Car is my daily and have zero cooling issues with it.
Since I deleted my trans heat exchanger long ago, I ended up running a 5/8 hose from the bottom connector on the coolant expansion tank down to the port in the bottom of the radiator that the heat xchanger used. I also plugged the hose with a that originally ran from the coolant expansion tank to the the 3 way connector that the tstat connects to instead of replacing the 3 way with an elbow. I'll post some pics later. Pretty clean install.
