"DOUBLE VISION"Registry

so ive been a member for awile now but never done one of these so i figured it was time and needed somewhere to bs and come up with ideas.i have a 92xl ex 4x4 and have had it for about 5 years.i got it from and ex parents for $500 and there was nothing at all wrong with it.it was a one owner truck and had all paperwork for all work done.my plans right now is to make it a good 4x4 and as fast as possible!!ill post pic and links to all my other threads as i ramble on.i decided to call it double vision because if you got double vision something is messed up and seems to be true with this truck!!:D

anyone know where i can get an automatic all ALUMINUM radiator from?right now im thinking of getting a manual one and using the ac radiator as a trans cooler,i dont have ac!!i think separating the two would work better and i can mount everything to the ac one like my other trans cooler and oil coolers and small fan to it and not run the risk of my main fan hitting the straps for it.here is the one im looking at right now

not sure. I thought the whole idea of the two core was to allow the heat of the engine coolant to help warm up the tranny fluid in wintertime. We don't exactly live in the arctic circle though, so your idea of using the a/c condenser as a tranny cooler would be great I think.

I'd say the cooler you can keep your A4LD the better so I'd go with the two separate ones

yea i would see no need for it to warm up unless you just start it and get right on it witch i dont i always remote start and let it get warm before i start driving.yea im going to try it out and see what happens it seems like as long as it dont drop below 130 i should be good.yea those artic rad are nice but for $330 i think ill try the manual one for $150 and its an inch or so thinner.everyone that ive talked to have said the cooler the better for the a4ld.im also going to a 160 thermostat to help with pre detonation

too MaximumViolence,good deal.just waiting on the valves,should be in teu.talked to my guy today and he said he finished the intake,he said there was a ton off stuff he took out 4 hours worth.he charged me $200 for the porting on the intake.he said that it should flow twice as good and should really make a difference.im going to take some pic of the valves and the lower intake and post them up hopefully tomorrow.hes still got to machine the heads and shave them down also.3 weeks is when i plan on putting this thing back in the truck.but that also depends because im wanting to have the upper&lower intake done in black chrome powder coat or something thats close to a shinny gun medal color(what im going to paint the truck) and the valve covers done in chrome.but for now ive been replacing the doors and fenders on the driver side from when i rolled it over on its side

hey those stock valves look familiar :D those SI pieces look nice...I see why they call them "swirl polished".

haha those are yours.yea man they do look good.i just got back from dropping them off at the shop and he said the same thing he was surprised by how much different they are.and man he really went to town on that intake,he had to take out some of the sides to really be able to open it up.im not to crazy about having some spots epoxied but he said hes done it a 1000 time and thats the only way to get some of the bends out and get it to REALLY flow.i told him if it comes loose or falls out the truck will be on a tow truck at his shop for him to take apart and fix if there was a problem and he said he was fine with that and he would let me use his truck till it was fixed.so that made me feel a little better:biggthumpo hes got a SICK BUILT HEMI truck
