The upper part of the lower hose is just a cover because of that stupid plastic housing. I'm eventually either going to find a housing that will bolt to this engine, or have one made.

I haven't seen a Z31 in sometime, but I did check a D22 and it doesn't appear to fit.

Check out KTuned's K series billet thermostat housing. It's a long shot but you never know. . .

Drove the car out of the garage today for the first time. Gave it a bath for the first time in two years. Now it's headed to work for exhaust, alignment, and ac refrigerant. More detailed pictures and hopefully a better movie are forthcoming.

Yes, and the interior as well. I spent extra on parts and in time making sure all the factory gauges work. I also drilled and tapped the factory shift **** to go onto the new shift lever. I'll get some pics of the exhaust soon, but I brought it out the factory location, with a subtle muffler and no tip. If you didn't know the car didn't come with a 3" exhaust, you'd never look at it otherwise, well, until I rev it up.
