So here it is, the Dayco 72226 Radiator Hose installed on the Jeep SRT8, the only thing that had to be done to the hose was have approximately 1 inch cut from the end of the hose that goes on the thermostat housing, as the 180 degree was getting just a little kink since the hose was a little long on that end, but overall, the install went off without a hitch and looks as good as factory, i haven't put any hard launches on it yet, but once I do, i'll give everyone the results.

Sure didn't, didn't have to cut anything, except for one inch off the end of the thermostat housing end of the hose, as the length was pushing the hose away from the housing and putting too much of a kink in it

Alright, well I just took a pretty lengthy cruise, with 2 or 3 fully stopped launches, and several downshift runs, and afterwards checked the hose, no leaks of any kind, either at the radiator end or the thermostat housing end, so the hose is holding fine, temps are good, so far so good then!!!!

It's too bad this guy does not sell the aluminum elbow any more. He sold all of them pretty quick and it is what I have.
