pop the cover and see if there's a small circuit on the proto area.

Just got home and water temps are still way to high imo. Cruising in the 205-210 range on an 80* day is to hot. Just picked up a 13 psi cap so when the car cool i'll put it on and check. Dosent look like I lost any fluid based on the level in the resivior.

Those temps are not "way too high". The engine is gonna run hotter than the thermostat temperature. Sounds normal to me.

I'd drive it for 20 minutes or so with the radiator cap loose so any air that's in the system can work itself out.

And do you have an A/C condenser?

Yes i do.

I just find it weird that my car ran much cooler than this b4 the rebuild and reroute. On cool days it would run at about 180 on the freeway.

What timing map are you running? Too little advance induces more heat into the cooling system.

Ah. Motors run hotter than normal when breaking in. Typically takes 2-5K miles before it will get down to "norm". So if it's under 5K, don't worry, just keep putting miles on it.

And damnit, POST your ******* timing map. Just because it's the same doesn't mean ****. Have you verified that the balancers TDC mark in indeed TDC?

lmao theres still time!!! You know, a simple cutout in the front bumper works wonders. At idle, my temps will settle at 180 and not go any further. On the highway, my temps will not go over 155 no matter how hard I drive the car. On the street my temps are at 160

I have the big ol' 12x18x3 intercooler mounted directly in front of my radiator with about 1/2 and inch between them and on the freeway with the 180* thermostat it sits at 180* on the dot so I can attest to the fact that you should not be experiencing a case of blocked flow to the radiator.

Was there ever a resolution on this temp issue? I'm interested because I'm experiencing higher temps since the outside temp has gone into the 70's. What use to be dead center or slightly to the left on the stock gauge is now hitting 3/4 on the right.
