I agree gearhead. I have been working on cars and race engines for 30 plus years and have been a shop owner for the past 14 years. I only put my two cent in to try and let the guy know he would be ok with 160 stat. Just trying to help.

Some pepole are to smart for there own good and think they know everything.

Unbiased opinion from a blue belly, who doesn't live in a trailer, but my car does.

It has been proven that the best conditions for a drag engine are:

Staging lane procedures.

Warm oil, thru heaters.... and lukewarm coolant. The oil has started to reach it's best consistency for proper lubrication, less oil pump drag. Lukewarm coolant allows clearances to stabilize, maximizing performance.

For street operation the higher stat will prevent milky oil conditions and allow the optimizing of the oils additives. Don't forget, the rating of the stat is for "in the block" coolant temperature, then it opens. The rest of the cooling system must be capable of lowering this coolant to a suitable temp before it enters the engine again.

Inside the water jackets, the only coolant that absorbs heat is the coolant in contact with the engines passages.... that's the outer boundary layer. Unless there is turbulence inside , so that the "inner" wall of coolant may come into contact with the engines passages, and absorb more heat and carry it away.

If the cooling system isn't bled and air is permitted to remain inside, steam pockets form. The incoming cooler fluid hits the steam or hot spot, boils, and you don't have any thermal exchange, because the coolant is vaporized.

Hope this helps, as my vocabulary most certainly has with this thread :shock: :shock:

Both of the original two posters are guilty of letting this thread get 'too hot headed'. "WTF ! Over !"

Its all a Joke DD My friend and I wouldn't bite until now.....Charlie pm'ed me over on the classifieds apologzing and so forth a few months back..I told him no problem all is well with me...then he gets on here acting and talking like he was raised in a Cave in IRAN.

At least when he was here on this forum he had manners and didn't use that kind of language...but you know people like him that are followers will act just like the people they are around...

Good luck Charlie you are one weak individual Sir...and yes I would say this standing Nose to Nose with you all 6ft 2 inches 235 lbs of me !!!...Count on it !!....Tn aint that far from S.C....come on over and be my Pit man one weekend and let me show you how a real CAR suppose to run.... and I will teach you some manners to take back with you...you punk .

Read this thread of where ole CEPX111 first went over to YB...the way I read the post was his Ex-wife and Kids have to survive on Welfare because he doesn't give enough support to them to survive...trust me they would not be getting welfare if he gave them enough to at least Eat....yes folks thats who we are dealing with here....

I dunno you read it and make your own conclusion...

Now I am 100% done with this Clown...stay over on Yb for Good you punk !
