If your engine temp might be a little high, throw a bottle of water wetter in the coolant.Thank you railroad. Very cool things you said. I really enjoy when people read my threads and provide feedback. That includes constructive criticism. I have no problems when people say I should have done something different in a constructive way.
However, it's even cooler when people tell me I'm on track with things they would do. So, thank you for that brother.
Very cool story about your Dad. I'm a true blooded Mustang guy, but like to hear when people do something different. It's definitely a lot of fun to surprise people who think they have the race in the bag LMAO!!!
Thanks again for the feedback and advice. Much appreciated.
I just found this thread and damn what a kick ass car you have there! Great work getting it back to it's former glory too!
Thank you Bullitt. Although I like to post and share with you guys, to be honest, I'm actually documenting the build or project for myself as much as for posting. I like to see where I started and document the process and then see the end result. It's fun to see how bad it was compared to how it looks afterwards. It also helps me have a visual of my mistakes so I know how to avoid them or fix them next time around.Another fantastic job, you’re also much more dedicated to taking pictures and posting than I am. It’s just something I don’t often think about. I get involved in doing something rather than thinking about taking pics and sharing my story.
If your engine temp might be a little high, throw a bottle of water wetter in the coolant.
It breaks down the surface tension of the coolant and allows better surface contact with inside of the system.
It is not snake oil it works.
No bad side effects.
Keep up the good work.
Would a 25F deg delta be enough to show on an analog gage? Or will you be monitoring it by some other method?
I don't know yet DSG. I've been flushing the radiator a lot since the block had so much rust in it. So, I have not put any in yet.is that amsoil stuff somehow different than say water wetter?
ive fought like hell with air flow on my mach thanks to the big A2A intercooler up front. I thinned my anti freeze mix down so its good to around 10 degrees or so (I wanna say ~25%) with some water wetter it may have helped a few degrees but definitely nowhere near 25 degrees (im monitoring using an Aeroforce gauge via OBD2)
Once everything was completed I took it for a test drive. I drove it about 20 miles to my parents house to let my Dad check it out. It's really cool seeing the front screen on my phone. It displays MPH, RPM, Vacuum and AFR.
It looks like this:

After that him and my mom went for a cruise. It was pretty cool seeing them having fun in the car again.
