NH-503P-3 is cool... so far.
As long as it works John. Looks good to me.

I don't see why it wouldn't function correctly with the loop. There's no air in the cooling system, so the pump does all the work for moving the liquid around. As long as the cap is the highest point in the system so it can be easily filled and bled, you should be good.

Well... guess i didn't expect this. Trying to fill the car with coolant and I realized because of the upper rad hose loop the coolant will not flow into the block. The radiator is full but i have lots left to pour in. Usually I hear it filling the block. So my question to ya'l; will the pump suck the coolant through and force things to circulate?

Not if there is air trapped in the system. Have you tried squeezing the upper hose to try and get the coolant to move?

Cannot squeeze braided hose.

Ended up tilting the hose enough to get all of the coolant that came out of it into the system. But I will admit I have my concerns over the system being able to push the coolant through this loop when I put it back to dipping downwards. Anyone have any thoughts? What's the pressure here....

Gravity... she's a cruel mistress. I didn't even think of that.

Now that i think about this, i think I just created a way for air to not escape the head. Does air in the head of the block escape through the rad opening?

I know about the lower bleeder valve and I have coolant coming out of that. But after that the instructions say to leave the upper rad cap off to let air out. Is the air coming from the block ? If so... it's not going to make it with this hose. But I've seen others who use 90deg. angles....

Squeeze harder

The lower bleeder valve? Is that the one by the thermostat? If you have a steady stream of coolant coming out of that, then your block shouldn't have any air left which is good that means the pump impeller is submerged in coolant. There may be some air pockets left in the cylinder head that *should* get pushed out once you start the engine. I wouldn't worry about the loop as long as there isn't any large air bubbles in the system.

System pressure is determined by the rad cap. I haven't been through this thread in a while so I don't know if you are running a stock cap.

No stock cap, Mishimoto rad & cap. I've been reading for a couple hours if this is allowed or not. Everything I'm reading says the system will push the air through and to the rad cap opening where air will escape.
