Not normal. They should never overheat.

Check for worn out/jammed thermostat, proper caps, proper fan operation, and bleed the coolant again.

Same here. I had some bobo vatozone fans on my koyo and had cooling issues when I moved here from SoCal. I installed some FAL slim fans and everything is cool.

Pretty sure these are the ones I used:

I say you should pay fifteen thousand dollars to an engineering company to model the fluid dynamics of extending the tubing and make a decision based on that data. Or feed the A/C vents through clothes dryer piping to the intake. I think both are reasonable and responsible choices.

It "shouldn't" blow your motor. Just make it so you can take it back off if your fuel trims get all jacked up.

So I've got an awesome clunk/pop noise that seems to be coming from the firewall. Who wants to help diagnose it at this week's meet? I'm going to double check motor mounts and ish, but they should be fine.

I don't think the Lightnings had it. I think it was just experimental.

That can only be done so many times until you start to bleed.
