View Full Version : Thoughts on SC Over Heating/Blown Head Gaskets?

My super coupe, like so many others out there have experienced blown head gaskets. I don't believe it's entirely the super chargers fault, or too much exhaust back pressure. It is my contention that a flaw in the design of the A/C and Heating system is to blame for the untold numbers of blown head gaskets in cars that have this design flaw. Read the attached document and tell me what ya think...

that wasnt my problem i always run on vent so it doesnt run the ac i dont have climat control . as long as the cooling fan is working ok it should stay cool enough

Personally, I've only had cooling problems once, due to 2 blown fuses, which were both for the cooling fans. Other than that, i use the heater core to my advantage for cooling in the summer, or when a race is at hand.

I think the head gasket problem is caused by the aluminum heads that overheat and warp :eek:
