helloo all, after 4 days of having x16xe power, I can safely say I'm very happy with the corsa now

Couple of little things though, I dont think I have the coolant hoses on correctly, as whenever I pu tthe cap on the expanson bottle a mental amount of pressure is created in the little pipes going back into the exp. bottle? causes the small pipe ends to pish coolant everywhere

Other than this Im a happy bunny

Right...I have the following at mo:

>>From by oil filler cap to left of radiator
>>from right of radiator to large black plastic one...kinda under where Dis pack thing is
>>top right of radiator to a t-piece, then into expansion tank
>>Piece t'd off the above goes down behind engine...by where the plastic inlet is
>>And the last hose goes from the aforementioned large black plastic piping to the underneath of expansion tank

is something wrong? have to run it without coolant cap on as it starts blowing by where the hoses are T-d, the coolant starts boiling out after about 98

head gasket is fine too

not sure about these T peices your talking about.............do they have hose clips on them???

and mine overflows if you leave the cap off, i think its because the fan cuts in or something

if you screw the cap on then und do like 20 seconds later is there alot of pressure?

yes, a lot of pressure
What I meant was...your header tank has 2 inlets by th ecap, mine has one, and the other pipe is T'd into it....if u get me?
My mate thnks I've got one of the pipes going to the wrong place..I'm beginning to think that too, havent a clue whats wrong though

There is only 1 small(ish) pipe going from top corner of rad, by the PAS bottle?

Aaaahhh I just noticed something you put in your previous post..The pipe on the left of the coolant bottle goes to the throttle body?? As in behind where the throttle cable connects on the engine?

in goes into the throttle body, the the other pipe coming out of the throttle body goes to the big pipe at the back of the engine (which comes from the water pump)

Had a look at it tonight, had the inlet off and followed all the coolant pipes to the ends, and its all plumbed up correctly

I poured coolant in, put the cap on, annnd its pressurising ok now i think

cheers warren

final things to do now are
-bolt in passenger harnesses
-drill out broken bolt in downpipe & fit new
-A nice Scorpion imola backbox
-A bigger air filter (Pipercross or equivalent)
