There isnt any other real world use for it. Thats a 1" ID line, thats huge. But for coolant you want -20 (1.25"), the size of your stock hoses. If you run -16 you might run into cooling issues since its not able to flow as well.

Yeah but are they just tucked people or are they boosted as well? Boost puts a higher strain on your coolant system.

The coolant system flow is choked down. You wont flow as much coolant therefore the temps wont stay down as well. Fans run longer, more load on the electrica l system, etc etc...
Would you run -4 fuel lines??

My fuel system is -8/-8 but Im kinda overbuild ing that part. -6 would be plenty for what youre doing.

But if you wanna go all out, you could use the -16 for your heater hoses. Baller right there.

i have more 16 lines then i need so i could do that...i posted up on NWP and got a couple responses ..2 guys are boosted 1 races and the other hardparks but they both have the rad fully covered by the intercool er the hardparke r did say he lives in AZ 115* heat and drives an 1hour + to work everyday. ...also a guy in florida who races says he has 12 AN lines with no problem.. ..so it looks like i'll end up runnnig these 16 lines and upgrade later if i have any problems

im not disagreei ng with you. just adding my thoughts.  the coolant system isnt all about "flow". If there is too much circulati on, adequate "quench" might not be achived. If you circulate the coolant too much it doesnt get to sit in the heat exchanger to get cooled down. id say as long as there arent any tight bends or huge restricti ons youd be fine with -16. But it looks hella puny to me.
