Yesterday afternoon I received a call from Nick
; basically he started asking me exactly the same questions as John, so I just asked him to take a look at what John and I have talked about already.
I was asked to drive the car without bumper to see if temperatures would drop and I immediately had to refuse because one, it's against the law to drive without bumper and I will get a ticket; two, I live right next to Sheriff's station, so no, don't even want to try.
Nick had also asked something about the "official" install guide they have on the website and asked whether if I followed it........ He said that nobody else has that huge gap between the radiator and AC condenser, so it could be because I didn't follow the instructions........ He was also curious regarding me having to shorten the hoses, he said that normally this is not necessary. I had to explain (again) that because the radiator is pushed towards the engine (further than OEM), the hoses became too long and would not fit unless I trimmed them. Again, the upper one had to be trimmed anyway due to installing the hose adapter for my water gauge but the lower one was way too long to fit.
I mean, don't get me wrong - I appreciate the follow up; however, I feel like the same questions get asked and it is somewhat annoying to having to repeat myself every time. I thought we already came up to conclusion and the return/refund was granted. I don't think there's much more to troubleshoot.
