Thanks for all the responses.
after doing some digging, it appears that all of the F-Types have identical cooling
Thank you! I will be holding off on the radiator for now. We do have track days and I reside in Texas, which means track days @ 95+ degrees. Once we do one or two, I will keep an eye on temps and possibly order the part at that time.
Exactly! There is one thread where the guy saw about 16 or so HP out of it with Dyno results, but we will see. I also plan on taking videos from inside the car and figuring out a way to mount a GoPro or mic on the hood to record SC whine if any starts to appear after this.
Plano, right by Dallas. I was in Houston 2 weeks ago for a day but I usually stay well north. We go to Eagles Canyon the most but may be expanding soon.
Most people do over look this, which is silly due to the low cost associated with the upgrade (labor intensive at times however). I called NGK and was told that they do not carry any plugs cooler than what is currently on the car (Part #SILZKAR7E8S, Stock#93476). I was advised by VAP to get some if I could and data log the car as they may be able to squeeze a little bit more out of it with the plugs.
Do you have any links that confirm fitment and maybe a link to purchase those online? Seeing how we will have the car half taken apart within the next couple of weeks, this would be a no brainer.
Colder plugs do not just "add power" in the sense that a tune, intake or exhaust do. They require tuning to get a difference as far those butt numbers go, but they do allow the car to operate at lower temps. Cooler is always better, especially after adding mods and boost which will cause additional heat.
I was SO happy when they mentioned them to me, it really just re-enforced why I chose them as a tuner.
The only thing I am on the fence about with them is that their crank pulley is constructed out of Steel (if I remember right) while a identical size is available out of Aluminum from another source. I feel like less weight is always better? But feel free to chime in on this.
So just to recap, here is what we are doing:
Base Line Dyno Pull
(Current mods are a custom, de-catted 2.5" exhaust with VAP Stage 1 Tune)
Mod Dyno Run
(Will replace the exhaust with hopefully a 100 Cell Cat and FI Exhaust which is stunning, will be adding the Crank Pulley and bumping the tune up to Stage 2 from VAP)
Intake Dyno Run
Everything from the previous run plus the Eventuri intake.
We will probably dyno log and possibly adjust a few things to squeeze a tad more power out of it at a later point but this will give everyone good base numbers for "full" bolt ons (still waiting on those headers from VAP
