The second one is functionally the same as OE when it comes to pulling for the heater core. It's still pre Tstat, just moved to the front so you don't have to use a special spacer to make for a source at the rear of the head. That said TomBRG drilled the back of his 1.6 head made a heater core source for the pre TSTAT too.

It's if it goes through the rad or not...

Reaction time of the thermostat is a bit slower than if it were mounted closer to the head. It will continue to divert hot water into the pump inlet for a while when your head heats up quickly.

I think the idea is to warm up the air so it runs better when cold - less smog.
Actually I think the idea is to prevent icing of the throttle body in cool climates. Cool, moist air travelling at high speeds (such as the intake of a Miata) can deposit ice in much the same way as happens to aircraft wings at high altitudes. Imagine driving along the freeway for 100 miles, throttle open at a steady clip, but then you come to your exit and take your foot off the gas but the engine keeps pulling because the throttle butterfly is iced up in the open position... fubar.

Has anyone messed with this reroute? The guy says it can't be done on a pre-2001 car because of the coil packs, but it should still be possible using the M-Tuned housing... right? You would have to use a plate for the front of the engine though I think because the M-Tuned housing has a heater core outlet too...

EDIT: Never mind, I'm a tool - you would still need the M-Tuned thermostat housing or a suitable substitute...

Forget the stock coil packs. A toyo COP set up runs you $100, and has performance gains to boot. I've saved more on spark plug cables since I did it than I laid out, and yes, there's a lot more room for everything now, including my reroute.
