Sorry weird question here, but I cannot see any form of cooling fan for the radiator.
Doing these dyno runs will this not cause the engine to get very hot and maybe cause timing or detonation issues?
I can hear the car fans running so it is obviously running warm, I just thought it could maybe damage the engine doing this??

I am happy to be wrong so please correct me.

As for the engine, it does sound really good and has a nice induction throaty noise.

I did note that he has and uses two floor fans of the squirrel cage type ahead of the dyno which are out of site. The new Aluminum radiator allows this thing to run quite cool and has never been much above the 190 mark since I installed it but yes, I would think that having a fresh supply of cooling air would be a good thing during a dyno run. Not sure if he turned them on during the run or not.
