since the JK is creeping up to 50k I figured it's time to flush the coolant, and since I'm doing that I might as well change my pump, thermostat, and radiator.
|first things first, grill off.|
|fan shroud off|
|radiator unbolted from condenser|
the four 8mmmm bolts holding the condenser to the radiator are a pain in the dick to get off, and even worse to get back on.
|all done and ready to go|
So since I'm making this post weeks after it's been installed I can actually give decent information on how it's running. To make it simple, it works as expected; in a way the radiator is overkill for a stock engine. With the stock radiator, the temperature would hold steady at around 204 on the highway. Wi the Mishimoto radiator it holds 194 and on cold days it actually ran at around 192. Cold is good but not too cold since heat dissipated is energy lost, which is potential power lost. But that's a whole other can of worms. Until next time
