Agreed! Something to get the ball rolling a little faster... I really need this piece. Would rather support BEGi than piece it together elsewhere.

Not a problem, we can move it closer. If this suits everyone, I will post prices.

Okay, so what does one need for a standard 1.6 setup? Using the factory thermoswitch, sensor for dash, heater core and an extra port for a secondary water temp gauge.

the dash sensor shouldn't come into play. so I'd do it like this:

A: heater core outlet 3/8"
B: extra port 1/8" or whatever you need
C: thermoswitch m16x1.5
D: factory clt sensor m12


what i posted was merely a suggestion of how BEGi could handle it, because I know everyone would want something a little different, and the positions (a,b,c,d) for models years might need to be changed.

Yeah your right, It's mounted in the head. Where is the factory clt sensor?
We have thermoswitch which controls the fans and the sensor for the dash.

in factory form, the thermoswitch is on the front water outlet. the coolant sensor is on the rear one.

i dont need the thermoswitch personally, but it perfectly fine to be installed after the thermostat, so you could splice it into the upper return hose. that way you don't have to **** with the harness and moving the connector.

I do have someone to test it out. If all is good, the price will be $89.00 for the spacer housing and $209 for the complete racer re-route.

Yes, but Id like to have that spacer so I could move the t'stat into it instead of the head and be able to have a port for the heater core. Some day I'll probably want the heater back.

Braineack how thick is the spacer you are using? The final issues I am running into are with the Kia thermostat housing and the fastener required to bolt the assembly onto the head. With the current configuration I have the bottom bolt will not fit between the head and the firewall.

Thanks

1". I had my spacer on the head, then installed the head

you could slot the hole for the housing, much like the spacer. that way you could put the bolt on first, then slide the housing into place...

I was very temped to just pull the head and me done with all this last night, but I really do not want to do that if I ever have to replace the thermostat. I also think it will be a bigger benifit to the community if we can just get this done correctly! I geuss I have another couple of trips to BEGi is store for mme next week.

Ok the 1 inch BEGi spacer is on the car! Now I am looking for help with hose routing the upper radiator hose too short to reach past the intake manifold and the clutch line is in the way for most of what I have tried. Anyone have any ideas and or part number to get me going? I will post a few pictures later today once I get back home. I really need the car back together and running today as I have a track day on next Sunday and still have to get the car through a tech inspection.

Thanks for all your help guys

Little thread resurrection.

I just did some work on my system tonight. FWIW, the Kia waterneck is a different size than the Mazda one. Will probably use a larger hose so be prepared for it to be too large for the radiator connection. I couldn't get the OEM upper radiator hose on it.

I think now I'm going to be doing what Brain did and cut the port down on the 1.6 neck and finding something to plug that hole, unless I can find some better fitting hose for the Kia piece. However, the spacer I had made locally is 1 1/8" thick instead of 1" so it's going to take a little more work. Brain, do you remember off hand what pitch the bolt was you used?
