Re: Champion VS. Entropy
The champion in the 71 started to seep at the header at the top, both right and left side after about a year and a half. Champion warrantied it, but blamed the engine for the problem.
My 408 ci small block with ac stays cool with my intrepid electric cooling fans during the heat of phoenix summers. BUT... I have temp problems when running the road course at firebird when it's warmer out. I can run for about 15 minutes and the temp gets to about 230. I have to pull into the pits.
When I do it again, I will buy a radiator with larger tubes, at least a 1" tube.
