slravene stupid question alert!

Is there a thermostat in it? Are the two ports on the side of the thermostat housing capped off, or are they looped together?

Yup. A lot of heat comes out of those vents.

Twankie I don't know how your "• Genright vented fenders." Work but is there any way they are allowing the engine bay to become pressurized at speed? That would then limit airflow through the radiator.

knaffie I know the filter location is not ideal. On the list of things to address at a later time.

Turnkey tuned the engine. It's all good except at the very peak of RPM, the fuel pressure drops off a tiny bit. So that shouldn't have an effect going down the highway at 2000 RPM.

Yes, the radiator has a full shroud and a 16" Spal fan. Spal verified it is the best fan for my application and that the only way to get more air flow is to go to dual fans, which I don't really have room for.

banipal19 How's your fuel pressure under load? If the fuel pump is not providing enough pressure then engine maybe running lean causing it to overheat.

SHARPMACHINE Hay Knaffie,

I highly doubt my 2 cents will help you at all....

The only things I notice from looking your description and pictures over is that your air intake seems to be in a location where you are pulling hot air in to your engine. Mine was in a similar location and gave me problems power wise. I got it closer to the fender and built a shroud which lowered my intake temps a fair amount. Secondly, is your fan shrouded so that it pulls from the whole radiator, or just the diameter of the fan?

knaffie I tried to read the whole thread looking for an answer, but only made it to 15.

I need some help with overheating. Anything more than light load and it warms up. A headwind at 55 MPH. A slight incline. Cruising on flat sand at more than 35 MPH. A long slow uphill. I usually catch it before it hits 240 then have stop and let it cool.

Here’s my setup:
• LJ on 40s with a stock L92 and 6L90E.
• Truck accessories.
• Novak’s newest radiator and shroud with the flaps, which was an improvement from the other Novak radiator I had.
• VA33-AP71/LL-65A which Spal verified is the best I can get.
• Engine tuned by Turnkey Engine Supply on their dyno.
• A/C and trans cooler in front of the radiator.
• No grille inserts.
• AEV vented hood.
• Genright vented fenders.
• Fender liners opened up some to clear coilovers and bypasses, but still mostly there.
• Winch and solenoid box in front, but not blocking too much air.
• OEM steam port piping used, vented to a port just below the upper radiator hose.
• The heater core is currently bypassed due to a leak. That did not help at all.

I'm on the verge of having Griffin or somebody build me a custom thicker / better radiator, but it'll be well over $1K and that just sucks.

Any advice on what actually works to keep these things cool?

I REALLY like that mount, but for $62 after shipping I'd call it overpriced. And that's probably why there's people selling the exact same looking mount on eBay for $35.

Mounted mine inside under the steering column behind the knee cover using a piece of round stock bent into a "U". Slid a piece of fuel hose to dampen vibrations.

PCM mounting

What has everyone used to mount their pcm in a tj? Where have you located it? pictures would be awesome


I'm thinking on the tray under the master cylinder on the drivers side. Or moving my emissions canister there and putting the pcm on top of the fender where the canister was......

Dang it, that's my bad. I read your post after a bottle of rum and thought you were asking about the Bluetooth to phone stuff. I haven't heard of a Bluetooth gauge cluster, but I know speedhut makes a cluster that will plug into the obd2 port

There's actually a lot, and they're all over Amazon and eBay. I'd say check the reviews for them and google a little bit on the ones with the best reviews. There was a post in this thread about the BAFX Bluetooth dongle that said he'd been using it for a few years with no problems. Also worth a heads up if you're using an apple device apparently the Bluetooth dongles don't work well or at all and you need the wifi one
