very nice for the price!

Couple that with an electric water pump, and of course an e-fan, and you could cool the car down in the pits with the engine off.

By doing this, I can drop 20 degrees in under 5 minutes.

Fan is pictured. ;)
Actually, in traffic, while idling, the fan with the copper mustang radiator would drop from a boil to 190 in about a minute. It's just no match for a 1/2 hour session on the track.

Mine

Hello

Mine is a Griffin racing. Dual core with 1in oval tubes.
How-ever I still run hot over 5000rpm.

I have the electric fan + a under-drive lower pulley.
Racing water pump.

Electric

Hello

Yes, I run the stock V-6 Electric Fan

I think the 2bbl. carb goes lean at 6000 or so.

She starts cooling down during cautions, But start climbing as soon as we go green.

I am going to remove the spring in the lower hose & replace the bottom air deflector.

Pop some holes in your fan shroud, and add a flapper-valve of flexible rubber, like the old Audi side-mounted radiators used.

When you're driving, the air isn't moving as fast through your radiator because it's hitting obstructions on the other side, in the form of your shroud and fan. Give it a way to get by and temps should drop. The flapper valve ensures that teh shoud works whent he fan is on (negative presure sucks them shut)
Also sugest putting some holes in the hood to let heat out on the top-side of the car:

Inner

Hello

I did that to the inner rear wheel well. Screen covered, Both sides.
I also cut A hole in the nose & removed 1/2 the front bumper(bottom 1/2)

I think most is due to the carb. leaning out at top end.
