Im thinking the coolant would get caught up in the back of the heads and not be circulating properly causing hot spots, cavitation and air locks would also be on the cards i think.
If i cant do something with this paperweight i guess ill have to find another :roll:

I'm currently bidding on a full AU intake package at the moment in NZ mate, if i get it cheap enough i'll do you a good deal on the upper/lower, as i'm just after the other parts that come with it.


Why the hell would someone weld up the holes?? Thats the most idiotic thing i've ever seen. That would be like welding up the doors sso you can't get in. :shock:

Im pretty sure those holes dont circulate through the manifold anyway.
I think they are pretty much just dead ends, they go in about an inch and just stop.
Im probably wrong, but its just hunch. I'll go out and check out the explorer i've got in the shed and report back later.

Dude i have got my fingers crossed real bad, i have checked the manifold at the back to see where the ports could go through but the chamber for the pvc is there and doesnt seem to be much room.
:shock:

As i said in my text Shannon, i have good news.
Just went and took a couple pics of the Explorer i have in the shed which is off an EL XR8 185kw.
Looks to me like the two "blanked off" ports you have in yours isnt going to be a drama.
As you can see one just supplies coolant to the EGR spacer which im guessing you wont be running anyway.
And the other is basically just a dead end with a plug in it, where i suppose you could have put a temp sender or something into.

Anyway, heres the pics.

This is the passenger side, with the supply to EGR spacer.

This is the drivers side, with the blanking plug.

And this is the outside to show the plugs/fittings etc.

If it was the front two ports then you would be worrid as that is a channel right through to the thermostat.

Hope that puts your mind at ease Shan.
