Well the pipe tap was to tap threads into the hole you drilled so you could insert the fitting. In the end it didn't work, we had to have it welded, but the threads helped hold it in.

The tap is kinda expensive and I would skip attempting to tap it and go straight to welding it in. There is too little material to successfully tap it IMO. Blown go almost all the fittings from the Parker Store.

How likely are these to come out when removing the cores?

Sorry for all the questions...
They are used to seal the cores preventing the coolant from entering in the intake manifold and going into your engine.

The both washers go on the end of the core, the large one closest to the fins, then the smaller one, and lastly the o-ring.

^^^ Looks great so far. Can you tell us where you got the parts from, how much, and the part numbers? I plan on doing this myself very soon.

That is the exact fitting Blown 4-banger has. Be sure to drill at an angle other wise the fitting will hit the oil canister. Look at this as a reference.

Click on the image in your vBgarage and it will open a window with a larger image. Right click and get the properties from the larger image.

No, I didn't cut any threads off. I worked it in until it got in pretty far.

Yeah, it was, that was the pilot hole for the big 1/2" bit.
EDIT* Don't forget to use a wire brush or something to take the anodizing off the fitting, other wise the weld won't seal properly

I just finished the dualpass endplate and the extra coolant bottle. I used the Ion Redline's stock coolant bottle and put it on the passenger side and made a couple simple brakets to hold it there on the stock studs that stick up there. Haven't been able to see the difference yet on IATs.... Too much damn snow

Didn't see this post. That seems a little hot to me, with water/meth AND the dual pass thats really hot! At idle mines like 85 tops, cruisin 40 its like 65-70, and a 0-142 mph run is like 167 for me!!! I think you might have air bubbles in your system cause somethings not right.
