Default coolant pipe blocking

There are two pipes that go from the water pump to on top of the block one feeds the turbo the other feeds the heater and returns to the crossover pipe. I want to block the coolant pipe to the heater as I am using the return port on the crossover pipe for a sender are there any problems blocking this pipe?.

Oil Dry Sump Goodness


This was from my thread.... I think this is what you want to do, I did it, no issues.


Below is a picture of the stock cooling circuits, the oil cooler is #8 in the picture. Notice that the LH side of the block, 12,13 & 14 do not have the oil cooler pass through. This is why I think I can just block them off?

To make it easier for you to see what I mean, this is what the coolant circuit will look like after the removal of the oil cooler and the blocking of the coolant passages.

Remember that I no longer have the stock oil cooler installed so this coolant passage really would just be a pass through IMO and does nothing?? Agree ??

If you want a clean way to block off that line, you can take a punch and remove the steel nipple that's pretted into the water pump housing. Then take a 1/2 NPT tap and insert a brass plug. This can be done without removing anything from the car.

Here's a picture.
