my buddys cavaqueer overheated when we were riding in it a month or two ago, the radiator was messed up, the engine caught on fire and smoke started bellowing into the interior through the heater/ac vents.. it sucked.

dude you guys have no idea how much help a NEW radiator is for the engine. YOu guys may not realize it b/c you dont have the autometer gauge to get the EXACT temperature of it. But before i used to run 192-194 degrees and hell right now i stayed at a cool 180...hell i even hit 170 degrees coming from a 1hr trip...

then the 180 performance thermostat from EE is going to OWN ME!
