    No one running 2 thermostats? I don't want to install my Intake mani till I know where the kit mounts up, I added the cooling kit and was wanting to add this to outlet the additional water I supplied to the cooling system. I believe it might mount where the block anodode is....and thats under the intake mani

    If I remember correctly it mounts on one end of the head. I dont know but maybe 2 people on this site that run that kit. I went with the Riva cooling kit and left it at that.

    its on the back intake side of block. kinda under the manifold but not quite. U can see it there. It would be best to mount it with the manifold off but can be done without it off.

    I recieved my thermostst kit........everything good BUT.....they sent a 5/8 tee to fit a 3/4 pipe? Also they send 18'' of hose and expect me to tee into hose right by stock thermostat????

    The things I see wrong with this kit is obviously the tee being to small, but 18'' of hose? Come on man. If i tee into the outlet hose where the stock thermostat outlet is the pressure from the 3/4 pipe is going to overpower the R&D second outlet with 5/8'' I will call them but i plan on modifying the kit......im going to run a 1x1x3/4 tee and im going to run new 5/8 heater hose all the way to back of ski and tee where the outlet goes out so there will be less resistance and both outlets will flow there designed flow
