Default I might be

yardin' out my p22560r16 Blizacs here soon for the bonny (came with first Bonneville), I might drive it this winter..because..i cant get enough of it...lol
And well, its going to snow before the end of September. And if my tranny is in deed going, let it go, then i will have a good exscuse not to drive it....

If its going to snow as much as it says it will, I will need the extra weight the bonneville is packin.
The car warms up to like 170 max right now with the heat on, 185 drilled Tstat in there....we peaked 48 degrees today... things arent really looking up :(

snow in september? is that even possible?

btw, does your tranny handle better in the cold? do you think it will hold together long enough?

cold seems to help a bit, thicker fluid viscosity makes the difference..but once it reaches 190 degress (yes even in -45F it will warm right up) it will be the same.

For all the time it takes to swap stats, just put the warmer one back in for the winter.

Our leaves are starting to fall but still warm temps during the day.

My 160 stat will stay in all winter now that I'm running the trick E-stat.

As soon as the salt hits the roads in late November, I won't be driving it much if at all until the roads dry up in March. :(
