Spent the last couple days up to my armpits in coolant system, so I made up some simple diagrams for future reference.


Dont miss this diagram as well from Ford:

Drawing added showing SVT oil cooler. It probably doesnt matter if it goes in the heater supply or return line, I chose the supply for convenience and because in the winter time, this lineup should get the oil up to operating temp slightly faster. The important thing here is to run the cooler in series with the heater. Dont try to run it in parallel or you will have to consider flow balancing issues.

It replaces the green highlighted section. I had to cut the hose at the bottom; I think the SVT Contour had a 2-piece hose that just allow you to swap it straight. The Cougar hose is one piece. It's obvious where the cut needs to be made.
