Got the pipes all welded up. Man not sure how I survived before without a tig. Ignore the ugly and just know that nothing leaks.



Also developed a massive oil leak that I thought was due to my PCV mod but just turned out to be a vac pump that needed reseal



Its all back together and its in there straight but sits to the drivers side by 3/4 inch making it look crooked at some angles. Again function over form here. Also installed a new radiator and condensor as the originals where beat up. Bonus the new radiator is for an automatic so its twice as thick and I am gonna try to use the internal tranny cooler as an extra oil cooler.




The verdict. Temps are now 8 degrees F above ambient! A massive improvement and No heat soak at all.

Yea Zook I just hooked up the oil cooler and now coolant warms up a bit quicker but most importantly is water temp stays cooler by 4 degrees. never goes over 201F now on the hwy which is where the heaviest load is for this setup. I have no thermo control for the added oil cooler but we will see how it behaves when it gets cold to see if I need to one.

Added some cold weather prep for these brutal SC winters. Main goal is to keep my FE during cold snaps.
