It hasn't overheated. I refuse to drive it until I at least get the
radiator cleaned and install the new temperature sensor. I removed the
radiator from the car. It seems to have a lot of gook inside.
I just liked the idea of a superior radiator because I get annoyed with it
not running cooler and with the cooling fan coming on so frequently. I
figured if there was a way to quiet the cooling fan and not be so
reliant on it it would be cool
