I just removed the cooler. It's a terrible design, and dead weight.

I was thinking same about mph. When ya get a chance john get me a log preferably with a 3-4 with shift so I can see if it's off since we are locking earlier.

No headwind. Lock-up might be a spot off but the front half was strong, 12.06 and 7.72/90.5mph were all new bests. I did go 113.6 two outings ago won't be hard for us to figure out the happy medium.

Nspah, we thought about doing that at the track but it looked too complicated to do in the parking lot. I'd like to see pics on how you did that. I bet the COPO's don't have this setup.

Just use a solid upper rad hose and use the oil crossover piece from the f-body/vettes. the cooler bolts in the same location. its literally a 5 minute swap, two 10mm bolts and a rad hose

Far Left.
97-2000 Corvette OFAC (still available) Part Number 12551587
Comes already drilled and with a metric thread M12 x 1.5

Centre
Fbody OFAC (No Longer available from GM new**) Part Number 12551595
Comes blank (not drilled and no thread)
**Part superceded by 12577903

Right
GTO OFAC Part Number 12577903
Comes blank (not drilled and no thread)


Gm#12611384 is the gasket


Good place to use temp or pressure senders for aftermarket gauges, or just use the one with no ports.

You can see how the oil cooler mounts in the same location here with bolt #6 and gasket #3. It, and everything attached to it gets removed. I used a generic parts store upper hose

I wonder if 62nalide is running some gear or stock gear?

Seems like my MPH goes up a lot if I spin, which I know is usually the case for drag racing, but in some respects this would validate the value of running at least 3.70 gears I think right?
