I don't see why. Once the bolts are clear of the thread, the whole assembly can be lifted out. No need to back the bolts all the way out of the water neck while leaving everything else in place.

Yeah, looking at it, if the thermostat needs to be removed, I'm going to have to pull the hoses off and pull the entire assembly off. It's not going to be incredibly easy, but not a huge undertaking either.

If I slotted the hole on the thermostat housing, it looks like I could pull the bolt completely and pull it out of the way, then if i loosen the second lower one that would allow me to pull the assembly off the bolt, change the thermostat and but it back without completely needing to remove it.

Looking at it more, i think I can use the stock upper to make the 90* bend off the outlet.

I might be able to use the same to route the hardline back to the radiator inlet, much like this:




If not I've found a few bends that look like they'll work:

Where did you find those catalog shots? I've googled a couple of the numbers and found them from various vendors, but none show them in such a nice, graphical form.

No you wont. I had to pull mine off a couple times after I got it all back together. Its a tight fit but you can get it all out.

Looks like I have an excuse for removing my EGR now and will get to do that tomorrow night. BEGi is working on piping and hoses this week I should have them and a fished version by Friday.

advanceautoparts.com, their new site is much better, if you don't put in a car you can search everything.

Wow- what an excellent resource! Be nice if you could search by diameter, but still, that's the best hose catalog I think I've seen on-line yet.

Same boat, except I got a 1.6L neck. Thinking about snagging a Kia piece anyway, just to delete the bung.
I wonder if BEGi would consider welding a 5/16" inlet on the underside of the return pipe so I can run the throttle body line into it.

Ok guys I will be picking up my Kia water neck today and then I remove my EGR and do a test fit of the BEGi spacer tonight. I will post again aftr I am done tonight. Is there anything special anyone wants to to look for during the test fit tonight?

I am doing all of this with the engine in the car so there may be blood involved.
