    Thanks, I follow you.


    The 1fz’s lower hose is comprised of 2 hoses with the aluminum 90 degree pipe between the two.

    I don't don't recall seeing a 90 degree pipe on mine. I wonder if it was replaced/updated with a single hose at some point. Mine was a 1 owner truck serviced at the lexus dealer regularly.

    Here’s the elbow I’m referring to, and the idea I was tossing around in my head:

    Obviously I’d remove the bracket.

    That’s what my plan was sometime this week. If you have the P/N handy still that would be a help. Thank you.

    Thanks. I’ll give that lower one you listed a try. I’m running a mech fan and it looks like any of the truck uppers will work with a section removed.

    :bounce2:I’m thrilled to report I deleted VATS from the ECM with HPTuners and she busted right off tonight!:bounce:

    Been a relatively easy swap, but I’ll be glad to wrap this up soon.

    Do you guys have to do this to your frames to do a swap? :rofl:
    I still have 4 body mounts to do behind the rear axle before I get started with the motor.
    Here's the build thread if any of you want to see more.

    Thanks again! Perfect fitting hose with 1” cut off each end. Apparently it’s for a ‘99 Ford Explorer. Bought a Gates hose for $15
