    Open Loop Cooling question.

    Guys, If I would go to open loop cooling how would I hook up the thermostat housing. Pic below...(best I can do, hope you can see what I'm talking about.)

    I would loose the ride plate connections.
    I would loose the antifreeze bottle.

    What would I connect to items 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5?

    Any other water connections to worry about??

    Thanks!!

    My understanding of it is you cut off that 'cone tower' looking thing. Hydrojunkie has a how-to on it on the Island Racing forums and maybe in his conversion thread too.

    you can't use a stock thermostat housing for open loop... i'm confused what ur asking.... where fitting #6 is... put the housing in a saw and cut it all off right there... it's all useless and doenst get connected to anything

    either you need to heavily modify and cut up the stock thermostart housing, or you buy the kit in jerry's online store

    That's a '5' Steve. I was asking about using the stock thermo housing for open loop. Didn't know Jerry had an open loop kit. I was trying to figure out what to use on the housing. If I cut it up does water from the tunnel intake to the sc get split and run through the thermo housing for oil cooling, etc.?
