I played around for a while today with all of these and couldnt come up with anything that didnt look like it would be a crapy looking mess.The two black ones looked like the only ones that would work sitting behind the rad next to the fan...I cant see that working very well.I might just stick my no...

I am pulling all the a/c stuff as we speak....is there a way to retain the front fan and wire to the rear one so they work together?

Your correct....but it goes to a small fitting just below the big bottem hose on the rad. I think I am just gonna rethink all the water lines and come up with something simpler to get rid of some of them.I already got rid of the oil cooler lines and was planning on getting rid of the valve for the h...

Radiator question. No luck searching.

My 85 5spd XR I just bought looks like the rad might be in need of a replacement. Well thats fine because my buddy has a parts car with a brand new rad in it I can have.So I go pick it up today and sure enough it looks new still.But once I get it home I noticed its different than mine.The donor car ...

Well I did some searching on MidwestSRT forums and found a FMIC shoot out with four different coolers.Surprisingly the stock one was SECOND from last! The stocker dropped temps 43*F and had a preasure drop of 1.3psi......the winner dropped temps 93*F and had a preasure drop of 3.0psi.Total WHP diffe...

Ya,one end is oval not round,but you can still use a 2.5" coupler with a regular clamp on it.No real bad bends or angles.

I am pretty sure Valeo makes almost all the aftermarket clutchs out there,along with most OEMs.That being said every SPEC kit I have seen had the plate painted blue and even had a sticker on it.That disc looks like a good one,way better than a stock parts store disc. I think its a crap shoot at best...

An old trick I used to do on any used older car I bought was to turn the dash vents on cool,not a/c just cool and spray a disinfectant in the cowl vent while the blower motor was running and let it blow the Lysol through all the heater ducts.I got rid of some stink that way on a few cars. And if you...

Forgive me for saying this but I dont understand how a SRT cooler could get heatsoaked any differant than any other IC out there.?.It has to have at least twice the cooling surface of a TC or SVO cooler and its not near a hot turbo so as long as it has air moving across its core how would this one b...

I dont know,call me weird I guess ,but I get off on making things work for me that people would never think would or say will not work at all. Like when I used a set of 01 Cobra tailpipes to use as IC plumbing on my old drag Ranger.After I was done more than one person said "wow,all the bends look f...

daily driver yes.....225hp no! Motor is a fresh rebuild with a ported big valve head,RR,RW sprocket,Bobs intakes,ported E6 and a Precision SC50 with 3" from elbow to bumper.

Anyone ever use a SRT4 IC?

I am rebuilding a 85 xr and want to use my rotated upper with a front mount if I can.I have a stock SRT4 front mount that I thought looked like would fit down low in the bumper cover at first...now after looking more I am not so sure. Anyone used one with any luck? Yes I know there are bolt in coole...
