    B18C in a DC2; the hoses are longer compared to a B16A in and EG.

    However, if you have a B18C in an EG or an EK; this would be a different case. You might want to check with people have this type of configuration.

    note: DC2 uses the long type radiator (airdcond in front & radiator at the back). while EG and EK uses the short type radiator (aircond & radiator side by side). thus the length of the hose might vary.

    I'm using eg/ek samco hose in my ef and there's no issue.
    Important is it's for B16/B18 then you'll be fine.The extra length does not make a lot of differences.
