The heater hose from the top of KAT heater can is now Y'ed into the hose running from the Thermostat to the intake manifold.

The heater can input hose is now coming from a "T" in the lower radiator hose at a point just at the base of the battery.

End result is everything is now working correctly, coolant in now flowing in only one direction!

Using a timer both at home and at the office, the car is at full operating temperature at time of departure.

The old in line KAT heater just kept things "warm"

I can report an approx 3 mpg increase in fuel mileage from the first two tanks of gas.

(now approx 9.3 gallons for 550 miles)
