boost docs replacement upper radiator hose outlet

Recommended Posts

Found I have a pin hole in my upper radiator hose and it sends a pretty nice steady piss stream out when the car gets warmed up so I will be replacing my cooling hoses here in the very near future. I have already had to trim that same hose back about due to the hose outlet being corroded as they always are on 25's so I figure that would be a good time to replace the outlet also. Just curious if anyone has had any experience with the boost doc replacement fitting? https://www.boostdoc.com.au/product/rb25-top-radiator-hose-outlet/

any issues with it leaking?

tips for getting the old fitting out?

has anyone actually done it in car as they advertise?

I haven't used the Boost Doc piece but I have replaced the same pipe on one of my RB25s with a similar piece I bought from Unique Auto Sports. I can't remember if I did it on car or not but you should be fine either way. Depending on how corroded yours is you may be able to get some multigrips on it, twist it around and work it loose. Failing that I'd use a cold chisel to collapse it in on itself then it should pull right out. The replacement should be a slight interference fit and tap in however in my case the fit as it was a little loose so I used some JB weld as extra assurance. That was 6 or 7 years ago, no leaks or problems since.

    • Hey just wanting to know if a R34 gtr wheel hub will bolt onto a R34gt rear knuckle?  I am doing a 350z lsd conversion and I came across an issue with the rear axles fitting into the wheel hub as the spline count is different. I think the r33/4 (GTR)wheel hubs are 32 spline while the standard 3x2 rear axles are about 28,  the 350z rear axles I’m using are also 32 spline so I don’t see why it won’t fit apart from where the hubs bolt onto the knuckle  I am not 100% sure about any of this and would like some info before I go mix n match and help would be appreciated.🙏  
    • There is none when used in the radius rods. I am a strong advocate of sphericals in that location.
    • Oh damn, thats seriously cool. I have the Thrustmaster T248 which is the entry level one. Its really good but I have no basis for comparison as I've never used a better one. I'd like to change the pedals for the pressure ones (cant remember the name) and get a proper frame and seat because I just have a stand for the pedals and wheel now and I need to brace them against things so they dont move when I'm trying to pull up after a long straight! 🤣 EDIT: These ones; https://www.thrustmaster.com/products/t-lcm-pedals/
    • Pulled the lazy pin and ordered the 4 new calipers for just over $600
    • My son will go for his driver's licence next year so he thrashes GT7 all the time (with the wheel, pedals and shifter). As a result he's always talking about updates etc so I play quite a bit too.  A few times every week. The regular updates are awesome. I mainly just do time trials vs my son. The current hotness here is the Aston Martin Valkyrie around Nordschleife @ 5:38.9
