A good Rad/cooling system flush will help the temps. Besides if its more serious the Rad shop can disassemble and really clean the rad if needed.

A reason for cooler while on freeway is a bunch more airflow through the Rad. I am in Reno and we have a bunch of days in the 10F and below. I have no prob with a 180deg thermo.

Dont buy the cheap one, spend the few xtra bucks and get the good one

That'* not the GOOD one. Go to www.INTENSE-racing.com and get the good one. It outlflows the STANT by a good margin.

I saw that one and the id of the opening is the same as the stant.

I would say its "good" but im sure there may be some better.

No, it'* not. You have to look and measure carefully. Side by side.

I have, as well as testing them when open. Stant on the left, INTENSE on the right:

Name:  extreme6.jpg

When you have them side by side in your hand (as I do right now) the difference is obvious.

The Stant has an open diameter of 1.11", the INTENSE is 1.21". This resoves to an area of .96769" for the Stant and 1.1499 square inches for the INTENSE.

This is an 18.8% difference in flow.

I stand corrected.

(.1 may be obvious to you but im old and to my eyes its close. Especially since the one Intense uses to compare against in its pict is MUCH smaller)

PS Will: a big thanks for the pict, it sure is handy to have someone with ur experience to point out this stuff..

Did you happen to top off your coolant with the "other color" than you had originally?

BTW.. I can't see oil getting pushed into the coolant. In the heads, the oil is not pressurized and the coolant is ~16lbs. Coolant would go into oil..not the other way around.

The dealer will refuse the installation and feed you a line of BS. Plan on doing it afterwards.

sorry to dig this up, but i took it to the dealer today, and he believed the coolant looked more red than it should, so he believed that somehow there might have been transmission fluid in the coolant...Is this possible, since I thought that the lines for the transmission cooler and radiator were completely different lines
