    NOS otterstat pipe

    Hello

    I've just bought a NOS otterstat pipe since mine showed some pitting on the clamping areas.

    This is how the internal of the NOS pipe appears:







    What is your experience with NOS cooling pipes?

    That does not look bad. You can use something to clean it so you can see if any deep pitting has occurred. Where I saw deep pitting is on the outside where the hose is clamped.

    You can get a brand new otterstat pipe from DeLorean go with an updated screw in type sensor.

    This is a great upgrade. They also now offer it in Stainless. I have the aluminum version in my car and the other advantage is the fans come on at a slightly lower temp.
