woah that's crazy! i've never seen something like that.

i just bought some pipe fittings with the same diameter and thread pattern. bought one elbow and one tee, then got some high pressure high temp hose and routed it to the stock location on the coolant tank...but that's one heck of a way to do it!

Did you drill & tap the water pump outlet for the steam tube?

Bluehellfire666.... Can you please post pictures of what you did for the steam tube if you have any??

I need to start thinking about the steam tube lines and I have no idea what I'm doing... LOL

Oh, I think I already have that tube on the engine. The tube I have is metal... So all I need to do is figure out how to run it into the porsche coolant resorvoir?

My plan is to run it to the small port on the radiator that connects to the radiator cap line.

I had to buy a new radiator... This is the one I bought (summit 380645)... I know it needs to be modified a bit...

Can someone help me out here?? I think I need to modify / change the following:
1. Cut off rad cap and weld a plate over
2. add a line for the coolant resorvoir
3. add a line for the steam tube??

bluehellfire666... How did you run your coolant lines? How did you incorporate the steam tube and coolant tank?

i'm using the stock 944 radiator...want to upgrade to something a bit bigger soon, maybe just a turbo radiator we'll see. i left the main hose that goes from the coolant reservoir to the radiator alone, except i cut and tee'd in the return hose for the heater core. I found two premade rubber coolant hoses that were very close to the dimensions i needed to go from the return on drivers side of radiator to the return snout of the water pump...then found one that was very close to what i needed to go from water pump neck to the bottom radiator snout. There was also a small hose/snout near the drivers side main return line that i capped off, i don't remember what went there originally.

I'm thinking I can use these tee's to incorporate the steam tube and Porsche coolant tank... Has anyone used these before?
