I have Integra with k20a2 I kept the heater. Having some issues though.
The issue is the metal heater pipe and all the small 5/16 hose barbs not being used.
I removed all the barbs from the upper radiator hose neck with pliers then drilled them taped.
Used an Allen head plug with hondabond.
The metal heater pipe hose barb located right below cam sensors see picture below.
I had a hose on it with a clamp and it needed to go looked half***. Plus didn't matter how tight the clamp was it just leaked. I'd like to delete it plug it and seal it off for good.
Now before anyone mentions just cut it off and weld it shut. Well, I don't own a welder and my welds would leak.
As for friends who can weld they cant weld either at least good enough for it to look decent let alone be sealed.
What do I do with the metal heater pipe barb below the cam sensors?
Can I cut it down smaller and tap it and jam a set screw in it, maybe a bolt with some PTFE thread sealant.
Adding a rubber cap plug with clamp works but they dry rot quick.
Open to suggestions for cant weld or no anyone who can near me least so it's sealed.
Anyone else running a swap with the heater still installed and working?
