i had with me which are large enough for the largest filters. Hose was rubbing on the back of the steering box and rubbed a pinhole into it. Besides the one hose clamp the other difficulties was tryin to find a hose. Ended up having to have it shipped into o'reilly's. Oh well enough ranting.

i caught mine before it rubbed a hole in it...i used the old hose to wrap the new hose (give it a little more protection)
I didnt have to remove the intercooler tube (but then i wasnt using channel locks either ;)

I saw some slight rubbing up top so i used what was left over of the old hose there too...the rubbing up
top is mostly cause of my coolant by pass filter "T".
