Why not integrate a barb with the EGR blockoff plate and have a direct vacuum source for the FPR all compact and nicely placed and stuff

I've been thinking about this actually. Maybe I can find a weld-in NPT bung to add to the existing block-off.

Or it might be more economical to just double the material thickness and simply drill and tap for NPT, provide a plug and let the end user figure it out. That way you don't have to source the bung, drill, weld AND plug.

I'll take a regular coolant block off plate in the meantime unless you already have a turbo feed solution. Is the current version ready for tapping for this purpose?

I have the coolant block off plate on order so this is somewhat of a moot point, but I was wondering if the hive mind thinks that your blockoff plate can a) be used without a freeze plug b) so that I can safely thread it to run a coolant pressure sensor.

I know it's not an essential sensor but I am kinda a data junkie and if I can add it up front while still cleaning up the front of the block appearance wise it would be excellent.

I'm working on sourcing a solution for this, but at this point I don't even have a prototype. It's at minimum a few weeks out unless I really expedite things. Feel free to use our website if you want to grab one of the current offerings. We've only got a few coolant block offs left, but will be getting our next batch in a week or so.

I would expect you to be able to use the plate without the freeze plug with a nice thick gasket or a proper application of an rtv type gasket. That being said I haven't specifically done this, so assume there is a slight risk involved.

Thanks for the continued orders!

I found a local source for a part to integrate a 1/4" NPT female thread into the coolant block off plates. Stay tuned for updates!

The port can be used for whatever your heart desires. Most use it for an external water temp sensor location. It can easily be plugged with a 1/8" NPT male plug if it is not desired.

Sorry for the delay. Took a few days away for the holiday.

I'll take a look and get back to you.

FPR mounting holes are (.201") diameter with a 1.75" center to center spacing for the mini Fuelab regulator.

Any chance you're going to make a block off plate for the front of the coolant neck? It just provides such convenient access!
