    Ok guy's all done!

    Hopefully the pictures will show exactly what I did. Only pic I forgot to take was of the applied high temp sealant. But it's all done and back together and working.

    I will add the temperature results shortly.

    And now on to the temperature changes. To say I am happy is an understatement.

    Before and after pics. Both after a gaming session on Project Cars 2.

    Ambient temps are a killer
