    Thermostat houing and n/t water pipe.

    If you are choosing to upgrade turbos maybe like to a hx35 or something and dont know what to do about all your stock coolant feed and return lines? There is a way to keep stock appearance and get rid of them. I mean you could just block off the holes but why not make your engine bay look cleaner. How you ask? Easy as pie. All you need to do is find a n/t 1g with a 4g63 in the junkyard and snatch the thermostat housing and the water pipe. BOOM issue solved now you dont have to worry about leaks if you didnt block the passages off good enough.

    If you can't find an N/T waterpipe you could always have the holes welded closed. Any fab shop should not have a problem doing so. I did that when i eliminated the heater core lines and 2g water lines to the oil filter housing.
