Thermostat lines loop?
Sunday, June 23, 2013 6:54 AM
Is it possible to just loop the lines off the thermostat housing? They are resting against my turbo and will burn/melt a hole thru them. Or can they just be plugged off?

Yes you can loop them. Youll just lose your heat

eh!!! Ive already deleted AC. Might as well lose heat. That's what sweaters are for. Thanks for the quick reply. I COULD re route them....just don't feel like buying more hose. Ive probably spent over $100 in shipping with Summit in the past month or two. ha!

Dumb question but you cant just pull them over and zap strap them and wrap when with header wrap?

Do NOT block the lines off!!! Your car will more than likely overheat if you do it. I looped my heater core lines temporarily with my first turbo setup, and the loop got pinched most of the way together blocking a large amount of the flow, my car was very close to overheating multiple times. I made new lines and not a problem since in the 6+ years since I made them.
