    Too short for 2.5i 7 months ago
    5out of 5stars

    Star rating based on quality of product, not fitment issue. LOWER hose (GAT22885) is too short for Impreza '07 2.5i, re-used original hose. Rallysport direct website says it was incompatible but I called and representative on phone said it would work. Listen to the website. Website says UPPER radiator hose (GAT22886) fits 05-07 also. This is correct & I just used it and fitted new CSF3356 radiator to my '07 2.5i Impreza no issues.

    Lower gates radiator hose  10 months ago
    3out of 5stars

    It didn't seem like this hose is for a factory replacement with factory radiator. Its about 2inches shorter than the oem hose i took off. It might work better with an aftermarket thicker radiator. I returned this hose

    Works great 5 years ago

    For the lower radiator hose you may need a bit of trimming. Reason I did mine was that it wanted to kink or bend at a radius I wasn't really comfortable with. But once I trimmed it a hair, and then started the car, the pump and heat took care of the kink. Just remember it may look a little more severe because there is no pressure or fluid in the system. Well worth replacing. Do worm screw clamps as well to ensure a snug fit. Just remember you're clamping down on aluminum, so use your best judgement on tight but not so tight you crack something.

    Slight trimming may be needed 5 years ago
    5out of 5stars

    I'd say I took off maybe 3/4" in total (some from one side some from the other). When I placed on the bottom the length made the hose kink a bit more than I was comfortable with. Some trimming and letting the car put pressure in the hose after all was said and done. It looks regular and is operating just fine.

    Not a perfect fit 5 years ago
    4out of 5stars

    Currently installing this hose with a mishimoto radiator. Doesn't appear to be a direct drop in. I've attempted to twist it around to get an optimal fit but doesn't seem that's going to work. Going to pull this out and trim it like a few other folks have mentioned.

    • Q: High Pressure Radiator Caps  Farting Hello Kitty 5 years ago

      Is it okay to run this hose with high pressure radiator caps? I'd like to pair it with a Mishimoto radiator and Koyorad high pressure caps.

        A:  Gates designs these radiator hoses to run with the OEM coolant pressure. I would not recommend running this hose with the high pressure cap.
