Default WTB begi or similar coolant block off plate

Don"t want to pay begi $28 for shipping a $25 part that is smaller than a leprechaun's hand. Either one works.

EDIT: ignore me...I can't read...

I made one myself out of scrap metal, a drill and an angle grinder.

I've called Stephanie directly and asked her to use a cheaper method i.e. USPS or even my own UPS account and she has. You may try that first.

You don't want the begi one anyways. You want the freeze plug and blocking plate TSE sells. The begi block off plate leaves the huge water neck just sitting there being ugly and in the way.

Yeah I looked into that as well. It sounds like it would be an extensive added value to get an aluminum radiator as well

If you still need one, I have a block off plate that's tapped for coolant temp sensor ant 1/8npt stuff you can plug. It came with my M-tuned reroute, but I just freeze plugged my head.

Just pay shipping and provide your own gasket.

I'd also vote for the TSE item. Much nicer to have the space in front of the engine.
