The 4K/Coupe has a different set up than the 80/90. While the 4K/Coupe
controls the heat by varying the amount of heated coolant through
the heater core (via the heater valve), the 80/90 does so by mixing
varying amounts of heated vs. unheated air entering the cabin (via
flaps). As I understand it, on the 80/90 the heater core gets
coolant flow at all times.
