I'm in the process of uprading my RPM intake to a Victor Jr. Since the Victor Jr has a raised water crossover / thermostat mounting pad, I think I am going to have Thermostat housing to water pump hose length issues. The original motor was a 91 5.7L with the design 2 thermostat housing. or the tall one all cast is one. Does a big block have a longer hose or maybe one of the 500HP bulldogs with a single plane intake have a bigger hose? Or does anyine know of a slighly longer hose than a 32-861590A05 or 806825. I'm going to mock it up tonight, but I would like to get a hose on order if I'm going to need a longer one.
