So, after making a few repairs like a new radiator and a transmission cooler setup that actually works, I took the car for a shakedown drive.

Did a lot of thinking.

Pretty reasonable certain it's not airbound, did the whole uphill idle with the cap off until flow deal, and topped everything off.

I'm thinking the impeller is FUBAR.

LS1 Water pump question?

So I'm in the process of trying to sort out an odd issue in my '98.

The car doesn't overheat, but when idling the temp gauge does creep up. The engine is equipped with a 160 degree thermostat, and...

Just don't run the sensor too far back. It needs heat to work, and too far away it'll get cold and 'lazy' in it's response.

In my mind, you need to consider two factors:

How much is your car worth to you?

What did those wheels cost?

That coolant temp sensor you swapped locations isn't just a display, right? It's part of the Sniper EFI? It's real possible that the 'tune' is now off due to it seeing much higher coolant/engine...

Could be that too, but you'd figure that it would manifest as noises/clunks. It'll be interesting to see what it is at any rate.
