I have some 84 solid decklid vents that I bought when I had an 86 that I am going to use for project. But now I only have an 88, the struts are moved inward on the 88 so does anyone know if the 84 vents will work on the 88s?
My vents are buried somewhere, I plan to dig them out and check tomorrow, but just curious if anyone knows in the meantime
The 88 vents are unique, the inboard mounting tabs are wider and have two holes so they will fit the pre-88's. The 84 solid covers will not attach to the inboard bracket, some fabrication will be needed.
You might as well put something like that on a coolant switch.
I don't know that'd I'd want it to get that hot. Driving on the highway your fan may never come on because there's enough airflow over the radiator. That would keep the vent closed and not let any hot air out of the engine compartment. I'd want to either have a temp sensor for the engine bay controlling just the vent, or have them open whenever the ignition is on.
