    • Cold case all the way. Brass 4 vote radiators can compare. It has nothing to do with the material it's made from and everything to do with the way the tubes are engineered. The 2 core cold case removes far more heat than any factory brass unit. Why? The 2 core is the SAME thickness as the 4 core, but with thinner wider tubes that dissipate heat better. I've run both the only one who thinks a 4 core brass is better hasn't had a cold case yet.
    • The fix to this is adding a diode to L wire on your regulator to prevent the back feeding. The 10 DN alternator is so weak, even better is a 10 SI or even better a cs130.
    • Look, if it has 500hp it doesnt drive like grandmas car. Our 500 hp car will scare the crap out of the inexperienced. So tell me how you know you have 500hp? ??Then what intake, cam, heads, and carb. Finally,  what rear end gear.  When it is making 500hp, your white smoking sideways driving car will let you know it's ok. But we can figure it out if you provide us the information. It's not a mystery anymore, we know exactly how to make one run properly as these dyno's keep people honest. Unlike the often lies of the old days.
    • That's not a valve, that's only a vacuum  Tee.  A local hardware store will have a brass threaded pipe that will thread into the carb. Attach your vacume line to that.
    • Yes I had Cibies. Yes they had h4 bulbs, and 7" glass lenses in my  RX7. Yes they weren't legal, and yes I ran them everywhere with no issues. They were not hard to obtain. They were a vast improvement over stock lights of the time period, and were vastly better than any T3 light. The halogen bulbs at the time were expensive and burnt out often. However, the point was, both are outdated today. The HID lights do more using less resources, more durable, last longer, and are far far brighter in both volume and intensity. They can fit in the Cibie housings if you wish. Cibie sold quite a few pairs of thier lights, I had exactly one pair. I'm not sure what your jibberish is regarding housings, but I promise you new vehicles with those projector  hid lights are far brighter than any 7" Cibie. However, I drive a classic car and do not have the luxury of selecting the size of the headlights, I have to go with what is there. The bulbs I can change.
