Yep, I left the caps on, not worried about it. Just mentioned it because it came up as being for a manual trans in auto zones system. What I do worry about is the core material, if in fact it is copper, not sure if that will have any negative affects. Also the tighter fins spacing along with the smaller rows, although it's 2 rows instead of 1.
Average running temp has always been 186, hitting 190 sometimes on uphill climbs. I'm seeing 188-190 alot more often with this new radiator, not just on uphill pulls, but 186 is still average. Going downhill for some reason makes it run cool, always has, sometimes dropping to 182 before returning to the average 186.
