If Iím not mistaken , marina gas is still ethanol free 🤷‍♂️
Donít mind some ethanol in my premium gas while Iím driving the car in the spring / summer, however have always run a tank of Shell 91 V plus (which was ethanol free) but is no longer . Would fill up the tank with this ethanol free gas for winter storeage .
Gonna be checking out Marina gas very shortly

Hereís a link that lists all the different sizes of vacuum hoses needed for our cars.
Youíll have to scroll down quite a ways to find the list but itís quite extensive

Re-clocking the turbo should help however you might also want to consider installing an offset silicon hose.
They even have reducing offset hoses if itís needed for 3 different sized hoses in your case.

Iíve drained some fluid outta the rad via the petcock & removed the upper hose connection at the radiator .
Will attempt to use my vacuum pump to drain inside the rigid upper hose before removing at the intake .
Am expecting a ďgushĒ of coolant outta the manifold once I remove the thermostat .
Will have a bunch of rags stuffed around it and some drain pans under the car to catch what drips down .

Thanks for your suggestions Scooby & David 👍

Any suggestions on the best way to change thermostat with the least amount of coolant spillage?

Iíve got to change out my T-stat & am running GN1ís aluminum upper coolant pipe in lieu of a flexible rad hose so itís a bit trickier.
Any suggestions to minimize spilled coolant would be greatly appreciated
