Default TB Bypass

I have the necessary parts just wondering which tubes to connect. I did this mod to my Camaro SS and I'm assuming its the same. Having a hard time locating the tubes. Does anyone have pictures of an install?

It's the hoses that connect to the TB.

Just put in the bypass as fast as you can, clean up the mess and check the coolant level.

The coolant wasn't coming from the hose. It was coming from somewhere else below the TB.

It would have to be where you pulled the hose off of. Have you found both hoses that go into the TB? I would find both of them first and then oull them off and connect them with the bypass coupler.

Trick is to pull the one coming from the radiator first, then hold it up in the air so it won't leak (tie with string or something. Then get the bottom one off and start your connections. Put in some rags or something to keep coolant off the belt.

Keeps the intake air cooler by not being heated up by the hot coolant being pumped through the TB.
