    Basically, under 80C coolant temp, your ECU will command more fuel. It will not dump a lot of fuel either, but it will use more.

    Get a 85/90 fan switch, it should solve your problem. I think my...

    Make sure the sensor and gauge are supposed to work together. A temp sensor is a variable resistor so you need your gauge to interpret that resistor correctly, or you could get strange results.

    I still bet you cant make a better cage or just an even cage than the one you want to copy for less. Of course, if you plan to steal materials from your workplace, it will cost less. Is that what you...

    You could not be more wrong. You dont even know how much tubing you need, nor the price of any inspection; how can you say it is going to cost less ?...

    Get one from apex (hint: they are the ones you want to copy), it will be safer, cheaper, done faster and prettier. They sell for 379 if memory serves. You cant beat that.

    Believe me, i know what a big turbo on a ca18Det means. Yours is still small :D That turbo should be spooling near 4000rpm.

    And i also know 256cams are not going to cut it, because 260/10.25 lift...
