On my 8th lap, with my stock water temp gauge at halfway, I thought everything was ok.

I did a cool down lap and parked my car with a 30 second turbo timer cool down. Then after the car had its engine off, after around 5 mins, I hear a gush a water coming down. The by-pass hose gave way again!

I have an aftermarket radiator and oil cooler.

My top and lower radiator hoses are samco. I am trying to source a samco by-pass hose.

A friend suggested having a aluminum or stainless steel fabricated, to be mounted on cut by-pass hose ends.

Another question, is the stock water temp gauge just like the oil pressure gauge, meaning its way off? After I installed a aftermarket oil pressure gauge, I realized the stock one's were way off.

There are 2 water temp sensors. One is for the ECU, the other is for the gauge. The water temp sensor for the ECU is the same as the AIT sensor. I believe they are accurate enough for the job they do.

Yeah thats what I felt, because on my stock radiator, I saw my water temps go up to 3/4 on my 4th lap.

So I was confident that everything was fine.

I will also check the viscous clutch too if its still functioning up to par.
