: installing heat xchanger and pump tmrrw

06-07-13, 10:42 AM
but need to know the size of the coolant lines ASAP. have to buy the fittings to make sure i have everythign lined up and dont have to mess around with leaving to buy stuff.

06-07-13, 11:12 AM
I would run 3/4" lines wherever possible.

06-07-13, 11:14 AM
I used 3/4" Goodyear hose and Aeroquip and Spectre fittings.

Did you get Tim's front mount?

06-07-13, 11:30 AM
i did get tims. so i should rerun all the lines and stuff? i dont think i have time to order all that before tmrrw. i need the fittings for the pump, didndt come with any.

If you got the Jabsco then go to Home Depot or Lowe's and get NPT to Hose barb fittings. Take your pump and test thread them in to be sure.

i got a miezere pump. are those the fittings i need and not the AN things? i bought the AN fittings and wouldnt mind returning and getting the 70 back i spent on them. lol

The fittings for the Meziere you probably won't find locally. I had to order them for mine.

06-07-13, 06:52 PM
Yeah the Meziere ones you can't get local.

06-07-13, 07:24 PM
lucky for me I did manage to find them. there a few local performance shops that stock AN fittings, thank god. lol. we got it worked out, just took a few long drives and some creative processing. but they all agree it should work with no issues.

I also purchased Tim's exchanger - it would be great if you could post a write up on removing the front end and the install.

06-09-13, 06:55 PM
So how did it turn out? Iv had mine done but haven't uploaded the pics yet. I will tonight.

heat xchanger made a HUGE difference!! beat cars that were putting 4ish cars on me after just installing the xchanger. the pump DOES NOT fit, DO NOT BUY THIS PUMP!!! but even without it, its a huge difference. here is quick rundown for you jb_v.

open hood, remove screw pins that hold the engine covers on, remove the annoying pins that hold bumper on across the top of the support as well.
turn wheel all the way one direction, remove the annoying pins that hold the FRONT portion of the inner wheel well on. once that is removed you will expose the nut by the side marker, remove that from both sides. remove the annoying pins from teh bottom of the bumper and its off. disconnect the fog lights, and the head light washer hose. that will leak out, we took a latex glove, cut the finger out and zip tied it to the nipple to stop the leaking out. you MUST remove the lower hood latch supports, the rest is fairly straight forward. wait until all bolts and connectors are installed before tighening one, the fit of mine wasnt exact and it had to be removed and had to bend some tabs to make it work. that should get you there Jb_V

Awesome and thanks! I should be getting it later this week. I'll keep everyone posted given I'm giving nitrous a try.


06-10-13, 07:03 PM

My heat exchanger install went great. No issues.

06-10-13, 08:24 PM
it wasnt a nightmare, but had to remove things i didnt think you would have to. the nightmare was the damned pump. screw that thing.

06-10-13, 08:52 PM

06-10-13, 11:47 PM

An easy way is to e-mail them to yourself from the phone if you can't transfer them by conecting the phone to your comp... Just email them, save them to the comp, then resize them for the tiny little photos limits required for the forum, then put them up so we can all see you new upgrade.

06-12-13, 12:44 AM
Or you can upload them to tinypic.com and post the pics in the thread. No account needed.

sry the pix haven't been a priority. I am uploading to comp now and will post them up shortly.

Hey guys, i'm a newbie at the sts v performance game. Only mods are the spectra stage two intake, magnaflow x pipe and mufflers. I emailed timmy c about the heat exchanger but no response. Anybody got a number for him? My name is andre and my # is 443 790 6022. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

07-06-13, 03:54 AM
He will get with you I'm sure.

07-06-13, 09:56 AM
I got the email and replied 20 minutes later. I have not heard back so I'm not sure it went through.
