Why? If you set it to the proper temp in the tune then you dont even have to think about it.

I'm starting to work on mine, but can't do the second half to exit out the hood until the engine swap happens.

Here is my template and the finished product will be posted on this thread, but how I got there will only be on my thread (link in my signature)
