Default rotating coolant manifold 180 deg.

If I rotated the coolant manifold 180 degrees would I have cooling problems?
Instead of the line coming out by the power steering pump it would come out
by the starter… pm me and I can email pic. sry not sure how to post a pic.

this is for a setup that needs the radiator mounted behind the engine
and trans without needing to run long hoses around the intake.

thanks:
Sam

actually you can remove the tank all togeher .. the tank allows water to recircualte AFTER the engine is off .. its not totaly nessicary but helps cool the turbo

well when the atv will be about 800-900lbs... and im not wanting to go more than 50 or 60... i think it will work. lol it came from a wrecked car just sitting at the house.. so i thought "hey im going to make something fun out of that" so with a budget of less than $600... im not going for high performance. lol but thanks for pointing out my miniscule engine hahaha

Here are some pics of my suby powered ATV. First engine was a EJ25 phase I block with EJ22 dual port heads, AFB carter 600cfm carb and distributor. It made crazy power and would easily do wheel stands.

After that engine blew I put in a EJ18 fuel injected engine. It didnt have half the power of the EJ25, but was still fun
