I always wondered how that would work.
RedlineNoob had constant issues when driving 80+ down in the south on a stock block though

The air dam does not actually scoop air. It to draw the air thru the radiator. Powell gave a good explanation in a different thread. I'm too tired to remember better right now.

The air dam does two things;
It creates a pressure wave under the car that forcesair up into the rad, while also creates a vacuum behind it that draws air down.
A beat up, flimsy, bent over air dam could be part of the issue.

Right. It is a common issue.

I have experience it on very hot days just this past summer. For most 80* there is no problem. But once the temp gets up into the mid 90s my temp will creep up above 180.

Dudes...

As far as coolant temp is concerned, the fans come on "low speed" at 223*F and on "high speed" at 230*F. 180 degrees is nothing to this motor.

So, again, how much of an issue?

I drilled one hole in my brand new thermostat and even in the summer, the car ran so cool that I don't think it ever got above 165 even sitting and idling on the hottest days of the year.

Stock radiator, air dam in place.
