The coolant pipes to the matrix run along the back of the bulkhead, the original jubilee clips are poor and one of mine was weeping, new clip sorted it. Maybe worth a look mate

Ive had a leak from the same place twice and wasnt easy to fix, think you have to remove starter motor to get at it

basically mine was a connection on the block that goes to the heater matrix i think, anyway mine rotted away, took it to one garage and the fudged one that only lasted about six months, second one I had put is much better

i have only had this for 1 day,its got all the rsp turbo kit etc on it,would they have put a new one on when that was done?
As far as i know the rsp turbo just uses the std oil and water pipework, so there would be no need to change that pipe.

I had this twice on my old R33GTST, 2nd time the pipe was replaced with some Porsche Re-Enforced hosing. Was sound after that. Pain to do think the inlet manifold needs to come off.

Our kit retains the standard water feeds and only requires a uprated oil feed.

I think that the standard water lines are more than good enough and I have only seen about 2-3 crack in 8 years! If you had a 200sx that would be different as they seem to break all the time. :)

We can supply new braided lines if needed though.

could have been worse, is it just the rubber 90 degree??

pig to get to, if you cant get to the clip behind the head, bypass it with rubber all the way round!! ;)
