I can't see the pics since I'm at work. Where is the crack... is it the core or the side tanks that crack or the crimps the connect the sidetank to the core?

I did my rad last year and it wasn't to bad to do so let me know if you need help(it takes 2 sets of hands).

And def get a new t-stat in there since they are only $15 or so.

Ok then, duct tape and bubble gum..Wow, cheaper than the $100 dedutable

Looks like you got the extended warranty? That helps, expecially when common things for this car is overpriced.

160 degree is fine but works better if the fan temps are adjusted too.

Tune can adjust when the fans, I belive the handhelds can as well.

Also be careful with the 160* t-stat, we are far enough north that it will most likely through a CEL for not hitting operating temps in the winter. When my stock t-stat failed(got stuck partially open) my temp wouldn't go all the way to normal unless I was in bumper to bumper traffic. At highway speeds I would CEL everytime. I replaced it with a stocker.

Yes its adjusted by a tune or programmer. If I remember correctly the 05-06 is adusted by percentage not by temperature.
