Oh. Wasn't aware of that, always referred to it as Graphite Metallic.

I have the fix. Come down to Daytona and I'll do it for you. Quit pussyfootin', Hannes.

Latest updates....modified the coolant mix from 95% distilled water 5% coolant to about 75/25.....Runs cooler...

Also deleted the rear cowl gasket. Seems to help cooling at speed. Looks like my cooling issues are finally under control.

Looks like SCT will be adding additional tables to the DCX Advantage software so that I can modify my hydraulic fan temps. Thats right, SCT is adding capabilities basically just for me....

Re: The Sleepy 4.7..................

Hmmm....no wonder...a 50/50 mixture is usually the minimum cooling mix you should use...70/30 for "higher performance" cooling is what the Prestone bottle said...but I think its 70% coolant, 30% water.

Ohhhh Ryan...calm down...LOL! I dunno if all that wire-snipping is for me...might just have to get a tune later on down the road...

You're a lucky boy getting SCT to do that for you!

Dude hate to burst your bubble but I have BEEN talking to SCT about the hydraulic fan, and again on the coolant. Water is the coolin agent, Glycol is the agent that gives it the ANTI-FREEZE properties.

Re: The Sleepy 4.7..................

I used to work in a foundry and i would have to quench the 1010* parts in a 22% glycol to water mixture. The only reason for the glycol was to help reduce evaporation of the water when the hot parts go in to it. Water does the main cooling. The glycol does help disburse the heat more evenly as well.

We'll see what happens. I haven't heard anything from Sean just yet.

For whatever reason the almost all-water mix is practically boiling within the system. Maybe this could be fixed by a higher pressure cap but I'm just reporting my findings. The coolant , regardless, raises the boiling point and is working to my benefit.

I don't know how you manage to keep your jeep cool especially with the paxton in there.

Re: The Sleepy 4.7..................

I beta-tested the new tune with the hydraulic fan setting tables. SUCCESS!!!! My jeep now runs at 180 all the time now.

Re: The Sleepy 4.7..................

Just purchased 2 Thunderbolt metallic cats. My ceramics are falling apart after about 6 months of hard use. Not Thunderbolt's fault, I meant to order the metallics to begin with. Will be installed this week....
