Those of you who are running the dsm thermostat housing are provided with an extra cap as well as an extra nipple for coolant overflow. My question is do you guys just cap off this extra overflow nipple or cap the one on the radiator?

Simple, get a non capped thermostat housing. Otherwise to answer your question, cap off the one that is at the lowest position.

^^^ What he said.

Someone post a link to thermostat outlets on ebay, a quick search will yield those results. Elantra parts are searchable for the same application too!
