That is exactly the reason I have one, the sooner the better and the quicker the cooling kicks in on the engine, if it's one minute or five minutes. With both the low temp thermostat and the oil cooler, I feel more comfortable. "But again everybody have their own opinions which is good and helps to provide good advice in discussions on the forum from their own experience with their cars. I like reading the posts for that reason. The more-the better to work with and learn from.

agreed im going to run the stock thermo tho i figure by the time im on the track pushing the car. its well warm and flowing. if i see temp issues. ill be switching it up but with water wetter my new radiator and the HR head gasket mod i dont expect temps to be too bad. never had an issue w the blower on the stock block but we shall see.

Exciting. I'm following this closely. We're both getting new motors and we had exact same power numbers previously. Let's see who can get more power in the end

I'm going with the Si. The 928 doesn't fit my V3 SCi housing. My build thread:

cant wait for the motor. it shipped from IPP yesterday. also will be 1 of the 5 trying out Oldman's vortech bracket stiffner. ready to get the show on the road. although once motor comes in i will be going on a cruise. once back though things should ***knock on wood** start moving quickly.

Ship that motor to me while you're on your cruise. I'll break it in for you.

going on a cruise to the western carribbean then once i return things should start moving! excited to get it all together. the tune on the uprev should run the motor decently well as injectors/pump have not been changed. hopefully it runs smooth enough to drive it around and out of boost to break motor and clutch in then drive to tuner and see what she puts down
