I want to do it all again though, with a new tester (this one day in my trunk for a while), universally tightness, and no darkness/mosquitos passing me off.

I had to change my GM temp sensor that day and my coolant temp sensor too, but my coolant gauge in my cluster still wants to be on the downs.

Time for aftermarket 40mm?

But first things first, ignition issue needs solved. Or may be going back to stock coils for the time

Really?
Yeah mine seems picky and choosy when it wants to work.
Most the time it's when engine is off, as soon as I start it it just plummet so I think its due from the vibration messing with the wires or something. Is funny sometimes it's in between working and not and goes crazy.

But I actually lied.
My main concern at this point is overheating, I need a ballsy radiator now, I have fans and going to get shroud fabbed up.

Also thinking about ducting the 2 smaller holes in my bumper to the radiator to bypass my massive intercooler

I pulled on the wire on the harness side and found it pulled out, then I unwrapped the harness until I found the other end and connected it back together.

Yeah, noo. It's 93 out right now
I hear a 40mm gauge fits in there. And from what I remember the begi coolant reroute adapter has plugged sensor ports

Or if one is purely looking for rust-protection, Cerakote is a great option. Cheaper than Swain and super durable, you just won't get much (if any) thermal benefits.

I ended up putting a VDO gauge in my cluster. And during the install is when I found that the wire was broken and not that the gauge was borked.

Dat weld for the rad neck. I would say it looks exactly like the ebay one except for that ugly *** weld. Just offer $110 and free shipping on a godspeed one on ebay.

I mean its got more thermal mass than stock but thats about it. I'm not convinced the ebay rads are actually any better at cooling than stock.

You can fix that enough with one of the slim fans from silicone intakes.

I'm not on a budget. I want a ballsy radiator. But 400 is pushing it for a radiator even though they are 600 new.
I might as well find a place to buy the core. Everything else on my car is custom welded so far.
Anyone know any place for quality cores?

Yeah, I got 2 slim fans already. I should mount them to the stock rad for now but just seems like a waste.


My gauge decides to work when I turn off the car usually. So sick of not being able to go more than a 5mi radius.
