My EA82 just cracked a coolant hose. I poked around under the hood, and all the rubber is dead. vacuum lines..rock solid. they just make a little crack noise and drop off of their nipples. Maybe one reason this engine is sackless, or are they relly sackless to begine with? I need to drive a good running one to know. Or I could do a 5-30mph times accel at WOT and compare with others. The root of the issue is that I plan to install an EJ22 and ditch the EA cause its sackless, but I need the EA to move the car untill everything is set to be installed. So should I spend the cash to get vacuum line and coolant hoses for an engine theat is only going to be used for a few more months or should I just keep the rpms low so it doesn't leak out of the hose and limp it untill the EJ?

Hoses Are cheap Walking isn't fun. Besides you may be able to sell your old engine.
