Should see mid to low 14's if you don't screw the pooch when you launch.

What does the car need to be legal to run?

2 of the requirements I don't meet however they are easy fix one is to have all lug nuts which I have broken studs need to repose them no big deal lol and the other one is must have an overflow tank for coolant I don because the turbo took it's spot lol again should be easy fix am just too lazy. So for the launch any tips advice? Oh and can I use my washer fluid botle as my née overflow tank?

Yes, just be sure the hose goes to the bottom, so you don't suck air.

You really want an overflow, because I would bet you have a decent air pocket when the engine is cold. Air in the system degrades the coolant faster.

And be sure to either unplug the connector so you don't accidentally spray coolant on your windshield. It would prolly smear badly.

The spray nosels are not connected so all I have to do Is drain the washer fluid tank rinse it really good drill a hole on the lid and drop in the hose that goes to the radiator? Of course and fill it up with coolant. Do I need some type of respirator on the tank?so whenever the water boils it can leak from there and the tank won't explode?
