Ported intake question

Hey guys, just wondering what your doing with the coolant port in your intakes, welding a fitting in and runing a hose similar to an egr delete? Or blocking it?! Whats the plus and minus of both ways Ported intake question-imageuploadedbyautoguide1368151649.941425.jpgPorted intake question-imageuploadedbyautoguide1368151671.743949.jpg

You will have to plug it and return it to the degas bottle. The way you have it now anything you do now will interfere with the oil cooler. I know I tried. This is what I did but its a little elaborate

Any down side to buying a filter base and running coolant filter off that port coming out of the oil cooler?

I had thought of doing that also.The only thing is it's directly after the cooler that you are trying to keep clean.

Two potential downsides.....does the coolant filter have a high enough flow rate to keep the engine from starving of coolant? And, if it ever does fully plug from being too full or some other catastrophe, no coolant will pass through and engine damage may result.

That's the glory of the bypass kit....no high flow rate needed so you can get great filtration, AND if it ever clogs no big deal, coolant still flows through your system like normal and you won't overheat because of it.

I plan on running the BPD air cooled oil cooler so on my Ported intake I could totally remove the coolant from the intake correct?

The coolant to the oil cooler is just one port coming from the water pump and will not block off the coolant to the rest of the engine. It'll still screw your motor up but because your getting no cooling for your oil.

Yes. You could do what I did which is to tap and plug the EGR cooler return. Ported intake question-imageuploadedbyautoguide1368540980.266197.jpg
