boy does that bring back memories i know exactly the article you are talking about in hot rod magazine back in the early 80's smokey yunick desined a fiero with what he called a heat exchanger. he cut the radiator in half because in ran so cool. i did a report on it in vo-tech school. he took the engine in the fiero which like most engine only produce 20% of its power and got it up to 80% of its potential with just regulating all the heat the engine produces. smokey said with that system on a V8 the power would be amazing.

I have to say that your problem will be with the oil still. Smokey ditched the plan because he couldnt get an affordable oil that would last long enough in the engines. You might have to go full on AMSOIL.
