Does this also apply for use *only* on the radiator outlets/inlets?

I'm considering placing my radiators in the bottom compartment of a TJ07 case (as many others already have) and there it seems the elbows are necessary.

I could be wrong however and I don't have the case (yet) so I cannot test.

I think the longer tubing could also help because it isn't putting as much horizontal force on the block. Longer tubing (longer and less sharp bends) doesn't twist the block up off of the mount as much, leaving a much more solid contact patch.
