    I have some questions on my b16a3 swap into my crx

    1. where the lower radiator hose goes into the back of the block what is that brown plug? do I need that hooked up?

    2. my heater is blowing colder than when I had the sohc and I was wondering if that was normal after you do a b16 swap?

    3. I have been checking a coolant level everyday and I have to top of the radiator every day, I am thinking its air bubble in the system that they did get out when the swap was done, I can see any leaks, what do you guys think?

    1) Thermoswitch or ECT (don't remember which is brown)...yes

    2) Blowing colder as in not heating the air in you cabin well?

    3) Did you bleed the system?
