It is fun seeing it go the other way, though.

Stein will back me up, you guys have a long ways to go before you compete with my local forum.
The truth is that its nothing like that. This forum is actually really mild compared to some of the others I frequent as well. It takes a special kind of retard to do bad here, I mean you either really have to try or just be THAT dumb and ignorant.

So yeah....This is a nice forum full of cat owning hairdressers

Actually really good. It has no drivability problems or cold start issues. More than I can say for my RX7. I guess thats to be expected with a big cam in a 13.5:1 motor.

I do need to find a leak in the clutch line and a boost leak. It started dropping to 6psi at high rpms. I know, its only like 5 minutes to build a tester ive just been busy as hell lately.

it was done for americruise(about 1am sunday morning) so I really only got to participate in the street racing.

also, is anyone else not running fans? I didnt install fans after I replaced the stock radiator with an all aluminum unit years ago and it rarely ever gets to the halfway point on the gauge ever since.

IIRC, the gauge is a dumb gauge. I wouldn't trust it. Plus, no reason not to run the fans. MS will control it.

Geek didnt have any heat complaints while we were driving thru lincoln and doing back to back pulls out on west O. The MS should show accurate.

On the highway or at speeds above 40mph, no need for fans ever. Stop and go traffic, or doing some boosted pulls then idling then more boosted pulls, etc. You need fans. However you are running a cooler fuel (e85), so it may be less of an issue.
