Ah crap, I must have looked at the wrong fuelab schematic. I ordered one thinking it matched the tech document

The mini regulator comes in the 535 or 545, but you'll likely want the 535 configuration. Packaging is much nicer and easier than the full size version and they're only a few dollars difference in price.

I was hoping it'd work with the Radium for I already have

The coolant spacer is a great product. I'm in the middle of the install process on mine. The fit and finish was a level above the competition and that sold me on it. I'm glad I found it because I was minutes away from hitting the "buy" button on another site...

What is the casting process called? It gives the aluminum a flaky, galvanized appearance I haven't seen before.

I appreciate the kind words.

The finish your seeing is from the deburing process. The spacers are all billet machined pieces.

Ah, That can explain it. I guess they must be tumbled then?

I finished the install this weekend and things went pretty well considering I did it with the engine in place.
I couldn't get this spacer to work with the factory coolant temp sensor because the connector is too big to fit next to the heater hose with everything installed.
I had to ditch that OEM sensor for a GM one that used a more compact connector and then I had to lengthen the wires about 6" or so to get the OEM harness to connect.
None of that is a problem for me, although I did get the thing installed once before I realized the sensor would not work... -_-

We just got our first batch of thermostat block off plates for those that would rather not dig into things and block the cylinder head port.

They should be on our website shortly, but if you have an interest just shoot an email over to [email protected]

Includes:
(1) Thermostat Housing Block-Off Plate (1/4" Aluminum)
(1) Gasket
(2) Metric Fasteners

Same price as the other block-off plate kit ($19)

Kirby,

The coolant reroute parts are used to route the coolant from the front of the cylinder head to rear in an effort to cool more effectively. These parts combine to allow you to move the thermostat to the rear of the cylinder head instead of at the front.

Thanks!

What are your thoughts on the comment above:
"I couldn't get this spacer to work with the factory coolant temp sensor because the connector is too big to fit next to the heater hose with everything installed."

Is this a known issue, or is there a solution? Does everyone usually just change to a GM style sensor? I have to get my car OBDII tested annually so the less sensors I have to change out when I reinstall the stock ECU, the better (especially ones buried behind the engine)

Thanks for your input

rigid,

That was the first time I've had that feedback. It is known that there isn't a ton of space back there, but we've sold a number of these and to my knowledge the others have been able to get the factory sensor to work

Good to hear, thanks for the quick response!
I'll likely be placing an order in the near future

Sorry guys, I didn't mean to be alarmist. It is likely that the issue was a rare one but my OEM sensor screwed into the spacer such that the sensor body was positioned straight up and down. This meant that the OEM CTS connector could not be installed on the sensor because the heater hose was in the way. I've MSPaint'd a crude drawing of the interference. Hopefully it makes sense. I likely could have solved my problem by adding another washer to re-orient the CTS but I had a GM CTS at my disposal and the means to easily change the calibration in the Haltech ECU so it was an easy swap.

We installed one on one of the race cars last weekend without any real issue and took some pictures. I'll try to get one put up this weekend.

Thanks for the clarification Chris.

Still staying plenty busy! All parts in stock.

LSx Coil Brackets will have coil plug wires available for both the 90-00 and 01-05 VVT engines in the coming weeks.

Re-route works great. I used dual gasket with RTV and have seen no leaks 3k now.

Picture doesn't show final install but may help get an idea of fitment.
