    cant get better than factory

    Some things shouldn't be improved. I mean its a radiator hose. It works great and looks factory. If thats not what you want don't buy. Unlike aftermarket radiator hoses, this is not cut to fit. Most aftermarket hoses are. It's a hassle and worth the extra dollars to have factory fit. I have been ford master certified and can tell you there is a big difference in quality of parts. When you go to the dealer the biggest cost is the parts. In automotive you get what you pay for. You can always trust factory parts to do what they were designed to do and there is always a better fit. They are designed specifically for your car and to be easily installed in manufacturing which means easier for you to install.

    Rad Hose

    This is the exact Motorcraft replacement fitted hose at much less cost than a dealership. This hose was also more expensive as a "special order" from one of the auto box stores than it is through American Muscle.

    The right hose, the right price!!

    I bought this upper radiator house to replace a mishimoto blue silicone part i had installed on my 1996 Mustang GT. The silicone one failed so thought i would buy a original Ford piece. Went to local Ford parts department but they wanted twice what AM wanted. ordered it from AM, great deal, shipped same day and got to my door very quick. Don't neglect your radiator house, get it done right with a real Ford piece. It is so simple, has markers for what end goes where and where to put the me, the mishimoto one was too long and wore out. Do it right and go with Ford Motorcraft!!! Save your $$$$ and shop with AM!!! I also bought lower hose as well to play it safe...way to go AM for getting Ford parts, at great prices!!!

    Perfect cooling/Be-Cool

    This genuine OEM upper radiator hose was a breeze to install. It took less than an was a snap. I also installed a Mishimotor thermostat from American Muscle with a lower temperature setting than the OE thermostat and my mustang is always running cool now. I had not had one problem of my stand overheating since I installed the new radiator hose with new hose clamps and the new thermostat. My mustang has never run so cool before and I live in Colorado where it is cold most of the year. Another great and awesome product from American muscle.
