    Hey,

    I just swap a jdm integra type R engine in my 99 honda civic ex i kept the stock civic radiator, and it just keeps on overheating. I already changed out the thermostat and its still doing the same thing. there is no pressure in any of the lines. And i cant hear or see anything leaking out of the car. Pleas help me out im out of ideas.

    if there is no pressure in the water lines it has to be either the thermostat (which you have changed, did you put it in correctly) or water pump. I guess some engine importers shove socks, towels, rags and paper in the open places, you did pull those out right ?
