Yes Russ is in the repair business as he runs a smaller shop in Regina. However, he is very knowledgeable on Corvettes as he has had his 04 Z apart and together a few times (long story about a certain dealership doing an extremely poor job under warranty). I'll always take mine to him to get fixed if I can. I'm sure if the market allowed, he would do more mods as I am sure he is very capable.

My C5 is at 90-95C (194-203F), think that is a good operating range.
You can change the Tstat to open at a lower temp, say 160F but then
you also need to adjust the 1st and 2nd fans to lower settings.
Do you have a tune in there or OEM?

What is this Russ and where could a guy locate his shop? I live an hour and a half from Regina and have Extremes ordered and headers in the cart awaiting Manny's input...likely toss a Vararam in for good measure...and need an installer.

Weird to put this on a Thanks Manny thread, but his name is Russ Kemp and he owns a repair shop called Auto Lab...I think. It's just off Albert north of Toy R Us. If you can't get Manny to do it, I'm sure Russ is the next best person to see.
