    Thanks for the lead! Matt D is running a Volvo tank, so it looks like there should be a few different options out there to test. I'd like a tank I can check the level on more easily so now seemed...

    Yeah it makes a big difference when you have an air/air intercooler less than 1" away.

    There was an owner at DCS16 from the Southwest that had to field replace his tank with a nearly bolt-on,...

    [Engine] 2019 plastic expansion tank options

    I'd like to revert back to a plastic expansion tank, but it looks like the modern repros plastic tanks are no longer available. I head they had issues so I'm OK with not using an original style.

    I tried VSS-based fan shutdown and reverted to stock operation after a weekend, and that's with an aluminum radiator.

    I found it doesn't seem to take much to disturb the airflow through radiator...

    Not all cars have a high pressure cutoff switch or relief valve.

    If you have a car with no HP switch (and consequently no high pressure relief valve), and the compressor never shuts off, and the...

    Are you joking? Next time my car is on a lift that thing is coming out. Totally unnecessary with EFI.

    I actually remember that 217 event. Open the graph again and look at the MPH in which 210 degrees was exceeded.

    I had set MS to not engage cooling fans above 40MPH which seemed to work well. ...

    I think the formula is pretty established at this point and you can leave most of the intake as-is. DPI even sells rails and locks with the proper 108mm spacing if you don't want to do that part and...

    That's how hot they all run. Go and fix some real problems :D

    It was a double-win being able to attend and having an uneventful round-trip drive :D Would have loved to talk longer with Bill Collins and Bob Manion.

    Misfires read lean since there is extra free oxygen in the exhaust.

    About the only time you would see a low AFR without combustion is if there was enough fuel vapor to displace oxygen, aka a...

    If you're feeling enterprising, there are also methods of implementing AC control through megasquirt which can shut down AC in an overheat condition.

    BUT look at your gauge RPM vs MS RPM. The...

    All of the factory gauges should be considered rough estimates. They're indications will change with battery voltage, ground condition, etc. Trust the Megasquirt gauges more!

    Is your internal an LC1 or LC2?

    I had an LC1 go crazy on me. They have some documented design-level issues that make for a short lifespan.

    Unfortunately the available engine literature is ambiguous on the subject.

    Definitely a PO hack!

    It'll probably never be a bleeder again as the tapered seat is likely drilled away. Might best be replaced with a barb using the next size up NPT or something similar, and a...
