    First real hot day with the coupe, damned power lose sucks :(

    So it's hitting into the high 30's in the Okanagan valley. The supercoupe doesn't like the heat so much, noticed a couple times leaving lights and go to wind up the car (auto) no real suck you back into the seat. So have to stay out of the boost or else she'll start running a little warm.

    A couple things i need to do, is to change the coolant, thermostat. Then maybe look at running a switch into the car so i can control the fan a bit more or even upgrade the fan Not sure about options for that aspect. Look at the double intercooler option or even go with a fan set up or both.

    Now i'll be looking at options to keep this car cooler in the summer time heat.

    Now one thing i'm curious about and seen it on the new dodge demon is to run the AC plumbing into the IC, seen you can get a kit for the Mustang supercharged variants. Wonder if you could do the same thing on the coupe?

    If you are running hot at that temperature and your radiator and thermostat is good, you better check the fan's functionality. There's a low and high speed for the puller fan. Run diagnostics and report back.

    Where do you live? Summer is here and 30c degrees isn't much.
