yeah, sometimes if you get rough the pipe join can crack inside the heater box..
thats how i stuffed the first one in my ea, so now if the heater hose has to come off i just cut it off and replace it..better to be safe then sorry... :)

i dont think u have to remove them from the heater box when doing a engine swap???

troyman- when u cut them do u leave the off cut bit on the pipe or cut it off completely. if u left it on i think it would hit on the firewall when your taking the heater box out??
