Everywhere I have read about reroutes, they had to pull the motor.

nope... i made a front block off.. (or u can use a 30mm freeze plug) and used the front housing in back... put thermostat directly in head and ran coolant hose from it. I got a buddy club sensor block, and drilled and tapped for the water temp guage and then wired fan to ignition..

Wait so that's it? No spacer needed? No modifications to the neck to be able to bolt it? Just:

- Remove Water Neck from Front
- Install Block off Plate on Front of motor
- Remove Block off Plate from Back of Motor
- Install Thermostat into back of motor
- Install Water Neck from front
- Run coolant hose / water pipe from back of motor to radiator
- Install Buddy Club Sensor block somewhere in the middle

I'm guessing the only catch is you eliminated your heater core?

That's what your thermostat's for. I live in Washington and my fan is always on and even on the coldest nights in winter it still runs great.

So clean, I love all the smoothing you did, that's my favorite part. How is that typically done? Body filler?

There is a way to retain the heater when doing a coolant reroute: swap the water elbows from front to rear and the elbow with the small outlet will be on the front. Attach a heater hose to that and you have basically swapped the rear and the front of the engine. It isn't optimum, but it is better than the original setup.

Hey Matt, have you had any issue with electrical sensors/electric parts in general? I've heard that lengthening all those sensor wires can cause them to read improperly because of voltage drop off or something like that

I extended pretty much every wire, and I don't have any issues- you'll be fine.

Here is what I got going so far, Just deleted what I could and didn't touch the driveside yet.


So what is the easiest way to relocate my fuse box?
Does everybody put it under the dash?

Also can I just loop the 2 tubes together for this resivior and call it a day?


Any help with ODB-ll would be great!!

Depin the fuse box and put it inside.

Worst advice on depowering a steering rack ever haha. Depower it the right way, that way you don't need to be superman to turn the wheel.

LOL not.

If there is no fluid in the rack the the seals aren't pressurizing anything. Either I am super strong and wrong or I'm not.

Edit: If you leave the rack full or just take off the belt then yes it is hard as dick.
