It's already mid to upper 80's here in Houston. Driving unloaded around 70-75mph with a hot tune my ect is 195-199 and my eot is 201-207. So the greatest difference has been 8*. A little hotter than I want it to be especially reading the temps from other members.
Luckily there's no oil in the coolant. Gonna do a Blackstone test on the oil as a precautionary measure for cavitation and other issues. Been running my coolant filter for a couple weeks. Well one week cause I had the lines on backwards hahaha. Soon I'll pressure test cooling system ( just got a kit. it might be excessive but I'm sure I can use it for other future autos.) The black sandy stuff I'm hoping is casting from the block and not a cracked egr cooler exposing soot into the cooling system. The gold coolant seems clean besides the walls of the degas bottle.
If everything checks out ok then I'll do a full egr delete and then a proper coolant flush with restore and restore plus. Already have 4 gallons of cat ec concentrate in the garage along with 20 gallons of distilled water.
