They forgot to tap the AN16 ORB port on the water pump inlets! It'll now take another day for them to finish.

Anyhow, the rest of the parts look great and fit perfectly.

















I was just wondering when we would see a picture of that last piece. It looks great, minus that part about not being threaded lol. I am excited! thanks again!

I wasn't on the original list but skou offered me a set sans hardware that someone backed out (i think)
They arrived today

Mine came today too! All very nice. Really looking forward to using these. A few pieces banged together in the box but no real harm done, fittings are easily sourced. Did I see earlier in the thread that the part numbers and website for the fittings was posted?

I've had a few people contact me about doing another run. I am waiting for the shop to send a new quote. They have already told me they are so busy that delivery won't be until January. Unfortunately, going to another shop would mean paying setup fees again. If anyone is interested, shoot me a PM.

I would add that the coolant spacer is compatible with the Kia thermostat cover and doesn't have the potential issues as with the BEGi spacer (e.g. possible interference between the bottom of spacer and the top of the transmission and possible over stressing and cracking of the Kia thermostat cover due to inadequate seating). I don't mind making up a bunch of spacers by themselves if there is interest.
