I think that given the cold winters you get where you are that using the radiator cooler is a good idea, I don't think the thermostat would be necessary though, it's just another part that can fail. I'd try it without the thermostat first and if its a problem when really cold just use a winter cover up front (would probably need it to help keep the coolant up to temp anyways).
I'm not going to use my rad cooler at all, I don't travel where it's that cold and if I did I'd just block the front off a bit if it ever became an issue.
I don't run a radiator cooler in my motorhome either and it's never been an issue.

Got my carrier bearing bracket fabbed.


Also tapped my exhaust manifold for an EGT probe. Wow that was awful.

Up and down pipes are ceramic-coated and wrapped. Transmission crossmember and carrier bearing brackets are headed to powdercoat on Monday. I ordered my trans coolers on Friday, so I should be able to start working on brackets and lines next week.

I was going to say "perfect time to do the rear main seal" but I remembered you said you were going to pull this apart and do studs/gaskets...just as easy to do it then..

Following both this and Lenís build closely. I also purchased the Magnaflow exhaust from epay . Will be installing that this weekend. Did the late model LML drivers side exhaust manifold, Magnaflow down pipe, and Rudyís performance HD up pipes today.
