Dry ice is kind of expensive!

Just pack your engine bay with Walmart ice blocks.
That usually does the trick!

Lol. Just run it. It'll be OK. That temperature Guage is only a suggestion.

This is normal. Drain the coolant and drive around a few days with no coolant. It flushes the system and clears it up. Then its good to go.

Toooo much weight on the nose. I saw this hood scoop at autozone and thought that maybe if i made a big hole it can be air cooled

Is dry ice safe to be throwing it into the coolant tank?
