Default Need part number and/or model for coolant reroute thermostat cover!

Hi guys,

We don't have the particular BP-equipped Kia car in Australia, so I can't order the part you have been using. Can you tell me the part number and year/model of the Protege thermostat cover that will also work?

I ordered a 1999 Protege one, and it doesn't look right at all. The outlet is much smaller than I expected, and the angle isn't right (compare the angle to the brass fitting to the left used for the heater return):





As much info as possible would be awesome, in case the part numbers are different down here. Unfortunately they don't stock these so I have to order them in each time sight unseen.

Thanks in advance!

Here are the finished pics of my coolant reroute. The spacer is from MX-5 Plus and the housing is a Protege one (couldn't get the Kia one in Australia).

Clay, that thread does have alot of info but not the part #'s.

I called Kia today and tried to find a 97 kia water neck and the guy had two part #'s an they both had to be ordered. I just don't want to wait three days to find out I got the wrong ones.

These are the two part #'s
