Looks like the bypass mod has been done, other wise ther would be two rubber hoses attached to those connections. Sounds like air in the system and possible clogged rad, taka a hose a carefully back wash the fins and check to make sure you don't have a build up of debris between the ac condensor and rad.
An easy way I ahve heard of bleeding teh system is to take teh rad cap off (when cold) then run the engine till the stat opens and shut it down, add ing coolant when it cools and the water elvel drops.

My Heater core had a leak last week and i got it replaced,
also flushed the coolant last night and replaced radiator cap.
I THINK there is possably a air pocket in the cooling system.
What is the point of the coolant bypass mod any way?
Wouldn't it be cold fluid running through the TB?
Making the air denser?

nope, its hot coolant running through there, as the lines that are connected to it are also known as steam lines, venting any steam along with hot coolant. Its to keep teh Tb from iceing up in extream cold.
The Tb bypass takes the TB out of that loop, removing the heat and keeping the incoming air cooler.

Make sure there is no obstruction to the radiator ie. plastic bag stuck on it or debris in the fins.
Air dam must also be installed on these cars
For what it's worth.....the bypass mod is a crock IMO.

Also make sure the factory airdam is still under the car (black bottom scraper) because it pushes the air to the radiator or you will overheat while driving.

yes.......on the right side of the TB disconnect the hose that runs to the TB ......or in you have had the TB mod....to the radiator......when its disconnected fill the rad up until coolant comes out of the pipe......reconnect line......continue to fill rad.....when topped off.......start engine and run heater full blast .......leave rad cap off and top off as needed til it gets hot enuff to overflow....DONE......if this dont get the air out recheck the stat........i did the bypass mod......no problems here
