Re: XR4Ti Aluminum Radiators

It defiantly lowered my operating temperature by 15 degrees and the fan has only come on during an idle test since I put it in.
I think summer will be much more comfortable this year.

Re: 2013+ Focus front brakes

I like where you are going with this, and would like to see it happen.
I have a '13 Focus and the brakes seem pretty good in comparison.
How large of inner wheel rim diameter would you need ? ( maybe I should take a tire off ? :D )

Re: xr with dull paint

Start slow !
3M makes some great stuff that is somewhat from the fiberglass boat business.
I have used Perfect-it and others in the past, it could cut through a car's paint in short order.
Finesse-it is lighter but still pretty stout.
Be careful
Do not hurry ?

Re: Just got it today

I am enjoying your work.
I would like to suggest two things.
1. Make sure your chassis/engine ground(s) are GOOD
2. Get it running well "as is" then change / add performance. A good tune in a baseline configuration may save you many headaches ?
And good luck ! :wink:
