You got a link for that yo? I will absolutely. I hate my shxtty plastic piece of trash.


Cusser, nae that inlet isn't available. The 30i is a fairly rare motor so finding 30i-specific parts is a pain in the butt.


I think I'm gonna get 2 silicone 90s and a connector. I reckon that's the only way I'm gonna make this work anyway. Hopefully the silicone hose will seal up better on a connector so it won't leak anymore.

Barbed radiator hose connectors are readily available in parts stores, several common sizes.

Couldn't find any barbed hose connectors local, but I've got one on order. Reckon I'll try linking the 2 rubber hoses I've already bought together first and see if I can make that work. I already trimmed one to fit so I can't return it anyway.

Ah yeah they had those plastic ones, but I didn't really feel good about using plastic in the cooling system. I've fought coolant leaks on this truck for 9 years now and that seems like a sure way to get more haha. The one I ordered off Amazon came in yesterday and is billet aluminum.

I understand. I don't like plastic parts in "modern" radiators or the plastic quick-connects; I've had both those crack and leak/fail in our 2005 Yukon.


I even had a small leak in a plastic "T" fitting from a Prestone radiator flush kit after a few years when we had a 1994 Suburban.
