Winter Front

For them running it without any gages really watch out for warm weather. we had a warm snap to +5 degees cecus and the EGT'S get warm really fast and so does the tranny. more then once i had to stop on my run and just open the hood on HI idle for a few min to let everything cool back down. If i was relyling on fords idiot needles i would have probibly cooked something.

That is sure different than my 6.0. I run mine full closed going down the highway for temps up to 40*. Anything over 40* I just open up the two little flaps. I have gauges and never really noticed anything different outside of a lot faster warm ups.
