    WHAT IF: I had an air bubble in my coolant system

    I sent my TB out to be ported and polished by Mark Shaner, got the S3 and he did an awesome job! But i was just wondering if the air bubble from reconnecting the coolant lines is gonna cause a problem when i start the car?

    thanks

    It's a steam vent tube, so you won't have a problem.

    sweet!, what all is required for the TB coolant bypass, just a length of tube and two inline connectors? plus caps for the TB?

    Worth doing, Not so much in my opinion. But some are convinced it helps. I havent seen any gains over it, If you life in a climate where it gets chilly i would steer clear of it.

    Go ahead and do it (coolant bypass) since you already have it off, just did mine a couple of weeks ago can't say I can tell a difference but it can't hurt. You would probably have to live on the north pole before it would cause an issue.
