New K20Z3 Upper Coolant Neck Adapter from HYBRID RACING

Preorders Only:
Guys, this is a product we were not planning to release until mid spring, when we get our new machine shop setup. However, we've been getting increased requests for them, so we've decided to offer the possibility of a group buy.

We have made these available on our site, here:
K20Z3 Upper Coolant Neck Adapter by Hybrid Racing (K-Series) | Hybrid Racing

If we get 20 preorders, we will run an early production batch. The delivery date would be about 4-6 weeks AFTER we reach the 20 unit preorder goal. We are making the cutoff date for the preorders January 1st, 2013. If we don't get 20 preorders by that point, we'll refund any open orders for them (or you can leave the order open for when these go into production when our machine shop is up and running mid-spring).


Anyhow, without further adieu:


Hybrid Racing K20Z3 upper coolant neck adapter was designed for 2006-2011 8th Gen Civics or K-Swap owners who need to modify or improve the function and form of their car’s cooling system. It boasts full 6061-T6 aluminum construction, lending it a strong and lightweight design along with a clean appearance that will put your OEM coolant housing to shame. The kit’s modular design allows the user to configure it to their exact setup.

The base kit includes the plate, radiator outlet and necessary plugs. (Price: $179.99)

Base Kit:

The additional fittings kit includes heater outlet fitting, stainless bracket, idle air control valve hose and nipple. (Price for Base Kit with Optional Fittings: $259.98)
Check out the features below!

Base Kit with Additional Fittings:

Reason 1: Eliminate The Cast OEM housing (8th Gen and K-Swap Chassis)

Do you need to make room for a new turbo kit? Want to clean up your bay for a clean tucked look? The HR coolant neck adds that final touch to your already tucked engine bay eliminating the large and bulky OEM housing while giving you extra room for activities.

Reason 2: Run AN Coolant Lines (8th Gen and K-Swap Chassis)

The use of AN and O-Ring Boss fittings for all connections allows you to use AN lines for your radiator, heater core, and throttle body if you wish. The -16 ORB port comes standard and we offer an optional custom radiator hose adapter designed to fit the stock or aftermarket silicone radiator hoses. If you’re running a custom radiator with AN ports, this kit makes it a breeze to attach your AN hose to the head with just a standard -16 AN/ORB union. A -10AN port for the heater core inlet allows the user to keep or block off the coolant supply line to the heater core. Also, an additional -8AN port allows the user to keep or block off the coolant supply to the throttle body. The standard kit comes with plugs for the -10AN and -8AN ports. If you wish to use the heater core or throttle body parts, we offer a convenient swivel fitting for the heater core and a custom made nipple for the throttle body.

Reason 3: Bleed Your Coolant System! (K-Swap Chassis)

One easily overlooked but amazingly useful feature on this kit is the bleeder port on the top of the unit. We designed a simple but very effective port. A few turns of an allen wrench opens the port and allows excess air to be bled from the coolant passages in the head. This is a great option on K-Swaps where the head is higher than the radiator, which can make proper coolant bleeding difficult. If you have a K-Swap you know how useful this can be!

Reason 4: Stop The Leaking (8th Gen and K-Swap Chassis)

One big problem we have seen plaguing aftermarket cooling system and fuel system components is leakage. Because many manufacturers choose to use NPT threads to create seals, customers are often stuck with parts that leak, even if it’s just the occasional drop. When we design parts, our goal is OEM reliability with increased performance. With that in mind, we use only AN and O-ring Boss connections on all components in our kit, to ensure leak-free use and easy installation.

Whether you’re looking to just clean up your engine bay or you need an easy way to block off your heater or run AN lines to you’re radiator, this coolant port adapter from Hybrid Racing has you covered!

MOAR PICS!

We'll see if we can snap some later this week or early next week. Unfortunately, we didn't install any prototypes on cars with photogenic engine bays. DOH!We've had quite a few of these units in use for around a year though, and they've stood the test of time quite well!

You have a great 06+ Si -AN fuel line kit for your fuel rail, now you need a
matching direct replacement -AN radiator hose kit for this great looking upper neck.
BTW Bleeding port is genius.

Hey guys. Sorry for the delay on installed pics. It's been difficult for me to get some good pics as most of the cars that have prototypes are either inaccessible or dirty. Anyhow, I realized I had a few pics of it from when I was working on the 8th Gen CAI install guide earlier this week.

They could be better, but it gives you an idea of fitment and how it cleans up the side of the head.




I'll see if I can get some better pics next week.

Right now we are offering a preorder group buy. If we don't get 20 buyers in, then we will refund the $ and production will wait until late spring/early summer. If we get 20 buyers, then we'll produce them in january. Right now, there are only 2 or 3 people in the group buy. I am not holding my breath. If you want yours, make sure to buy in and to spread the word!
