Where does the return hose go to? I have a tbi chevy in my Jeep and I just used a brass plug to block off that hose port, but when I want to make my heater work again where do I hook the return to? There was only one port on the manifold....

Does it go to a different thermostat housing or right to the radiator?

Strangler: I think on my TBI motor there was one connected to the intake and one connected to the water pump..

given the application the return from the heater can go into the radiator tank or in the water pump intake fitting. kind depends on the set up you have. you can't route out of the rear of the itake and then back in the front, it won't circulate.
