25row is definitely overkill for the stock bumper and street use... figured id install it anyway for track events with the parking lamp off...

not quite sure if this will provide more cooling... anyone run this setup before and noticed any improvements.. some pics...

dump the t-stat... they stick on occassion. Just make sure you drive it easy until it heats up. Get a GTC or 99 spec nose for that thing.... so the poor coolers can see a lil daylight.

i would be carefull with removal of t-stats often times it can cause overheating due to cavitation and moving through the radiator too fast not givin enough time for propper cooling. Ive had better luck just removing the insides and leaving the body of the t-stat in the housing.
