Is this only visible with the belly pan off, or is it serviceable from the top?

Have to have the pan off. It is directly under the radiator area.

:eek

How about having one made, mandrel bent? I think lots of shops can do this. It would eliminate the kink.

I was going to change the coolant and put springs in my radiator return hoses and noticed the pipe that feeds the radiator has a nasty fitted bend in it and is rubbing on the intercooler return pipe. The poor bend looks like a significant restriction concidering it's small size and the flow it must accomodate at high RPM. I put a rubber insulator between the two pipes that touch and am consideing buying a new pipe to see if it is made better. Anyone have the same issue and done anything about it?

I seem to remember a post from Shadowman or someone on this issue.
