I bought the Ford 19x22 crossflow from KMJ. That will open up some space where I'll drop in an oil cooler next to the rad. I had a double pass cross flow and it worked very well.

I have yet to install the single pass. But based on the double pass I was using, I figured this would be more than adequate. I never got the dubl on track, but I had it out in hottest part of a southern summer day (high 90s) after numerous consecutive boosted runs and then drove a good 15 minutes in stop-n-go traffic and it never got hot. AAMoF the fan only came on when the car was stopped and didn't run that long. I did have a large spal 2700cfm fan and an extractor hole in the hood which I'm sure helped.

thats a great tip there. Saving replays after races is a good thing.

The matches look vintage...you may be able to pawn them for said lighter.

Now THAT is a workbench.

I bet those pedals would work in the Miata with some help from the green hose.

I'm such a traditions breaker. Here is what I use to fill the connectors with hot glue and make it a little more robust.



Notice the (500W) in there. That means that it is dispensing hot glue in about a minute. And continues to do so non-stop (or until the stick is gone or you get blisters on your fingertip). Full of win.
