Default CNC Machined Coolant Spacers

After making some custom CNC machined aluminum billet coolant spacers for myself and several other forum members, I have had quite a few people contact me asking if I could do a low quantity production run and offer them at a lower cost.

So, here’s the deal. I went ahead and placed an order for 20 40 coolant spacers similar to the one shown in the photo. The main difference in the new design is that it includes a 3/8”-18 NPT port instead of an AN10 ORB port for the heater barb. The inclusion of an M12 x 1.5 port for the stock temperature sensor and a 1/8”-27 NPT port for an extra sensor is unchanged. The orientation of the ports is set up for a 1.8 L head, and the spacer will work with the Kia Sephia/Spectra thermostat cover (0K247-15172A).

Price each is $54 plus shipping and PayPal fees. I can fit up to two in a small USPS Priority Mail box. They will be ready to ship in 4-5 weeks. PM me if you are interested.

Maybe a Noob question here, but what's the difference in the orientation for 1.8 vs 1.6?

I'm down for one, but not sure I would need one. (I actually cant reach the oil filter if I block it with a coolant hose, so I'm going to do a partial reroute. I'm going to install a pipe straight from the back of the block towards the hard line bypassing the heater. And I will add 2 5/8ths barbs for the heater, but in this case it gets what's left over vs passing water thru it. I'm no genius, but I'm guessing theres just a bit of restriction/back pressure form passing thru the small tubes/fins. I'm guessing this is the cause of the extra 5* on stock miata's and since I'm staying stockish aka no boost, I dont need the extra complications of a full reroute.

What I do need is 2 coolant temp sensor threads, 1/8ths NPT and 3/8ths because I want 2 coolant gauges (long story....).

Do the standard reroute then man up and reach around the hose for your oil filter. That, or get it from below while you're there with the drain plug already. It's not as hard as you're thinking it up to be
