While building my 406 over the winter I posted and searched for information that made my build a success. The main concern i had was will she stay cool because half the posts expressed overheating problems while the other half said their motors never had issues. Well, I only have good news in Indiana we have had several days at 96/97 degrees and my 406 maintained 190 while driving and 195 at stop lights so my fears are over. listed below is my engine info and hope it helps others building a simular motor.
