Stubby79, I didn't mean to sidestep your comment. I'm ok with running over 181F, but 200+ while cruising is a little warmer than I am comfortable with. I'll have to keep playing with it until I get it just right. I think if I block all the air going around the radiator, so more goes through it, I might be able to put the passenger block back on and keep the coolant under 200.

I believe it was BamZipPow, but the pictures on his thread are down. Someone made a channel like I think you are talking about. It just seals the gaps between the front of the car and the radiator so that no air escapes around it.

Also if you haven't seen it already:

BTW you should consider adding yourself to the ecomodder user map if you haven't already. https://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=1047848

Good luck

Thanks for the pic M a t t.
That's really close to what I was thinking (maybe a little fancier than what I had in mind..back to the drawing board!). We aren't too far apart. We were just down at Johnny Carino's in Muncie last weekend!

I'll have to get myself of the map.
