Thanks!

Are you in 86 Atlanta? We need more local track guys to encourage the scaredy cats in our group. PM me your name and I'll add you.

Yes.
It's almost unwatchable and half of the viewers complain it made them nauseous.

Got busy today and installed a new belt, Fluidamper performance crankshaft damper, Perrin Accessory pulleys and a slim fan shroud with dual 1150 cfm fans.












Lots more room for activities! The Fluidampr has definitely made the motor rev more smoothly at high RPMs. Great peace of mind for a track car with a stock motor.

You should never expect 16 gauge US Stainless steel to rust.

What material were those parts constructed from? Who made them?

JDL, bought not too long after you got yours. Titanium ceramic coated too... That's the OP/FP flanges. I thought I snapped a pic of the header with speckles of rust all over it, but I guess not.

The flanges got rusty first, then the welds, then random speckles on the tubes.

FWIW I only posted it BECAUSE it was from JDL. It's a grade of stainless that rusts (though it seems like maybe the flanges aren't extremely high quality...) and I'm surprised yours hasn't rusted...

That sucks. I'd contact them about warranty on the parts. Mine gets heat cycled much harder and more frequently than most. Car is garaged and I live in the South, so no salty roads to drive on in the winter.

I heat cycled it similarly to your use. The issue is the salty roads. That was the whole reason I got it ceramic coated... I was less than impressed. I already contacted them with no response, BTW. It wasn't all that visible from the engine bay so I never pursued it further.

Car is sold anyway

oh, here's the pic I sent to JDL...


anyway, didn't mean to poop all over your thread, but it was relevant to the question.

No worries.

Back on topic. Here's a pic showing the difference in fan depth.

Installed a Koyo high pressure (1.3 bar) radiator cap. This should help improve the pressure in the cooling system to make it more efficient.
