Check the overflow tank for any cracks or signs of leaking, coolant level sensor, and auxiliary fan switch are the only other things to check.

The hose you got on Amazon is probably fine.

Alright cool. I was actually looking at aftermarket overflow tanks as well to clean up the look of the engine bay a little bit. Thank you for all your information. I just have to figure out where all those things are now.

once you start taking everything out it's really easy to get it all back together, I got both the Mishimoto radiator and overflow tank new from my friend for a crazy good deal but they're not what I would call an upgrade, it was just a good deal

Just a heads up It's a nightmare to bleed this radiator:/ I had to take the driver side hose off and fill it from there to get most of the air out.

Okay so just judging from your pictures, that is the same radiator that I have. And now I have even more questions. So when I had the overflow hose blow out it was actually on the way too work and I heard a hissing after I parked the car. I saw the issue and I cut the damaged part of the hose and re attached it. Then I filled the overflow tank with distilled water once the car had cooled down. It then proceeded to overheat on the ride home or at least come really close to overheating on the ride home. When I popped the hood there was no more leaking and no hissing and no obvious signs of leaks besides the massacre that had occurred in the morning. So, how exactly do you bleed this system once I reinstall it?

You probably had some air in the system, there's a lot of great posts on here so I would start by searching but this video covers basically everything on the cooling system for our cars

Default Potential Radiator Enhancements

Keep in mind that the ~$200 Stewart has the same life expectancy as the stock pump, as it contains the same size bearings. Ask me how I know. Additionally, Stewart recommends their pumps NOT be under driven, I don't know if that is a general statement that includes the 88-8010-330.
