Yeah, if the aux fan dies while out in the field, the Spal is my backup. I've tested the Spal as my main cooling fan and it keeps the car nice and cool like the aux fan does.

The temperature of the radiator is not the same temperature that the thermostat sees. The radiator radiates heat and thus is cooler then the engine. Hence the temp switch will only be triggered when...

They're high capacity 3 row, high fin density radiators for racing.

I think its overkill unless you're endurance racing in the middle of a desert in July.

Tyler, make sure to grab a garden sprayer to spray down the Z2s in between runs. I liked them with pressures in the low 30s.

Run Rotella T6 straight, skip the Seafoam treatment.


UUC sucks big time. They messed up there. Ask CJ to grind off some material so it fits the rod joint and the shift rod.

Highly speculative but the water pump may have failed in such a way that the higher sustained RPMs while cruising is causing cavitation and thus not enough water flow.

Access it from underneath the car. Its a real pain to pull the plug out. A good pair of needle nose pliers and a sailor's vocabulary is required.

Looks like the upper control arm is bent which is odd since the lower control arm is a split design to deform for such an event.

In any case I would replace both the upper and lower control arms....
