You can get a second hand Saab rad for next to nothing and as for the hoses, making your own set up is no more expensive than buying a decent set for a normal rad. I think mine is a 9-3 rad and it just about fits without modding the body work.
You can get silicone hoses bends cheap on ebay,fit and reget
You can pick up elbows, joiners and hoses off ebay very cheaply, next to nothing if you are prepared to wait for delivery from China.
Fit and regret indeed.
Oh the lunacy of buying shite from the far East
, it is astounding to me what all they fake.
I agree that far east parts are suspect but very few parts are made in the west anymore. Where do you think many UK part suppliers get their bits from? The joiners I got from ebay are identical to the ones being sold by classic parts suppliers, except I got them for a 1/3 of the price.
As for the hoses, I bought them for a UK seller, though I suspect they got them from China. I went with rubber and I haven't had any problems. Unlike hoses from well known UK classic suppliers that started to dry and crack after 6 months.
