    New here and need help??

    Hello I just bought a 2002 Z28 damaged in the front. The problem im having is that i put a radiator in the car that doesn't have a spot for the small rad line that goes into the throtle, im just wondering what i could do with that line. Could i just plug it or what?? Just wondering if anyone could lead me in the right direction.

    You can leave it alone and plug Im pretty sure. Most people here do, its called a throttle body bypass. Look that up theres alot of threads about it.

    i read the bypass how to thing but the only difference is that my car doesn't have the hose coming out of the radiator. i have the hose on the left side of the throtle body just sitting there with nothing to hook to, should i just take the hose off and plug the hole?

    where is prince edward island? If it gets very cold there during the winter you may want to keep that line going to the throttle body.

    For me to drive to toronto it would probably take about 16-17 hours, if that tells you anything. what do you mean no visa.
