        I think you should find a 540 front end. That Volvo lip belongs on a Volvo man

            For $6... can I do any better? no

            540 lips are cool for sure.. but not $6

                  Actually, you want it to be on just under the opening of the Thermostat. Most Thermostats are not like a switch, it's a gradual transition from open to close (couple degree's either side.) In a properly working cooling system, the thermostat should be opening and closing as the engine temp fluctuates. You want the water to linger in both the engine block and the radiator, so having the fan come on before the thermostat opens helps to cool the incoming charge.

                  It's a lot more complicated to describe then I feel like typing tonight, but in summary, it's good to have the fan on even if the temp drops below the open/close threshold of the T-stat.

                          Local exhaust guy (best in town) today got my car up on the rack and quoted me $80 to run a single 2.5" pipe from the cat back.. so about 10 feet long Id guess. And install my muffler.

                          Fair price?

                              I thought it was a good price, I saw this skylark that he was just finishing up and it looked topnotch.

                                Took me 4 years but I seem to have blown 1 of my rear bilstein sports. Swapped diffs and found a large puddle of hydraulic fluid below the shock
