I've got a 82 Trans Am w/ a 468, Weiand Stealth intake, manifold filler neck, 160 thermostat, Jeg's 50 gpm electric water pump, 4 roll aluminum radiator w/ dual electric Hi output fans. This thing get "HOT" still in the garage. I've tried getting all the air out of the system with filling the radiator and the manifold with the filler neck. I'm using water first than wasting this Water Wetter addictive. I can start the engine, run for 5 - 10 minute and engine gets hot. The last time the upper radiator hose blew off the manifold filler neck at 170 deg.. I hope by put some RTV on the filler neck and tighten the radiator hose, I hope the thermostat will open and will be it. Have anyone had this problem before? or what can be my problem?
