    I always thought it was analgorithim. Good to know its true... What about oil pressure , is that true to gauge as well?

    I had the front of the senator digitally scanned few weeks back. Getting a bonnet made similiar to the pic below in link.
    Will get a custom radiator made so it sits below the the bumper crash bar. Then all air entering upper grill will go straight thru and out the bonnet, half the air going thru lower grill/radiator will get diverted upwards out the bonnet and the bottom half ill let run straight thru to cool starter and extractors. I may have to run cai intake tube as shown in link but will see once inverted bonnet scope is done

    It will cost a bit, bout 6-7k all up... being done professionally so I think it's going to look really nice.. I'll have the original bonnet so if it doesn't look good I'll swap when tracking it.. the main aim of it is my ground effects aero. Over 100kmph the handling is chalk n cheese to standard. The bonnet will improve on it
