2) coolant temps are killing me. The new fan with a functioning high speed made it better but still runs too warm for my liking and I really dont know what the answer is at this point but it seems like its gonna be a couple hundred bucks anyway. Im gonna swap in a 160 thermostat, thin out the coolant mix with more water (dont need much freeze protection here in FL) and add some water wetter. I would like the car to run around 210-215 max w/ AC on full tilt and its 95-100 out every day.
if that stuff doesnt do it my options appear to be dual high flow fans and build brackets or something like the Mark VIII fan or possibly an upgraded intercooler that doesnt have the huge ass top and bottom end tanks blocking a large portion of the radiator
