I have a stock talon upper hose, the lower hose is half talon, half turbo colt. Connected in the middle with a piece of muffler pipe adapter from the hardware store. The lower hose is not the greatest looking but its under the intake pipe anyways, no one can see it.

Cool, that makes things easier. Don't suppose you have any pics lying around?

The stock Mirage hose is way too short. VR-4/Galant hose is also a bit short, and we don't get DSM's here. Might order a Gates silicone hose kit (1G DSM part# HK6RB... just noting that for my future reference :P )... would be a shame to have to cut the bottom hose though.. if a 4G63T water bypass pipe (the one that runs along the front of the motor) was used, could the DSM lower hose be used uncut?

Probably as I had to use the DSM hoses when I pulled my 1.6t out and installed the VR4 JDM motor setup.

I dont have any pictures of the hoses, but I probably could get some later today when I am out there. I also dont think that the lower hose can be uncut. In order to make mine fit without cutting it there was a spot that was too distorted and would of restricted flow. I am unsure what bypass pipe is on my engine, thinking its the 63 pipe. The pipes do come out on different angles. I still had a major issue with the upper and lower rad hoses to stretch over the fittings on the rad.
