A big thanks to Cliff M who found this and shared it with me!

The larger silicone intake tube I've been using can rub on the upper coolant hose due to its size.

Cliff searched and found Gates 21710 off of a 5.7 Tahoe is a good fit as a replacement, and has a bigger bend for more clearance. Lots of clearance now.

We had that issue in the beginning. Nice to see someone came up with a good solution. Mine has a mesh cover over the coolant hosehose. In a pinch you can put a piece of duct tape there temporarily.

Hey Will we discussed this from the start. But it had slipped my mind.

I will for sure. I just put a plastic sleeve on it.
