I hope you cooling problem is taken care of.  This is a product that I have heard of but never used myself.  And no, not a canoe.

I'm happy with the performance of my Flow Kooler water pump.

A lot of nice looking cars at the pig roast at the shop today-- thanks for the invite!

The lay of the ground made the drivers side up the Supra look super hard parked!

I actually have a flow kooler pump sitting in the car now. I tried just running a restrictor to see if that would help. It has and hasnt. At idle now no matter the speed it drops down to about 203 but still slowly creeps up at highway speed. At 30mph for about 15 min of driving it got up to 217, so not ideal. Gonna take a step back and decide my next step. The kooler water pumper would be great but i dont know if it is going to mess with my serptine setup at all.

I just saw this post about running hot and the serpentine setup and I haven't taken the time to go back and learn anything at all about what you're doing and what the problem is so this may be completely relevant but, I've seen some Ford overheating issues in the past from using water pumps that turn the wrong way.

If it gets worse while driving down the road, I'm thinking you have an airflow issue, not a water issue.

Is there a path for air to go around the radiator instead of through it?  If so, just tape some cardboard around those areas and then go drive it and see if it's better.  If it is, find a more better way to seal it.  If not, well, you didn't lose anything except a small bit of time.

Yeah! Those are some sweet mowers.

I like the GTO also.

When I added a dual fan setup to my Mustang it worked fine everywhere except at the track.  Problem was the shroud, it blocked too much of the radiator, I cut holes in it for some of those cheap rubber flaps.  The flaps suck shut with the fans on and blow open at speed allowing flow to the whole radiator.  This was after some boxing in of the sides, it was a bottom feeder with the top sealed fairly well.
