I love summer but my Maggie loves fall

These 50 degree zero humidity nights in Chicago are great, my car is running unbelievable. The lower IAT's make it a night and day difference. Just thought I share.

I wonder if running the spacer would result in close to the same performance?

You could do a battery relocate, get a 05-09 mustang moroso battery tray coolant tank, and do a LFP dual pass heat exchanger for a 03/04 cobra.

Avas set mine up for me. I did the battery relocate so the sloppy wiring is all me lol.

I'm already spraying it with meth. I'm making good power now, 615 rwhp, but really noticed a difference with the cool temps.

I started to look into a bigger heat exchanger and coolant tank but I'm running this in my 71 camaro so the room is different. Ant measurements on that coolant tank?

Thanks

We haven't had much snow so far so I'm still having a blast in the goat, ambient temps this morning on my way to work was hovering just above zero, IAT's while moving are <20* and sitting at lights it climbs to about 50*. Although this power is useless with poor traction.

Why not just relocate the tank to the trunk also?

Mine would go in the trunk but my battery area is pretty small. I read that the fuild capacity on the LPE is the same as the Magna so would a bigger tank even be needed?

Ton of work to swap out my H/E. and if the new one is much thicker it may not even fit at all. Does look like I may be able to get a fan out it. But, I can probably get more bang for the buck with some NOS.

As someone else mentioned try doing the heatercore mod for the summer. I did this on mine recently and ran my car at the track 10 times in 3.5 hours. 3 of those runs were in the last 6 minutes. My MPH was the same on all runs. In fact my last run had a slightly higher MPH Tells me the mod works pretty darn well.

Thanks for the tips guys. My car makes a lot of power now, which you guys help happen. And as mentioned its in a 71 camaro so even though its a GTO kit, not all the same mods will work for me. I can probably get another 20 plus horse by going down in pulley size if I want a bit more, but looks like the h/e swap or heater core mod is more work than its worth.

Besides, I am in the process of installing a LME built TT 408 in my 66 Nova. This is pushing north of 1000 rwhp, so if I need more or lose a race, I'll go get this

Heatercore mod will work if you have an AC I think. It cost me $30 total and took about 30 minutes

cooler air = denser air = more power.
