I was thinking about that the other day. I can't source one of those block off plates that aren't rusted to all hell. The metro hood also creates a BIG blockage for airflow to the top of the radiator. The swift has a nice grill for air to go through.

holy sheet, that would look sweet :lol: . I'll see what I can find that would fit it. And see what's workable. I don't exactly have a machine shop :)

GeoZuki, did you ever resolve this issue? I'd definitly be interested in finding out what it took to figure this out as I'm planning an overbored N/A build in the next few months. If there was something that should be taken care of while the engine is apart it would be awesome to know before dropping the engine into the car.

Thanks,
Bob

Its ok, a whole world of cooling problems he can't solve will kick him in the ass with his new setup :D

Yep, I solved it. It was a mildly blown headgasket :lol: . Just enough to blow compression into the cooling system at anything above 4000RPMs. The new turbo engine is gettin an o-ring job 8)
