    Flew for an hour today. 160 is all I got. Guess I'll block a bit of the front too. Ice still looks iffy. Farmers field are about perfect though.

    I was never near that even in summer pushing it hard when I had the prop pitched way out to go on my trip to OH. I guess I'll find out all my limits a bit more when I go on floats. High power,...

    I'll see what I get for temps with a descent length leg. It was mounted on back just for ease of install. I may do a small block off plate in front to help get the temps up a bit more.

    Perfect. I don't think I'll make 165 doing takeoffs and landings.. but I was close to that with the shutter closed on a short 5 minute cruise up the river. (Ice not ready yet)

    Experimental Cub with 160. Cooler is on the back of motor.

    That was going to be my comment as well. Look at the area of the cooler that air can actually pass through. I think the shutter is plenty big enough.

    I haven't installed mine yet. Plan to do it...

    All is well on the TCOW. I'm amazed at how much cooler it runs with the prop pitched way down flat. I'm probably a little flatter than I SHOULD be for wheels.. with the 31s on there now. Ski...

    I guess what I was saying is I'm gonna stop more often than I NEED for fuel. I don't feel the need to tanker it up, and have never actually topped off the Auxes.
