    block off plate is the peace you use when you take out the stock thermostat and put this on, the leak is slow and comes out at high boost, im guess the stock system just uses the little wheel to rotate the antifreez the pressure from the pump is way higher im guessing and the plate just cant hold the pressure thats why im thinking if we know the pressure that the system needs we can just put the relief valve and set to the same pressure that the stock wheel used

    When you remove your OE thermo there was O-ring you must remove it and put it in the Riva OL plate
