You *really* need to get a Bentley for both a Corrado AND a Cabriolet. For the most part, they're the same on both cars, but some differences.

Right one is the coolant port for the head. Goes to the heater core (feed line, IIRC). Left one is the coolant hose going to the overflow tank (if you have one).

The other hose going to the heater core (return, IIRC)

Top: Not a hose at all. Idle adjustment screw
Middle: Not a hose at all. Bearing/pivot for the boost bypass valve.
Bottom: Don't remember. Probably emissions or something. I have it capped off on my Scirocco...

The coolant flange on the right, you want to replace with the one that came stock on your rabbits motor. The metal pipe on the left you want to replace with the one that came stock on your rabbits motor. then you hook them up to each other and to the heater core.

Unless you like driving with the heat on 24/7 to keep from overheating.

Ok, if you have no heat or heater core, just connect the side flange to the metal pipe.
