my Jetfire runs a little hotter than i like. everyone is telling me it is ok but thought i would add a shroud to it anyway. anyone have any ideas as to the best way to make a shroud for it and look somewhat like it should be there? or is there another car that has a shroud that could be modified to fit nice? in traffic stop and go i am running 200-220. open road i am 180 when 50MPH or lower but over 50 MPH and it goes just over 190. Mark from D&D is recommending i change my pulleys from the original under driven setup.
Hotter is better! You are no where the “danger zone”. Your cooling system will keep the temp under 252 degrees (50/50 Ethelyn glycol/water boil). The cool you are after cuts performance and fuel economy. Jetfire OEM thermostat is 168 degrees. The 200-220 is NOT a problem. If you really want a “shroud” go for it! Might just want to check your radiator first, they DO get plugged and require cleaning by rodding out the core.
Mark from D&D has me spooked. He is the only one telling me it is to high. then again, he is also the one that talked me into adding a Pertronix and then the Pertronix module left me stranded on the side of the road. I am back to points and going to stay with them.
