Default Aluminum Coolant Pipe Sources

I'm soon to be needing some sections of coolant tubes to connect between the radiator and engine. I see a lot of Cobra engine photos with what look to be custom pieces with bends, etc. Ideally, I would be able to get a few pieces so I would just need some short rubber/silicone connectors. I'm thinking of aluminum to avoid introducing stainless steel into the cast iron/aluminum mix.

Your suggestions on a good source would be most appreciated!

Summit Racing has the aluminum tubes and the rubber sleeve adapters and couplings. Just search for coolant tubes and hose couplers/sleeves.

Mark, if you use stainless tubing, so long as there's no 'mechanical' connection to cast iron or the aluminium castings, there's no problem.
