And here you go ruining that sweet simplicity - shame on ye'!!!

Nice looking powdercoated parts, BTW (the CAR parts, not YOUR parts !).

Well I have a feeling when I release an extra 100-150HP that is trapped by an outdated exhaust, turbo and intercooler. I'm going to need something better than a trombone to cooler her down.

"Ball Joints? Have you changed yours? At what miles were they needed?
Mine are fine. But I have this "while I'm in there" thought to replace them.
I guess I don't want to spend another $300 on parts and a tool unless It's needed."

80k on mine, they are ok. Unless you are into the boost all the time in Death Valley the trombone cooler should be ok, dirt simple and bullet proof, unless you are going to track it. How are you liking the lift?

After my first hard run in the west Texas 100* heat I found this 44 row oil cooler with fan at BAT, now she runs cool in any weather.

Even the Carrera cooler with fan is barely good enough when caught in a traffic jam in temps approaching, or above 100 - the trombone would be crying for Mama daily around here.

I can't put into words how cool the lift is. I need under the car more. I walk over and push a button. I need the car lower or get in the car I push a lever. A very nice tool.

If you get caught in traffic jams I agree, all bets are off. Maybe the trombone would help in that situation if you get out of the car and blow on it.

Deez is a horn(y) blowing expert, so I bet that would work for him!

This 5" fan works great - I may have relocated my horns to make space.

That looks like the same fan I got.
I also got an adjustable thermostat controller that I am going to hook to the ground of the relay. It's just a probe type. But I figure I can adjust it to dial in the correct engine temperature.

I put mine on a toggle switch in the console. I only have to use the fan on the hottest days.

Thank you for the diagram.

It's good to hear that oil temps are not a major issue with these cars and the minor modifications I'm doing. We don't get the humidity here, but 100-110* is pretty normal June-Aug. I'll most likely be driving the F150 on those days, But who knows.

Question on the engine mods.
So I know I won't have time to get the exhaust, turbo, WUR, ect.. engine parts on for this summer. There would be the tuning issues that come with the changes and the countless "while I'm in here" things. Plus the stock clutch probably won't handle the increase in power.

So if I just do the headers and hook them to the KKK turbo were talking less than 50HP increase that should be easy to tune without a lot of drama. Yes / No???
Or are the turbo and exhaust bolts going to be frozen, break off and F-me into removing everything?

BTW, if you take your time and use lots of penetrating oil and maybe a little heat, you can get those bolts out fairly easily. It will still be a massive PITA, but they will come out. Removing fasteners is above all a state of mind.

Absolutely easy . . . may not even need to adjust control pressures with just that change, butt will know when you see what the AFR meter shows (butt you do currently have the choked like a chicken system on there, so might need adjustment when replaced). Regardless, easy to do with the Leask WUR.

Will the modified WUR be needed for just the headers?
