This is how I did it on the ek swap I am currently doing.Before,I have used the hasport adaptor,and I have even built a similar adaptor from copper plumbing pipe...but decided to try this out.

Couldnt find any 3/8" male to 1/8 female adaptors at any of the four places I tried,so I used a 3/8" male to 1/4" female..than a 1/4" male to 1/8" female.Still about an inch shorter than the factory piece it replaces.The threads are standard pipe threads,so everything went together with no problem.

Without using the Hasport adapter, where are you mounting the thermoswitch? Just curious...

If you use an rsx radiator isn't the thermoswitch in it?
Yes, and just an FYI: The D/B series thermo switch will also work in an RSX radiator.

Right now i have the temp sensor mounted in the Hasport adapter and the thermo switch mounted on the radiator. Both are from a D series.

Picked them up from a parts store(Pepboys).Tried home depot and lowes,but could find anything small enough or the right thread pitch.

Cost about $5 for both fittings.

This car is using the stock ek radiator for now.I am trying something now for the thermoswitch.If it works,I'll post up pics.

I've seen the pics of the temp sensor, but where does the fan switch mount?

Those double pepboys fittings dosent seem like water will touch it. Summit parts.

Plenty of fluid gets to the temp sensor.I have tested it on the swap I just finished.Works perfectly.

I wouldve went with the summit fitting,but didnt know part number,and did not have time to wait for shipping.

BTW man..you (or whoever took the pics) cut down that fitting.The blue fitting is exactly the same height as the pepboys lower fitting.The added height is from the 2nd fitting.

Thanks for the part number though man.I should be getting a mass quantity of those in stock sometime soon.
