just a quick one hopefully for someone who has done it
bear in mind this is the first time i've properly studied the flow of water on this engine or even the cooler setup on it so this may seem a bit newbish but want to double check what i proposed to do
this is an s16 iron block engine but i bet the flow is the same as the gti6 engine
below is a diagram of how the engine is setup at the moment:
i propose to ditch the standard setup because i wanted to run a proper cooler for a bit, but also in an attempt to ditch the standard tophose with the take-off on it, as it's a pain in the arse trying to route my intake setup under it as there's not enough play in it
judging by the kits you buy on ebay and from race places, typically the mocal setup, would something like this work:
(LOWER RAD HOSE NOT PICTURED )
or am i totally on the wrong lines?
also, i'm blocking off that pink hose from the thermostat housing to the distribution block at the back, which used to go to the matrix, but this is long gone so feel it's doing no good really..
