Re: Thermostat housing change
I too don't want to change the nice chrome thermostat housing that was supplied with my engine. What I was going to do was have a piece of 8mm stainless tube Tig welded into the top stainless hose between the thermostat housing and radiator.
I guess this pipes main purpose is to release air into the expansion tank during filling of the system with water so as the highest part of my system is the top hose I thought I would put it there but keep it close as possible to the thermostat housing to cut down on the length of pipe back to the expansion tank.
Of course this will only work if you decide to use the stainless tube from dax with silicone elbows connecting both ends. If you go all the way with silicone tube then I think demon tweeks do an in-line aluminium sleeve with a thread coming out at 90 degrees where a pipe fitting could be screwed in.
