Default Update

Seems like you never stop upgrading and tinkering.

I now have a 4l80e behind my 454 mild build and it makes a world of difference to the big revving TH400 on a 3.73 rear gear. I can run with the highway traffic without putting a load on the valve train.

I just scored a Lincoln Mark Viii fan off ebay for $38.00 plus shipping to avoid the clutch fan which seems to have real difficulty cooling the big block at stop lights in this perpetual summer heat in this part of the world.

I'm doing the volvo relay controller on my four core copper radiator built by a local shop.

I tried the Champion three core and it did not work for me. I kinda realise that the problem with the rad was my fault when I had a 16lb cap that may have been faulty and it blew a hole in the rad.

Local shop says they can repair it but I do no think aluminum rads are good for repair.

Looking forward to the Mark Viii fan conversion and hoping that all my heat problems disappear.

Car is a load of fun.
