Well guys I think I may have found my overheating problem. I did not have a spring in the bottom radiator hose (molded type) and it was sucking shut at high rpm's. I am the doctor of details, and the idiot of the obvious!!!!!

Well I put a 31" rad in and a "cookie cutter" shroud. It helped alot but I think adding a full shroud and driving the water pump at crank speed (now 20 percent underdriven)will make it even better. I'll let you know next week.
