@te72 cross post more probably autocorrect fail reference at that other thread about Retro Spec where I said I was ordering from them and I think you were the last to wish me luck. Here that's the result lol. They asked me if I had any use for it and I said no I don't think so. Now they are saying they will send me a return label and they have run of wiper cowls coming out of production soon. Who knows?Yep, I reckon you got the wrong part there my friend. Looks nice, but obviously not correct... so, totally on brand haha.
What do you mean by "cross post more"? I'm a bit behind the lingo at times haha.
Please, for the love of all that is holy, please please please replace that radiator hose yesterday. Figure out a time machine and go back and take care of that.
Heh... ouch. I think this concise post tells us everything we need to know, eh?
Check your PMs and let me know how much we're talking about. I just put the car away in storage for the winter so there's no hurry.
I just don’t feel motivated to drain the cooling system for 4th time this year right now, lower radiator hose totes important tho, will get to itDon't worry about motivation to replace the lower rad hose, when it fails you'll be plenty motivated!
On the oil cooler, I routed mine with the inlet and outlet facing upward, to prevent air bubbles from being a possibility. Haven't seen a stock oil cooler in some time, so not sure if this is possible or not with that one.
As far as your upgraded coolant catch can, please tell me that isn't a used bottle of Royal Purple... coolant and oil mixed form a rather nasty acid. Granted, it shouldn't eat through the bottle, but if such an acid were pulled into your cooling system, it might cause some damage.
I don’t think I’ve run it under any boost situation without any hoses especially PCV connected properly but blowing out seals sounds right up my alley considering how I’ve minorly abused this motor. It’s been fun so far thoughOh, all the oil seals can eventually drip out that weep hole. I'd pry the top cover off and make sure it's not getting on the timing belt and wizzing around everywhere.
Also with more boost ....and the pcv venting hoses not right you can pop out the front main and or oil pump seals. Ask me how I know hahah
@Captain do you mind expounding on this subject perhaps with links. The connectors I ordered from corsa are not correct because I wasn’t paying attention. I seem to be able to locate 2-pin sumitomo MT-09(0) connectors mostly, not 4 pin 😔That line runs to the metal vacuum line boondoggle under the intake manifold (red circle) and ultimately connects to the elbow on the front of the intake manifold (blue circle). It's also the proper place to attach the BOV vacuum line to.

Can be fixed by adding a small shim to the internal BOV spring, or properly fixed by installing the recirculating fitting. I've done both, and with the shimming you have to be careful no to shim too much.
It's the connector for the coil packs and CPS.
I have the Toyota and Sumitomo part numbers for that connector at home, but they use the same exact terminals as every other MT 090 series sealed connector.
The keying on the standard 4p connectors is different than the keying on the CPS/coil pack connectors. Found that one out the hard way. Compare the center key to the one pham posted.
The standard 4p:
^^^^^ This is correct, the way you have it mounted currently may result in an air pocket forming at the top of the cooler, blocking one or more oil passages. Typically you want both inlet and outlet on top or the inlet on the bottom if vertically mounted.On the oil cooler, I routed mine with the inlet and outlet facing upward, to prevent air bubbles from being a possibility. Haven't seen a stock oil cooler in some time, so not sure if this is possible or not with that one.
There also appears to be a decent amount of leakage from above too, likely the cam covers or cam seals.pretty sure front main is leaking
Sumitomo part number for the female housing is 6180-4593, good luck finding it though. At this point any of those on the market are going to be aftermarket (read: chinese copies) and not have the same fit as OEM. The center tab design on the aftermarket connectors is a bit different than OEM and has some slop to it when connected to an OEM connector.do you mind expounding on this subject perhaps with links. The connectors I ordered from corsa are not correct because I wasn’t paying attention. I seem to be able to locate 2-pin sumitomo MT-09(0) connectors mostly, not 4 pin
Sumitomo says 6180-4771 is a female 6 pin connector and 6188-0004 is a 4 pin male, but not the 4 pin male you have.edit: maybe. 4 Pin 6180-4771 6188-0004 MT090
