Used a 24mm and Torque it to 14Nm.

From what I understand, behind the heater control valve the system is not always open so you are not always getting flow. What I do not understand if that it is when the heater is off, or when the AC is cranked on high. Either way, with the "T" in front of the valve you will always have flow regardless what your heating/cooling system is doing. Like I said I had it wrong first, I just then switched the position on the "T" and the heater control valve.

Hijack over......
No problem on that because I just put mine on and had a hard time deciding which way to go. Luckily it only fit the one way after I grabbed 2" of heater core line from auto zone .. wouldn't stretch back by the firewall luckily I guess

I just swapped the two locations, now my heater control valve is where the "T" is and vise-versa.

Looks like I am too late as I was just getting ready to post this. I went and checked and the oring he ships is not right (diameter to small), he would be better off not shipping one at all. I am putting mine on tomorrow and will let you know how mine turns out. Overall, minus the o-ring, the quality of the machining looks spot on. I went back and checked his feedback more closely and he has well over 150+ of these sold with positive feedback within the last year....and only 2 negatives. So I am pretty confident that with the right o-ring it is a good piece. If all goes well I will leave him positive feedback but bring up the o-ring thing. Glad you got it not leaking!!!
