BPT Thermostat In Typhoon
Well they Grey Ghost (No 13) is finally going into Lynfords with a long list tomorrow, evething from broken door trim clips to wheel balance. Anyway at Barrys yesterday we found a couple of things that other typhoon owners might want to check on their cars. 1. No retainer clip from the thermostat housing to the radiator resaviour tank. 2. The hose coming out of the top of the rocker cover into the plenumn was just flapping in the breeze above the rocker instead of being pushed down and retained to the rocker cover fitting
. We also fitted a BPT high flow thermostat as per the BA GT (exact same one) and this has improved things considerably. I'm not sure whether it was the thermostat or the hose hanging off but low and mid range responsiveness has improved significantly and the temp struggles to crawl just past quarter on the gauge even in the opressive WA heat, a cheap mod well worth the $55 or so IMHO
