Default sard radiator on a turboed rs

basically the setup i bought came with an sti resevoir tank

3 barbs on top and 1 on the bottom

now one barb on top is for the turbo coolant return

and the one leading from the cap is the overflow line


NOW THIS IS WHERE I NEED HELP

the last barb on the top feeds to the rad.

and the big one on the bottom is supposed to go to the water pump

but since rs engines pumps arent setup to recieve this line i was told to" T just at the water pump exit"

is this correct?? should i even bother doing this?


cant i just plug the top line and use the bottom one to route straight to my radiator?


im not real familiar with this
but it works out in my head

let em know you thoughts

OK, looking at this pic I borrowed from IA Performance, the bottom nipple at 6 o'clock is the coolant return line, the one at the 2 o'clock pos. is the overflow and the one at 3 o'clock is the radiator feed- the one you cannot see is the water pump feed that goes into one of the black coolant crossover lines that go across the top of the block. You could seal off that bottom nipple or re-route it elsewhere if you have another source to supply your water pump- I don't see an issue here provided you have coolant going to all the adequate areas.

yeah thats just a better description of what i said


thanx

the one to the turbo is going to be blocked(mine is not water cooled)

and instead of running the 3o'clock one to the rad i was just going to use the underneath one for this

is this ok?
am i missing something

i mean there was never one running from this tank(basically because i never had this tank before) to the water pump

so do i need to run one now?

You could install a wrx water pump and then you'd have that extra inlet. Not sure if you can just t it off though.
