I'm sure engineering it and thinking hard enough thats not the most ideal thing.... but I'd say run it and keep an eye on the temp. I can't imagine that 90 giving you any problems.... Maybe someone not so close to perry county can add there 2 cents.

I don't think it will be a big problem, but yeah, run it and keep an eye on the temps. Many summer only rigs run some type of flow reducing shim in place of the thermostat to keep them from running too cool. A thermostat's only real function is to keep heat in the engine in cold temps. Once an engine is up to temp, the thermostat is pretty much wide open. I guess my point is that for a trail rig that never really sees a lot of natural air flow (from driving highway speeds) the thermostat will be your biggest restriction even when it is fully open, probably more than a 90 in the coolant line.

I sure hope it works cause there's no back up plan, got tranny and tcase back in today and got motor all wired and was gonna fire it up just to see if it goes boom and the stock valve covers I had to use has a big raise oil fill spout that's hitting my upper intake, so looks like I will be going to jegs either tomorrow or Thursday , hopefully tomorrow I can get my new crossmember fabricated up and done before the rain hits. Stupid rain

It doesn't take much coolant flow to cool a 100hp motor. It should work just fine. LOL Just kidding! It don't see that being a problem.

Well got my crossmember done, just needs finished welding, turned out pretty nice for me fabbing it up and marking everything and taking it too my brothers to weld it up, did I mention this project is all being done under a tree with a generator to run power tools lol Image here's the crossmember loosely bolted in, had to notch it out for front output, it's plated very good and I'm gonna add gussets to end brackets Image new valve covers came today and sumbitch they won't clear the intake, so I need a intake spacer now, I'm still pissed about losing my other covers but these ones look sweet Image and got my exhaust figured out, will remove clamps once it's welded upImage other than a few little things it's ready to go, sure wish I could start it, gonna be a long week

It runs. Haven't driven it yet but no knocks or apparent issues. I'm pretty freaking stoked
