Entire cooling system?? Don't want to upset you, but...
You'll be surprised, but you also need:
-valley pan 99.9% leaking from the rear of the engine (I found small leak on my car)
- rear passage cover (not sure if mine has it, bc valley pan could cause that leak to.
- coolant pipe seals (most likely you can see wheep hole leak but not always)
Replacing a heater core is a real PITA!
