We merely need to sit back and await our Canadian members to chime in.

I'm pretty sure Matt had one redone. Sounded like a cheap thing to have done w/o you getting dirty.

I have one on my car but never used it, even at -30* or so there'* no trouble starting the car.

But I have blown out 2 of them

On both occaisions I was tuning the car, at the time I was at WOT on the highway. It doesn't take long to loose most of the coolant in those situations, unfortunately there was so much coolant everywhere causing me to throw my 8 rib supercharger belt...in fact that was the first indication of trouble.

That said, the one in there now has gone through plently of abuse and a complete winter and still made it through.

Cheers,

Most Canadian cars have them installed at the dealer...however Cheetahs car came from the US where they aren't as common.

Cheetah'* car is from GA to be specific. Bill that is a good point. I was reading what Foghorn had to say and after reading that, I might reconsider; being that I really do not see me pulling out the heater for the summertime so I can make full use of the throttle. As for wjcollier07 I believe is John, I will be up here for 4 years. Anything you want sent to you???
