pretty easy install just annoying because you have to get your hands behind the block should take about an hour at most 2.

I have implemented the old begi reroute with a twist.
I'm using a 3 way ball valve to adjust the water flow to heater/top rad hose.
I should be able to test it on a track come summer time.
Parts cost around 60-70$.

He was already told in his thread that it is a stupid idea, but I guess he did it anyway.

Congratulations of fixing a problem that shouldn't have existed in the first place and gaining nothing in return.

a 3 way valve? Did you even use pipe tape on the front of it? That looks horrible and unreliable.

You mean you don't like your engine bay to look like the plumbing section at home depot?

Pretty much. The purple primer will permanently stain ANYTHING, and that glue... Even in open areas that **** will make you dizzy

You can laugh all you want.
Temp balance was checked with an IR gun. Stock way #4 is hottest as obvious.
Driving with the reroute the temps are more or less BALANCED through out.
Means #1 and #2 run hotter but as long as I'll see less than 212 at the track I don't care.

I was never a believer of terms like "may" or "could happen" like many of you use. Show me facts.
I run with UG and the temps are fine. No leaks whatsoever.
