    I agree with my Divisional racing buddy (Hickeybros). The engine won't make power until you get a little heat in it. It's like fishing baits...most of them catch the fisherman......

    My dad built his own. Two wheeled hand cart, small radiator, electric fan, and electric water pump. There is now way it cost him $3000.

    Did it help? the Ford six was very temperamental and keeping the head from leaking was hard. So it helped us in that regarded. It did help to regulate engine temperatures more then cool it down.
