Automatic radiators and Manual Radiators.

quick question.
what do you guys do when doing an auto to manual swap and wanna use the stock radiator.

the auto one has the oil line
but the manual doesnt

so what do u guys to the two holes that are left without a hose?
just leave it off? or do you loop it?

put rubber caps on them if you have a 5 spd car if it's auto then you need to hook up the oil cooler line from the tranny.

loop it with a small hose if ur worried. leaving it open is fine as well cuz it's not like it has any pressure to suck **** in.
