Purchased 2 of them and installed them. Install was easy, took 22 minutes. With the use of my buddies heat laser thing lol, it showed they helped reduce temps by 8 degrees. Good product !

On a side note, I spoke with CFM for a bit on the phone asking them about upcoming products. Currently they are working on a aluminum high capacity oil tank, radiator protector, and a aluminum intake box. I personally am looking forward to all of these products.

Another thing you have to take into consideration, that temp reading, was the machine sitting still. When you consider avg speeds of even 30 mph, that's a lot more cooling capability. Where gonna be doing some low speed temp gun readings coupled with just aiming a fan across the fins.

Also, the ESR (Eddie Sander's Racing) inline temp gauge is now installed. I incorrectly stated that you wouldn't be able to see the gauge while on the seat...I was wrong. Mounted on the LH side (upper hose) you can see the water filled gauge perfectly while on the seat. Very nice billet piece, and it's available in many custom anodized colors. It's a sealed mechanical unit, so unlike electrical units, it's impervious to moisture. Also some very professional people to work with.

I'm sure they're both quite accurate, and yes that's the one. It pokes out really nicely on the LH side next to the tank. I'm still finishing some mods up for a harescramble tomorrow, then the temp gun, and the thermocouples will be workign overtime doing all this coolant testing. I"m not sure it the other gauge is liquid filled, but this ESR unit is rock solid.

I just ducked out to the shop to measure things. You might be able to squeeze a second unit in with the temp gauge ( really tight fit), but truthfully, after this last weekends harescramble running one....I really don't think a person needs it.

Would there be a better side to mount a single one? Or does it not matter?

Thanks

I would mount a single on the RH side. The flow coming out of the engine could be left alone til it passes the fan switch, which is on the LH side of the radiator. Each of the cooling components will have it's own maximum level of heat disipation, so whether or not you'll be pre-empting the fan coming on, as opposed to just helping the cooling might be debatable....Hope this makes sense.

Yeah that makes sense. I looked on their website and it shows it on that side also. Thanks for the reply!!
