So one of the side effects of the track day...discovered I had the wrong radiator and overheated the snot out of the oil because of it. 40+ miles on the track were a blast though! :lol:

I've never seen cold oil with 200 miles on it drain like water before. :lol:

Anyway - as a result I bought a new radiator and slim fans on eBay for dirt cheap and finally took the time to build the cold air intake properly!

PICS! :D

God my cell phone sucks at pictures!


Anyway - all that's left is fixing the idle to adjust for the light flywheel and it's once again roadworthy! :)


Just to drive the point home:

I don't know what open baffle is...what separates the rear wave from the front?

EDIT: After Googling...screw that design. It's wasteful and pointless. :lol: Why use 15" drivers to get the output/extension of an 8" driver?

I wouldn't bother. It'll get you very slightly better performance for cooling (maybe a degree or two). The issue is mostly due to your high room temperatures.

94 C is totally safe though - if you're not getting artifacting and the card is stable I wouldn't worry about it.

94 C isn't too terrible - it certainly won't damage it if that's what you're worried about.
