    Let me be of assistance;

    Obviously any person who has half a brain would know that melting #4 is a direct result of too much of one thing, and not enough of something else.

    Jeez! do I have to tell you everything?:rolleyes:

    Hey does the V6 SN fan cool pretty well? Because I have one of those laying around and may use it on my car if my current fan ever burns up.

    You'd think that but its got a lot more fuel and a lot less timing then every other hole...
    It seems to cool just fine. But it's been awhile since I had it out in the dead heat of summer
