Cooling Improvements...Scorching Hot Summer Is Coming

115 degree days are normal during the summer where I live.

Mod wise, I only have an intake(w/ heat shield), and an exhaust.

I'm looking to help my engine run a bit cooler so everything generally runs nicer, for longer.

So here's what I'm thinking of so far:
-Throttle body spacer
-Intake manifold spacer
-New grille(I'm sure this doesn't matter at all, but more airflow isn't a bad thing)
-Possibly the Mishimoto oil cooler
-Throttlebody coolant bypass

What else can I do? Thoughts?

30/70 mix of coolant to water.

water is a better heat transfer medium than coolant.

coolant is there to be an antifreeze, raise the boiling point and to be a corrosion inhibitor.

be sure to bleed the system properly or else you are likely to have overheating issues.

engine cooling im guessing; TB coolant bypass is a free mod that will keep it a few degrees cooler; TB spacer not that much unless you are planning on water/meth; grimmspeed phenolic spacer works good, if you are doing this i would suggest going for the "extended" studs and get thermal gaskets.

There are some more things to do, your best friend around forums is the search tool as mostly everything has been bashed about.

Basically what red said. I have CSF + my lo speed fan is on at all times, so my temps don't ever go above 180* no matter how I drive or what I do. Just avoid mishimoto garbage.
