I deleted my cooleron my 2010 this week end I ran a hose from a plug with barbed end that goes into stand pipe the the otherend is attached to the fitting that was sticking out of the head is that right to use the stock plug in head or change to a different plug in head? Before attaching hose to stock plug in head I did remove the oring that was on it.

I used the stock fitting and removed the o-ring like you did and I haven't had any problems.

Dumb question but how tight did you tighten your hose clamp I used a nut driver and tightened as tight as I could.

A nut driver. I put the hose clamp below the ribbed part of the fitting.

I removed the o ring and tightened the hose clamp with nut driver also. I used the sinister cooler delete and other than the trans dipstick support bracket that didn't fit the kit was good. No leaks after 1 1/2 yrs

same here, i had to redo my hose when i installed the wastegate kit, i came up with a loop that clears everything that is hot. i used the stock fitting with the oring removed, and put the clamp below where the oring sits, and i have never had a issue with a leak yet.

you could run the glacier diesel hose too and it cleans it up nice, i ran it back into the head for the circulation factor
