ST205 hoses on 185?

Postby underscore » Sun Apr 24, 2016 2:31 pm

Hey guys, just wondering how many of the ancillary hoses from an ST205 will transfer over to the 185? I know the MAF -> turbo section is different and the upper rad hose is different, but are a lot of the other little vacuum lines and such the same (or close enough)?

there is a nipple on the intercooler near the throttle body, this needs to be blocked off as I believe its the AC idle up.

otherwise you really just use all the st205 vacuum wiring as its on the engine and suits the engine.
the only mods are maybe the brake booster vacuum line (RHD don't need a mod but not usre for you LHD guys).

and the radiator hoses. I run a 205 upper hose cut down and I believe a 185 lower hose (came with the car) I have a samco lower hose but havnt brought my self to cut it up yet.

Sorry I should've been more clear, I have a 185 with a 185 engine, but I can only find a hose kit for the 205 engine.

For radiator hoses you must get 185 hoses so keep looking samco make them
