PI water pump nipple?



Why do I need this? Can't I route it differently with the stock one? my buddy on his 98 gt did not need it with the 01 heads.. these pi heads arent Wins they are romeo and can reuse stock valve covers and such

getting the tube is a must, regular hose will not work. The nipples are different because the NPI uses hose and the PI uses a tube. It's only afew bucks, do it right.

Just find frank's thread....we went over everything we did during his swap.

it was discovered on modular depot that the 98 gt's had the pi waterpump nipple for one reason or another, but you will need to change it out. it only cost me about $3 and its the only way the pi coolant tube will fit right.

Honestly, your best bet is to remove the motor, put it on a stand, and do it out the car. Do front main, rear main, oil pan, timing cover, valve cover gaskets, valve cover gromets. Then put the heads on, on the stand, and drop that whole motor back in one shot. Everything was leaking on my car a little bit, I had 111k on it, better safe than sorry. When I got the FRPP set too, my oil dipstick tube didnt clear my headers, so it might not clear yours either. Save your stock dipstick tube, and swap o-rings if you have to. You will need all the chains, tensioners, guides. Off the top of my head I can't think of anything else, besides the obvious for the intake and above.

FRPP headswap kit doesnt come with any hose, it comes with:
Bolts, Head Gaskets, Exhaust Gaskets, New Oil Dipstick tube, and the six rubber pieces for the rear bolts, if you are doing the heads in the car. This is the part number: M-6067-D46 $99.00 From Dan...
