Amazing what a "belt tuck" will do for an engine bay, isn't it? :o

EGT sensors are normally a bit smaller than that, but i thought the same thing.

Yes, just cut them and bend them. It comes with a few different "sleeves" to fit just about any radiator. I may do something different with the top hose, with all the bending, it's kinda in the way of everything. But, it works for now.
