Can you elaborate a little. I know that I still have the "old" radiator hoses and would like to upgrade sometime. Are you saying that if I want the better (newer) setup, I don' need new hoses, just additional o-rings and the new clips? Or am I mis-understanding?
Sorry for being a little vague...I too have the older hose. You can upgrade to the newer version (white hard plastic end) which has 2 o-rings inside versus the 1 o-ring that you and I have. All I did was replace the 1 o-ring (part #8590A) on each end of my existing hose and the metal clip (part #8B365A) at the thermostat housing + coolant of course. Worked fine for me, no more leak. I've been researching the need for a coolant filter and ended up ordering one just for piece of mind. There's rumors and ideas that there might be mill sand leftover and circulating + the issue of all the "Gold" coolant and "particles" it seems to produce as I see it in my degas.
If you want to just upgrade the hose, it's $85 (part #8260)....I spent $35 and was done, but I'm cheap like that....like to put my $ towards mods
