Thanks! We're gonna need it.

We've swapped in our craigslist turbo-coupe motor, using the turbo coupe turbo, merkur upper intake, turbocoupe lower intake, TC intercooler, Giant Turbocoupe radiator, 6 pass oil cooler, 4 pass power steering cooler, 180° t-stat.

We are NOT going to lose to cooling system problems again.


we will lose for other reasons.
