    That's good at least. Sucks about that motor going out though.

      There's always that risk with a 100K motor I guess. The fact that I had the old Ansa sport exhaust from the M52 might have helped it along. Anyway, now I'm researching what to do for exhaust...supersprint race too loud? ;D

        What radiator are you running? Popped my HG @ 120k but I was running the POS 1 core M42 radiator.

          It's a behr E36 rad with an expansion tank. So, the proper one. I have a 78 degree stat in it too...runs b/n 1/4 and 1/2 on the temp gauge. Maybe go back to stock and let it run warmish?

              No. Leave a 75 deg t-stat in that engine. With a 2500 CFM fan, they NEVER go past 1/2 on the temp gauge, even in traffic on the hottest days. Hell, even a stock AC fan cools it amazingly well.

                  Doubtful. I'll be working and going shooting Sunday. I'll have to make it out for PRO-3 opening weekend, though!

                          ya i saw that. about to purchase the adjustable rear subframe tomorrow.

                          so i was going to replace all the bushings anyways. not sure which ones to go with.

                          not sure if i need the shorter ones since the subframe is adjustable.

                            Go with condor, I run there motor and tranny mounts, I like them a lot. I got redshift for the rear because they were cheaper

                              these ones?

                              doesn't say how hard they are. and no options to choose soft/hard like revshift.

                              not sure if theyre +$60 better than the revshift ones?

                              and i still dont know if i should get stock height or -12mm subframe bushings..

                                I've heard the revshift stuff isn't the greatest, not sure what harness they were referring to. Condor stuff is pretty hard. I'm sure you could shoot them an email and they'd give you all the info you need.
