IAC/ Fast Idle Valve bypass Question

Sup guys, i've read the How To: on prelude online already, but i'm a little confused please corrct me if i'm wrong.

There's the Fast Idle Valve which is located under the throttle body ( by the Air intake tube), and then there's the IAC (which if right on the TB.)

The coolant goes out of the engine block, into the IAC, then in the Fast Idle Valve, and Back in block.

So I reroute the coolant line to stay in the engine block right?

DO i block off the two nipples of the IAC since they wont be linked to anything anymore? And to block off the IAC can i just link the two Nipples of the IAC with a tube?

And for the Fast Idle Valve can I link the two nipples with a tube also or do i live the nipples open?

So no air would go in either the IAC, and Fast Idle Valve?

Thanks Guys I just wanted to be sure.

Your preventing coolant from reaching those, not air. Just stick a gasket in between the FIV.

ooooo thanx man, the IAc nipples can be left open then

wouldn't just blocking the two nipples of the FIV be the same? or the gasket is best way to go?
I would block them by linking them with a tube.

Thanks alot bro
