 I hear you Chris, the same can be said for F1, boring, as the late John Clarke once said, "It's not a race, it's a procession" its not won on the track, it's won in the pits,  Regardless congrats to Scotty Mac and DJR for a stellar year,

a generic high flow t stat is not the same as a milodon t stat and won't work as well.

it doesn't matter who did the timing unless they know how to do it properly throughout the rpm range, which most people do not even though they say they do.

Is there a pattern here?

Shame really, all the chatter has detracted from Scott's achievements as a driver throughout the year.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

I have the FlowCooler and will install this in the coming days. I'll also order a high flow 180 tstat. I will also see what I can do to pull the fan to be 1/2 in 1/2 out of the shroud, but the shroud is hella deep which means the fan might not clear hoses/pulleys if 1/2 way out. Looking around at shrouds there seems to be stock (I guess less than an inch deep) which doesn't really do anything or the one I have, 3 1/2 inch hi perf one. Ideally I need one half way..... I may cut down the shroud I have.

Regarding timing, the car has just been tuned by Chev Performance in Carum Downs. He disconnected the vacuum advance and advanced it to... I think he said 35 deg from memory. This tune happened a few weeks ago and the car has been overheating in traffic for years before the tune when it had the vac advance connected and different timing (don't know what it was).
