Keep us up to date on this when it comes to daily driving. If its fairly good for engine temps I might do this next winter during my buildup because I doubt I will be able to afford sleeves. I was going to post the block, but if this works better!

even tho its a single cam can't it handle more? like maybe 20? and if i did this to my ls block with forged pistons with crower rods or something could it handle like 15 daily with 20 on the track?

i just don't want to max out my turbo.... i did the math and it starts to lose its efficiency badly @ around 17psi.

put t-stat in it tonite, and it stayed in the normal temp range for the 10 miles i drove it.....it has heat now, thats a good thing, and it also don't run in open/closed loop anymore!!! give me a week, weather permitting, to test it out in realworld conditions... (making her scream)
