Just wondering what you guys did/used to cap these? I used vacuum plugs from autozone and such and they've been failing( yes I know they're for vacuum)

I was thinking to use a short hose plus some sort of bolt and hose clamp if you understand what I'm saying.

Ideas/ tips are appreciated

It does work. Been running it for months. Issue is the caps/plugs I used to cap them keep deteriorating since they're not made for high temp I'm guessing

Because its not meant to be capped. You have tons of heat and pressure, temp cycling etc etc.

by that statement, wouldn't that mean they aren't working?

yes, you can try a hose and a bolt with a clamp as well. Just plan on redoing it too down the road. Or, get the right pump for the application and you won't have to rig it together

I've read threads all saying " cap the outlet" on the waterpump for n/a turbo setups. Didn't realize they're prone to failing every so often.
