That looks pretty good. Going to leave that much slack? Or just havent trimmed them down yet. Maybe they need to be that long, I dont know. Good to know the size is correct. I guess I will go ahead and source the fittings to have them, incase I forget by the time its turbo time. For the early 1.8 blocks with the port already open, what is it plugged with? I cant recall even really seeing it in the past.

Thanks, the water lines are perfect length. The oil feed could be shorter but I only had a few options when I bought the line. Anything shorter that they had in stock wouldv'e been too short.

phil:

Let me explain you what is the problem with that set up.
If you don't have A/C and power steering in your car your set up is fine you don't need to worry about this comment, but if you do as I see the A/C metal bracket you have to find a way to move the braided line in the water pump down since it interferes with the A/C power steering belt that connects there. I don't think you are using either one or both but if you do, I guess is also more head scratching for you too.

There is nothing wrong with this setup. It is exactly the way it was when you came to my house and helped me set it up. The only thing I changed is moving the other line from the t-stat water neck over to the block.

Damn Phil, nice work! Looks good!

Hyper, did you not notice that the line is BEHIND the front of that A/C bracket (which you just edited your post to say you saw)? The belt goes on the forward part of the crank pulley, which is well in front of that braided line. Pretty sure he has that all figured out though.

What Hyper doesn't seem to realize is that I'm actually rooting for him. I want him to succeed and some up with something intelligent and well-designed. To see that sort of transformation would restore the small piece of my faith in humanity that died with the State of Florida v. Fernando Castillo.

Thanks and thanks.

Now just incase anyone is worried about the line interfering with anything you can see here in this pic that it fits behind the a/c belt perfectly. Im also pretty confident that is you have p/s you could make this work.

Maybe when you remove the old man avatar and put something like a crazy hard headed Tony Montana cuban kid, maybe I soften down a little bit. Until then, I rather choose the path of enlightment just like Christopher Columbus / Galileo Galilei did....

Hyper reroute concept is headed to the exhaust side, to the left.

Agreed with power steering. Especially now that you have the line feeding into the block instead of the t-stat and not in the region of the PS pump.
I can't get over how good that looks. I may have to change my mind on how I route mine and steal your idea. I was going to use some connectors I have and use braided lines on the same locations that FM/BEGi uses, but this looks a lot cleaner.

EDIT: Braineack, nothing. Look at the motor pics out of the bay, appears he has a freeze plug where the neck used to be.

removing and tapping the hose fittings is super easy, easier than the drilling the oil pan.

I expect that the picture of the engine still in the car is an older one, from before the turbo's feed was relocated from the thermostat housing to the side of the block.
